Other dealers nominated some remarkably diverse favorites, a sign of the great range of photography on view in the past 12 months. Leo Rubinfien’s Wounded Cities at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., got Robert Mann’s vote: “Suspending enormous, naked prints by wires from its towering ceilings was incredibly effective and unforgettable, and how appropriate it was to be hanging when the Corcoran hosted one of Obama’s inauguration parties!” Brian Clamp was dazzled by Hiroshi Sugimoto’s 7 Days / 7 Nights at Gagosian Gallery in Chelsea, observing, “It was just as much about the installation and the experience as it was about the artwork.” The William Kentridge show at SFMOMA was Catherine Edelman’s highlight of the year. Rick Wester was especially moved by the photographs of LaToya Ruby Frazier documenting herself and her family at New York’s Higher Pictures, while Sid and Michelle Monroe of Santa Fe selectedEddie Adams: Vietnam at the Umbrage Gallery in DUMBO. The International Center of Photography exhibition of another legendary American photographer, Richard Avedon, was the favorite of Etheleen Staley. Myoung Ho Lee’s Tree at Yossi Milo Gallery was the highlight for Darren Ching of Klompching Gallery.
