Best Photos of 2017

National Geographic

Not your average «year in images» gallery. Most of these images show people, events, sceneries you haven’t seen before. And all are linked to highly fascinating stories. A true rabbit hole to go explore over the weekend.

Europe’s new borders

Photographic Museum of Humanity

Powerful images from Europe’s borders, captured with drones. In the photographer’s own words: «My project, Europe’s New Borders, offers a sense of scale on the dehumanized border crisis unfolding in Europe throughout the last two years. It covers most of the borders of the European Union, the transformation of these, and the consequences, big and small, concrete and abstract, for the refugees and migrants.»

The Mammoth Pirates

Radio Free Europe

From arctic permafrost to Chinese luxury markets: Mammoth ivory is a thing, apparently. A fascinating photo reportage.
