Peter Dench, one of Britain’s most celebrated photojournalists, Olympus Visionary, PhotoBite contributor, and all-round good egg, has announced the launch of his latest photobook and exhibition.

Peter’s latest project, named Trans-Siberian World Cup, documents his travels across Russia for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which saw him cover many of the nation’s 11 time zones and traversing two continents. Adopting the services of the Trans-Siberian Railway, Peter’s journey covered a staggering 5,772 miles across seven time zones in seven days in what must now hold the title of the ultimate away day.
