The best of 2010 (updated)

When you look back at 2010, what photos, photo books, and exhibitions stand out the most in your memory? Here’s a look at some of the best-of lists compiled by various websites and other  photo blogs—starting with a handful of new posts that went up over the holiday break:

.

THE 2010 TOP TEN LIST,
JAMES DANZIGER’S BLOG, THE YEAR IN PICTURES.

Photo by Mickalene Thomas. Courtesy of The Year in Pictures. "The connections between contemporary art and traditional photography continue to intertwine as seen here in Mickalene Thomas’ bad-ass tribute to Seydou Keita," writes Danziger. "Jumping between painting, appliqué, and photography, Mickalene Thomas is just one of the new breed of hyphenates making waves as the art and photography world continue to grow closer together."

PDN asked the editors of the photo blogs for four major newspapers which of their 2010 posts were the most popular. "Wall Street Journal director of photography Jack Van Antwerp reports that an assignment to a handful of photographers to go out and shoot scenes in New York City after hours grabbed the most attention this year on their 'Photo Journal' blog," writes PDN. "Van Antwerp believes the quality of the photography and the subject—what New York looks like when most of us are asleep—led to the high interest in the post."

    I saw this book in my favorite shop just after Christmas and bought it immediately. What a pleasure to see it on Elizabeth’s list. It is certainly now on mine.
