ASMP NEW YORK Photo Annual

Thomas Donley // President, ASMP New York A Letter from the President When I look at the pages of our new 2017 ASMP New York Photo Annual, I think - “seeing is believing!” – which brings up a couple of thoughts for me. Immediately, looking at the wide range of work within this Annual, it becomes clear to me how deeply I believe in who we are as highly talented photographers, those who are raising the bar and are wholly dedicated to our chosen profession as visual creators. We care deeply and passionately about what we do. All of the members whose work are contained on these pages represent the New York Chapter of ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers), the premier trade organization for the photography industry for nearly 75 years. We have been the home to many a great photographer – from legendary image creators to new and undiscovered talent alike. I also have the thought, while “seeing is believing,” is clearly used to state that one’s own belief can only be validated through tangible results, what we fundamentally do as photographers is quite the opposite. “What do I mean by that?” First, we see. Then we create. It is a given that photographers are all about seeing and vision. This ability to see, to envision, to conjure, occurs regardless of what is being shown by ‘reality’. Whether it is seeing through the chaos of a live moment or seeing beyond the blankness of studio walls to illustrate the profound or animate the absurd, it’s our ability as photographers to see that rich, multi-layered visual story… to see first – that is the alchemy of photography and the photographer for me. Then we can create the photograph, the tangible manifestation of that vision. It is the photograph that then can be shared with others and they in turn can say – “seeing is believing.” I invite you to enjoy the craft, the art, and the vision of the beautiful work that lies within these pages. There are many to thank for making this book possible. I will start by thanking our curator for this Photo Annual series these past three years - Julie Grahame. Julie brings her passion and her wisdom to these pages, always – thank you! To our book designer, Iván Marrero, for creating a volume that expresses who we are as photographers, you are a wonderful partner in this enterprise and are very much appreciated. Big thanks are due to our ASMP New York board, including our Sponsorship Chair, Salem Krieger, for bringing forth our relationship with our key sponsor, Xerox, who produces these books for us. And to all of our sponsors, starting with Xerox for their partnership and vision, including generous support from Sitewelder, B&H Photo, and ASMP itself. Please enjoy our ASMPNY PHOTO ANNUAL 2017! It is a joy to share who we are with you. It is also meant to be a dialogue between who we are as photographers in the ASMPNY family and the rest of our photo community at large. We want to hear from you and invite you to get in touch and be engaged in our world. Thank you!

Julie Grahame // A Note From the Curator Congratulations to the photographers selected to be included in the 2017 ASMP Photo Annual. There were no obvious trends this year, but with a broad set of members we see a good variety of work, from architecture to beauty, still life to street. Having free rein to choose as many as 100 images is a luxury, and as we go along, we begin to see natural flows, pairings and relationships. I feel this is another strong collection of images that will make a fabulous source book. Julie Grahame is the publisher of, a full-screen photography magazine, and the associated aCurator blog, one of the ten best photo sites named by the British Journal of Photography and one of’s top 20. She has represented the estate of Yousuf Karsh for licensing for 12 years. Grahame is a consultant, portfolio reviewer, writer and speaker. She is a member of American Society of Picture Professionals (ASPP) and is Vice President of the American Photography Archive Group (APAG). She judges photography for various non-profits, including ASMP, and is a contributing writer for PDN’s Emerging Photographer and EDU magazines. In 2013 she helped launch a new website dedicated to architectural photography, as well as working a spell as associate director for ClampArt, a gallery in New York. In a former life, she ran the Retna photo agency. Photo by Michael Putland
