Watch This: Winning Images from the 2010 New York Photo Awards

nypa.jpgThis year saw the third triumphant incarnation of the New York Photo Festival, with exhibitions curated by Vince Aletti, Erik Kessels, Fred Ritchin, and Lou Reed. Among the highlights of the burgeoning event (along with a picture-perfect identity by Pentagram) is the announcement of the winners of the New York Photo Awards, which are decided by an eagle-eyed jury chaired by festival co-founder Daniel Power, who you may also know as the fearless leader of powerHouse Books. For those who missed this year’s awards gala, the organizers have created the below video featuring the winners and honorable mentions in all twelve categories. In just over ten minutes, you’ll see images spanning editorial, fine art, social documentary, and advertising by established snappers including Nadav Kander and Felix Streuli along with outstanding student work, all set to a rather haunting soundtrack.
