This year's distinguished jury included photo editors and creative directors from The New York Times Magazine, National Geographic, Variety, and BuzzFeed News, and we're very grateful to them and to everyone at American Photography.
Photographer Aaron McKenzie Fraser and I dreamed up the idea for this shoot in our kitchen last spring and we were very lucky to have some talented folks help us turn it into a reality. They are Emma Wells, Evelyn Rose O'Hearn, Mercedes Paull-Newton, Stephanie Joline Clattenburg, Darcy Lyndon Fraser and John Cochrane; they’re a dream team.
This year's winning images are posted on American Photography's website here.
Holy lobster claws! We're pretty proud of our little Canadian/Maritimes/Ketch Harbour/Sambro team!
