With another year of pictures under our belt, it’s time again to spotlight our Photo of the Year – an image that most captured the imagination of The Travel Word team and a group of external judges: A Gondolier on the Job, Venice, Italy.

Photo of the Week (12 October 2012) - A Gondolier on the Job, Venice, Italy

Like our Photo of the Year 2010 and Arog Vila is a New York-based photographer who developed his unique aesthetic and rule-breaking composition studying at the International Center of Photography, the New School and the School of Visual Arts. He delivers crisp and edgy images of photojournalistic human narrative, pointing his camera on the expected from an entirely new angle, then turning to the unusual and connecting it to something familiar and beautiful.
