Fresh, inspiring, insightful, thought-provoking: here is an overview and introduction to 150 of the most exciting contemporary photographers from cultures around the world. This book celebrates excellence in the visual language of photography in all genres: documentary, fine art, photojournalism, portrait, street photography, abstract, landscape, architecture, nature, alternative process, experimental, poetic, personal, and more. From the already world-famous, to brand new discoveries and emerging talents, anyone who is serious about the current state of photography around the globe will be delighted and surprised to discover the rich variety of photographers and their imagery presented in these pages. In the age of digital cameras, smartphones and constant sharing, everyone can be considered a photographer today - but who are the people who are practicing this profound universal language with "fluency" in our image-saturated world? This book attempts to answer that question. The editors of this volume believe it takes the critical eyes of curators and experts in the field to discover and celebrate true excellence, finding those images that stand out from the crowd and deserve our considered attention. These photographers, hailing from 62 countries on five continents, were selected by the editors of LensCulture in conjunction with panels of world-class critics, photo editors, museum curators, agency directors, award-winning photographers, and influential media movers and shakers. In addition to appearing in the pages of this book, all of these photographers have been featured in exhibitions and shows at large-scale international photo festivals and events around the world in the past year, including London, Paris, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Berlin, New York, San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Beijing, Seoul and Tokyo.
