From Piotr Pytel’s black and white study of a Muay Thai Boxing club in Wroclaw, to Patrick Welde’s photographs of Strasbourg girls laid bare, since the birth of TRIP in August 2013, we’ve set about bringing you the best in contemporary photography, fashion and culture, from some of the finest image-makers in the world.

As we bow out of 2014, in what was TRIP's first full year, we take another look at 20 of our favourite features, interviews and shoots that we’ve published both online and in print over the last 12 months.

We asked Cactus Gallery's Joe Orr to curate our first online exhibition. His prompt was simple; to send him the last photograph you took using your mobile phone - no limits. The outcome highlights a societal fascination for the documentation of the mundane, whether it's through the autonomous recording of life's unusual occurrences or a mass self(ie) appreciation - one thing is clear - we are a generation obsessed with the immediacy of cloud-based image sharing, and the results, when viewed away from these platforms, are surprisingly fascinating.
