poster for "The Year in Pictures" Exhibition

This event has ended.

The exhibition "The Year in Pictures" presents a selection of photographs featured in the blog "The Year in Pictures" (pictureyear.blogspot.com). Begun in 2007, the blog has been a platform for my personal enthusiasm about the medium – a place to share good and new work that is sent to me or that I see on my travels; alert readers to new exhibitions, books, and other photography events; and reflect on ideas and issues. Since it's inception, the blog has posted over 500 stories, received over a million visits, and is viewed an average of 50,000 times a month.

Thinking about an exhibition to usher in the new year (which also marks the 20th Anniversary of the opening of the James Danziger Gallery in Soho) showing some of the young photographers whose work I had featured on the blog seemed an apt way of looking forward. Looking back, one wall in the show is dedicated to four giants of photography who passed away in the last year - Evelyn Hofer, Helen Levitt, Irving Penn, and Julius Schulman - and two renowned photographic muses - Bettie Page and Charis Wilson - whose significance was noted on the blog.

The 15 contemporary photographers featured in the show represent 9 different countries – Saudi Arabia, Korea, Denmark, Britain, Mexico, Japan, France, Canada, and the U.S.. Over half have work I had originally only seen via the internet, evidencing the well-known power of the web as a connector, and what is sometimes taken for granted – the web's unrivalled capacity as a transmitter of photographic images.
