VSCO Cam® Best of 2013: The World

One of the most powerful things that modern photography brings is a sense of commonality amongst humanity. Through the VSCO Cam images shared from around the world, we see a beautiful array of environments, people, places, and cultures. Your perspective is important and has the power to inspire change in the life of another, regardless of the distance which separates you. As the highly revered American novelist and political activist Susan Sontag exclaimed, "...the most grandiose result of the photographic enterprise is to give us the sense that we can hold the whole world in our heads—as an anthology of images."

Below are some of our favorite photographs of 2013 taken from places spanning this planet we call home. Congratulations to the selected photographers, and thank you for sharing your world using VSCO Cam, along with VSCO Grid℠.
