© Eric PercherEach year American Photo magazine publishes their list of the top emerging photographers in the world. Last year I was very honored to be named to the list. I've worn my 2007 sash proudly and now gladly pass it on to a new crop of talented photographers.
I can't begin to tell you how happy I am to see my very dear friend, Eric Percher, included. Eric and I met at a Maine Photography Workshop back in 2002 when we both were beginning to explore the idea of becoming serious photographers. I'm so thrilled his work is getting the recognition it deserves.
Also notable among the list are Alejandra Laviada, Sarah Small, Julie Blackmon and Kelli Connell.
