Google always works from a location.

However, there several methods of altering the location used:

* in Google search under 'Search Tools' click on the current location and enter another: note: it may restrict to your own country.

* in Google search enter google.com and then click on result.

Note: above two presuming not already on google.com, rather on google.ca, google.co.uk, etc.

* use a proxy in a different region or country

* use StartPage - it uses google search through a proxy.

ok, did not know always tied to location. So there is no definitive result for photography, food, art etc

Everyone's results are personalised to some degree with every query...there really is no more generic query result, which is why many of us no longer pay attention to SERP ranking - even in Webmaster Tools (so I understand as I don't use) when they note most popular queries they show an 'average' position, which given Google and their data sharing is likely imperfect.
