Susan Burnstine, “In The Midst”

The past year has been an unusual blend of many cross-currents in monochromatic fine art. The talent for documentary and creative post production intensive photo art continues to evolve at a rapid pace, no doubt due to the growing flexibility of digital technology . But a respect for alternative print processes, simple “toy cameras” and traditional view cameras keeps whole segments of artists well rooted in legacy techniques.

After 220 articles this year detailing exhibits, galleries, events, collector strategies, artists and technology we will attempt to summarize “the best of the best” of 2010 in a series of articles starting  today with a list of the top emerging fine art photographers we witnessed this year. These artists range from being early in their careers to mature artists, still expanding their audiences.

Rather than offer commentary on each, we will provide click through links to examples of their work so that you the reader can judge the merits of the imagery. These artists were identified from hundreds of photographers by on site visits to exhibits, major art fairs, virtual galleries or portfolio reviews in Los Angeles, Houston, Atlanta, Washington, DC, Philadelphia and New York.

In no particular order:
