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!

LUKE RAMSEY INTERVIEW

What was your favourite book growing up?

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, and I was always taken by Richard Scarry’s books too.

Richard Scarry’s Busy Busy World is my favourite book of all-time. I really hope they never try to turn them into live-action movies.

You know they will. I read that there’s a Lego movie coming out. I’m a huge Thundercats fan, and I’m worried about the new movie that’s coming out, because the series is truly profound and the animation is solid. The animators from the original series went on to work for Studio Ghibli (Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle).
