The end of one year and the beginning of another ring in the compilations of various lists, whether it’s the best-of or worst-of, and everything in between for every subject imaginable. Photography is no exception.
Invariably, all these end-of-year lists are controversial to one degree or another. Heck, I was Time Magazine’s Person of the Year in 2006 (but, then again, so were you). And so it goes, even with photography lists. Ultimately, such lists are incredibly subjective. What data can use to support the best artwork of 2011, be it photographic, painted or digital? You can’t, but that’s not the point.
Junebug Weddings, based in Seattle, recently compiled what it considers the top 50 wedding photos of 2011, based on almost 5,000 images submitted by 500 top wedding photographers. The 50-best collection includes the work of Jerry Ghionis, Ben Chrisman, Susan Stripling and Marcus Bell. It’s Junebug’s fourth annual collection of the best wedding photography of the year.
