They sent us stunners from every genre; some captivating and challenging, others just plain cool. Many offer lessons in how readily luck comes to the well prepared; each one shows the myriad ways photography connects people— shooters, subjects, and viewers alike. Here’s our final cut.

Photo by © Claire OringMany photographers would see Claire Oring’s early career as something of a fairy tale. She had been out of school for about six weeks—having taken one photography class while earning her bachelor’s degree in 3-D animation from Otis College of Art and Design—when she landed an assignment to create a travel diary across Israel and the Czech Republic for the Urban Outfitters blog. In the two years since, this Los Angeles–based pro, now 24, has continued to photo-blog for UO and begun to sell canvas art prints in its stores. read moreDreams Realized show less

Geneva-based Steeve Iuncker set himself a personal project that would send him traveling the world. The photographer, who is a member of Agence VU, is capturing urban “mosts”—the richest city, the most populated, the most violent. His first destination: the coldest. Yakutsk, in northern Russia, experiences punishing daily winter temperatures averaging -40 degrees Fahrenheit. During the day, heavy fog covers the town and very little light gets through, giving Yakutsk a surrealistic aura of ice, mist, and shadows. read moreParting Shot: The Most Frigid City on Earth show less

Photo by © Lisa S. JohnsonFor 17 years, Lisa S. Johnson has been pursuing the world’s biggest guitar heroes — or rather, their favorite axes. An avid music fan, Johnson has built her “Guitar Art Project” with dogged zeal, accessing and photographing the instruments of living legends such as Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Bonnie Raitt and Keith Richards, as well as lesser-known “musician’s musicians” like Richard Thompson, Steve Morse, Eric Johnson and Nancy Wilson. read moreBooks of the Year: Lisa S.

Photo by © Anton CorbijnAnton Corbijn has been making portraits of famous artists for five decades. He’s directed feature films and dozens of music videos, but he is likely best known for his extremely personal rock and roll portraits. Cutting his teeth shooting rock stars for the New Musical Express in the 70s, he evolved to provide creative direction for the likes of U2 and Depeche Mode, building relationships over many years that are still fruitful to this day—his video for Depeche Mode’s “Should Be Higher” was released earlier this year. read moreBooks of the Year: Anton Corbijn, Waits/Corbjin show less
