Tony Burns (United Kingdom, 1978) I'm a freelance Editorial photographer from the UK, now living in Brisbane, Australia. My work focuses mainly on city life around the world and artistic interpretation of place. I’ve tried to capture the beauty of daily life and specific aspects of cities and their cultures, exploring them as far as I can. My images are represented by Lonely Planet / Getty and have appeared in publications such as The Telegraph, National Geographic, The Guardian, Sunday Times Travel and the BBC.
