64 photos by 64 photographers

First off, thank you all for making Booooooom such an awesome little community. I have so much fun working on this site every day (and night). I’m really excited to show you the things I have lined up for this next year, but more on that later!

Rather than compile a boring year-end “best of” list, I’ve gathered 64 photos by 64 photographers that I came across in 2009. The photos weren’t necessarily produced this past year, I simply encountered them for the first time in the last 365 days.

I’ve been sitting here, staring at these photographs for a few hours now, and I’ve decided I’d like nothing more than to remember each of them until the day I die.

I hope you enjoy them. Happy New Year!

  • Joel

    Thanks for an amazing post, and an awesome year! Happy New Year!

  • Thanks so much for this post! The photos are all lovely. I like how they all seem to have the same tone, so to speak. About finding the self, seeing the beautiful in the sublime, the secret loveliness of being human and our constant struggle between beauty and banality.

    A very good way to enter a new year, thinking about the beauty that so often lies beneath, as long as we look for it.

    • i’ve never been able to fully describe the common thread between a lot of the photographers i feature here but maybe ill just memorize what you just said and use that haha. i think there is definitely a similar spirit or tone in these and many of them are about little magic moments in the everyday

  • pbo

    you’re amazing! thank you! super new year to you.

  • Fantastic! Wonderful shots! Happy New Year!!

  • awesome selection Jeff,
