The Guardian’s “My Best Shot”


Tim Walker - My Best Shot

Tim Walker - My Best Shot

The Guardian’s been publishing the weekly “My Best Shot” series for a couple years now. It’s a great little column in which photographers (often well-known) share what they feel is their best shot, and why they think it’s their best. A lot of gems in the archive, though there are a few that leave me scratching my head. Here are a few: Bob Adelman, Elliot Erwitt, Lise Sarfati, Nadav Kander, Thomas Struth, Thomas Joshua Cooper (an innocuous landscape that likely would’ve landed him in jail), Edward Burtynsky, Joseph Szabo, Tod Papageorge, Tim Walker, Steve McCurry (not the first image that comes to mind…), and many more. Be sure to click on the pictures being talked about…some are cropped very awkwardly.

Don’t just look at the “My Best Shot” series, though, the Guardian’s whole photography section will keep you busy for a long while.
