It was absolutely delightful to review such an amazing group of photographs which displayed a range of styles, interpretations, content, and genres of photographic explorations. Prominent considerations that tied my selections together were the artists' personal visions, their ability to create and define our contemporary lives through their photographs.
The artists whose photographs are highlighted here inspired me because many were not bonded to photographic traditions of the past, whether exterior or interior space, landscapes, or portraits. These photographers have all successfully conveyed inspiring and unique perspectives on our contemporary world with their voices.
