The Drapery by Eric Kunsman

The Drapery, Eric Kunsman

Well crafted imagery is a key to understanding Eric Kunsman’s award winning photographs …

 The body of work created demonstrates a previous attempt at prison reform from the popular European model in the 1800’s. The images help viewers to understand how many things have not changed over the passing of time whether that relates to the crimes the prisoners committed or the conditions they face during incarceration.

Now through February 28.

Happy New Year to our readers!

Of the hundreds of articles in our archives, the most popular are the annual lists of photographers we choose as the “Best of the Best” for each year. The interest in this group of evolving artists, at different stages in their careers, always exceeds our expectations.

The contributors to this website viewed thousands of fine art images and attended dozens of galleries, museums and fairs throughout the year. To distill all that activity into a single brief list is obviously a difficult (but enjoyable) task and should foster days of discussion by visitors to BWGallerist.

So with that said, here is the the 2018 “Best of the Best” list in no particular order:

Our congratulations go out to these talented artists.
