Christopher Murphy nominated photographer Jeremy Liebman:
Jeremy has an unusual eye. He took a photo of a bathroom vanity mirror and made it unusually compelling. I would have never seen the potential. This is what I find so inspiring about Jeremy's work. He finds the eccentricities just beneath the surface of his subject and exposes them, sometimes subtly, sometimes to grand effect. His keen perception of what is essential to whatever he is shooting, be it a Tokyo skyscraper, another artist, or a screaming red stiletto shoe, ensures that his photos are never merely precious or quirky, but instead provocatively off-kilter and engaging. And, not for nothing, his photos are, formally speaking, beautifully shot and composed, to boot.
