As a photographer, I spend a lot of time looking at the work of other artists. These are the artists that have most captured my attention in 2012. When I look at their work, I am compelled to wonder what went into making the final product. How did they find that location, where the hell is it? How far did he have to hike to catch that light at just the right time? How much patience did it take to wait for all of those elements to fall perfectly in line? How many times did she move the subject to get that specific angle? Take a look at their work, decide for yourself, but I think these are the best of 2012.
