Best Photographer

TIE: Alan Pogue, Todd Wolfson

Alan Pogue is Austin's favorite photographer. No, wait ... Todd Wolfson is. It's a candy mint. No, dammit, it's a breath mint. Though distinctly different – Pogue is most recently known for his courageous and unflinching look at our country's forays in Iraq, and Wolfson's sensual saturations of hard color and contrast are helping make national names for some of Austin's most talented musicians and models – they each have an innate ability to capture the essence of their subjects. These images are stunning contributions to the visual history of Austin's arts, entertainment, politics, and life, and for this, these two men are honored.
