It started two years ago.

We love sharing inspiring photographers with you and on a whim, we compiled 100 Photographers to Watch.

Since we loved the process so much and you loved the list so much, we came back last year with another group of amazing Photographers to Watch in 2016.

And we’re back again. Like the previous years, our staff, mentors, and editors scoured the internet to come up with a long list of both established and up-and-coming photographers. These photographers are experts and continually wow us with their work.

Among the great list of nominees, 15 of our talented photographers and image curators voted for their favorites – the photographers they are most excited to follow. We are pleased to share with you the voting results, a beautiful and varied collection of artists worth checking out.

So grab a cup of your favorite drink and perhaps a slice of cake and get ready to be inspired. These are our “100 Photographers to Watch in 2017“!
