“Mystery” Photo Competition Winners

Impossible architecture, spooky stories and fabulous fairytales in the winning photos in our “Mystery” themed photo competition.

It’s arguably the case that all great photographs contain mysteries; something hidden as well as what is revealed. We asked you to send us photos on the theme of our “Mystery” issue back in March, and these are our top 10 from the entries we received.  We picked Dorothee Lang’s My Stery as the winner because we loved the sense of depth in this image. It demands to be looked at, decoded, turned around like a puzzle box until we understand, but doesn’t quite give us the answer we want. There were also images which asked questions, told stories and hinted at a little magic. Have a look at our top 10 below.
