LENSCRATCH Favorite Photographs of 2011 Exhibition

Happy 2012! A huge thank you to all the hundreds of photographers that sent me their favorite images of 2011. Note that these images are favorites and speak to the photographer in a meaningful way. I love creating this annual post, allowing photographers who have never shared their work to sit along side significant image makers. They way I see it is that we all share a common passion and why not bump up against each other once in awhile.

I wish you all many successes in 2012 and that the joy of creating photographs continues to enrich your lives. Thank you for reading Lenscratch and for enhancing my life with your work. This post is created in 5 parts so as not to crash the rss feed (which happened last year). Simply keep going through older posts until you reach the end.

And finally I’m sharing my two favorites–the first is an image I’ve had in my head for a couple of years, and the second is more personal, a reflection of a life transforming trip.
