The What Youth 2015 The best photos of the year: action and lifestyle

the what youth 2015 top 5 photos

The amount of imagery that comes through these doors is incredible. And in a world run mad by social media, you’d be safe to say we’re all on imagery overload — so it takes truly breathtaking imagery to get to us. There is no social media outlet that could do the following images justice: These aren’t the kind of photos that you double tap, these are the ones that double tap you, and keep you coming back to ponder, images that haunt your day, your night, and your dreams. Begging how did they freeze that moment? How did they get there? Who’s behind the camera? Who’s in front of it? How? These are the 10 images (and three honorable mentions) that begged all these questions to us, all year.
