10 Stunning Photos From The Art of Photography Show 2009

Passengers without ticket in Bangladesh by G.M.B. Akash [Link]

If you make your way to the Lyceum Theatre Gallery in San Diego's historic Gaslamp Quarter from now till November 1st, you'll get to see a world-class international exhibition of photographic art. The competition was judged by Charlotte Cotton, the Curator and Head of the Photography Department at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). Now in its fifth year, Ms. Cotton narrowed down the exhibition to 111 stunning images from over 16,000 photographs she received (from 57 countries).

How did these 10 (shown here) make the cut? They were original. They were photographs that were different, that had subtleties and conceptual nuances. At the end of the day, it was the works that conveyed an idea or told a story that made the cut, photographs that gave a commentary about our world today.
