American Photography 26 will launch November 11th.
“American Photography presents the best images by established and emerging photographers selected by an outstanding jury from thousands of entries. The collection, gathered from books, magazines, promotional and personal portfolios, offers an informed view of photography today, with images that resonate through their clearly individual point of view. American Photography is a time capsule in the making.
American Photography offers a who’s who in photography, with images by Luc Delahaye, Lee Friedlander, Nan Goldin, Jean Paul Goude, Lauren Greenfield, Brigitte Lacombe, Vincent Laforet, Annie Leibovitz, Martin Parr, Paolo Pellegrin, Spencer Platt, Martin Schoeller, Stephanie Sinclair, to name a few. Work by today’s masters is interspersed with pictures by photographers just beginning to make a name for themselves…
American Photography, founded in 1985, is the leading juried annual and advocate of contemporary photography in North America and the world. Regarded by creative professionals as the number one source for today’s finest image makers, American Photography is the premier showcase for editorial, advertising, fine art and experimental work. With a history of presenting the most cutting-edge images, its pages have honored work by Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton and William Wegman and has proudly promoted the early careers of Sally Mann, David LaChapelle, Elinor Carucci and Steven Maisel.
The books, designed with defiant irreverence, are themselves objects of beauty and debate and have been recognized by every top design competition, including the AIGA 50 Books/50 Covers, The Art Directors Club, The British Design & Art Direction, I.D., Communication Arts, How, The One Club and Print Regional Design.”
