Best Photo of the Year

To make pure alcohol, start with a batch of raw ingredients. Distill it, and you’ll get a more refined batch. This is how we compiled this best-of-the-year photo gallery. We started with thousands of images. Gradually we selected the shots that illustrate skiing and photography in new and different ways, along with an explanation from each photographer. Please enjoy responsibly. Then we asked you, our readers, to vote for your favorite image. Introducing the Readers' Choice award for Best Photo of the Year.

French Alps based photographer and longtime Skiing contributor Christoffer Sjöström has a new 175-page hardcover coffee table photo book filled with stunning shots of Candide Thovex taken over the last 10 years. “Candide is one of the greatest pioneers within the world of skiing, and he was one of the riders who changed and turned the sport to what it is today,” says Sjöström. The book features a wide selection of lifestyle and action shots taken from 1999 to 2009 and interviews with top riders such as Tanner Hall, Jon Olsson, Simon Dumont, Sammy Carlson, and others talking about Candide. “This book is a showcase of my work and I chose to do it about one of the best riders I’ve worked a lot with during the past 10 years,” Sjöström says. “I really like these kinds of books myself and I had been toying with the idea for a few years. I didn't want to make a book of my random portfolio photos, but preferred to tell a story about one of the innovators of freestyle skiing. The book captures different themes that I thought have been important in his life as well as his career as a pro skier such as his home resort La Clusaz, Alaska, Candide invitational event, the X Games, his big injury and after.” The book does not have a U.S. distributor yet, so the easiest way to purchase the book is at thebookofcandide.com. The cost is 45 Euros ($62 US), shipping included. Take a look at the following slides for a peak at what is inside The Book Of Candide.
