Editor’s Note: This week we celebrate our blog’s first anniversary! It has been an incredible and wonderful first year for atlas. We have been so honored and privileged every week to showcase the beautiful works of so many talented emerging and established photographers from around the world. Every single photographer whom we interviewed this past year — from Canada to South Africa — has inspired us with their passion, their stories, their hard work, and of course, their gorgeous artistry. We thank all of our featured photographers and more importantly, we thank you, our readers, for making atlas’ first year a big success!
During the week, we are going to celebrate our first year by looking back at many of the beautiful and spectacular images that have graced these pages as well as give well-deserved shout-outs to some special folks who have made this blog a reality. We welcome any and all of your suggestions and comments on what you would like to see as we head into our second year so do not be shy to send a note on our Comments page. As always, thanks for all your good vibes and support and get ready for another year of intriguing interviews and breathtaking photography by some of the best and talented photographers in the field. A birthday toast to atlas!
