Andy’s Best Of and why for 2021:
Agence Roger-Viollet : Joséphine Baker by Boris Lipnitzki : Because she is a mythic figure but except for a few pictures, mainly clothed and posed she is never seen.
Peter Arnell : Pompeii : Not for the pictures of the facades but for the objects of everyday life, the wagon, and the Amphora and the figures huddled at the moment of their doom.
Photo London 2021 : Nick Brandt : The Day May Break : Because they are beautiful and powerful and they contain mysteries
Bronx Documentary Center : URGENCY! Afghanistan : Because we must witness what we have been part of doing.
Catherine Edelman Gallery : Lea Lund & Erik K : Nomads : Because I always love the pictures no one else can make.
Girls! Girls! Girls! : Marco Glaviano : Supermodels : Because here we see the raw element of fashion, the body without the clothes that are the pretense for our fascination.
Phot’Aubrac 2021 : Kyriakos Kaziras : Because we need to treasure the world and all that it contains.
