As the Andrew Harper photo editor, I get to travel — virtually — every day as I scan through each image our editors submit after their travels. And travel they do. In 2017, our team flew a collective 125,000 miles to 16 different countries, and I looked through over 7,800 photos for use in The Hideaway Report and on AndrewHarper.com. With each issue I have favorites — the ones that stand out in my mind’s eye. Whether it’s an exterior shot of a building turned more interesting by a bicyclist riding by or the natural simplicity of a breathtaking view, these images speak volumes about the incredible places our editors have visited. As I look back at the year, it’s challenging to choose my absolute favorites, but here are 13 that impressed me immediately.
Without the professional setup and lighting, food shots can be difficult,
which is why these beautiful images of dishes at Courtier at Weissenhaus Grand Village Resort, in Weissenhaus, Germany, were so exciting to see.
