It was my great pleasure to serve as a reviewer in this year's American Society of Media Photographers Portfolio Review in New York City. Together with a very distinguished group of friends and colleagues, including Elizabeth Avedon, Jim Estrin and Ruben Natal-San Miguel among many others, we spent an evening looking at work by talented local photographers.
Parisian photo daily L'Oeil de la Photographie dedicated a whole issue to the reviews asking each one of the reviewers to pick an artist to showcase on their pages. My pick - as well as writer Rebecca Robertson's - was the very talented Jon Henry who is re-inventing the way athletes are photographed. His lush prints are as much a tribute to Caravaggio as they are to the prowess, grace and dedication of professional athletes.
