To celebrate Earth Day, we approached some of our favourite photographers to feature an image that celebrates the natural world and our place within it. For many of us, the past year has cemented the positive impact that nature has on our lives and how important it is that we preserve it. So sit back and escape into these photographs, from wherever in the world you may be.
