An exhibit at D.C.'s Phillips Collection explores the intimacy and tension of portrait photography. When someone takes our picture, we usually deliver a mile-wide grin, but there's not a smile in the room at the Phillips Collection's photography show in Washington.

10 photo highlights of the day

10 photo highlights of the day | Mobile Photography | Scoop.it

Each day the picture editor of the Guardian brings you a selection of top photographs. This collection of photographs of the day, showcases these photographers from around the globe.

The photo above shows the first snow, that has already fallen over Teesdale in County Durham, making the landscape black and white. Photograph is by Paul Kingston/North News & Pictures Ltd.

Kitty Fisher's insight:

These 10 photos range from happiness to a photo that shows a burning field that was used by fruit and vegetable sellers in Islamabad, Pakistan. It goes to show that in one day these photographs have one thing in common, something is always happening and whether or not you have a camera to document it...we may lose sight of what is really going on.
