Always Go Back To the Beginning, Paula Gibson

Happy New Year to our readers! With a record freeze hitting the United States it is a good time to warm our hearts viewing great photography.

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, but provides us encouragement to put together “the list” yet again for 2017.

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 2017 “Best of the Best” list in no particular order:

Our congratulations go out to these talented artists. See you next year for the 2018  “Best of the Best” Emerging Fine Art Photographers.

Same As It Ever Was 01 by Salvatore Corso

Same As It Ever Was 01, Salvatore Corso

Observation of surrounding details found in wedding locations has been the subject of many photographic essays. Corso’s approach, using Black and White images, lifts the abstract structure he “sees” beyond the cliche event document into the creative realm of enhanced vision.

The title ‘same as it ever was’, is a reference to the fact that no matter how fashion trends and technology change, what a wedding comes down to is two people who want to live together.

The exhibition runs through January 31.
