Great Photography on Great Covers

I love great editorial photography. I find it inspiring. Every year, the American Society of Magazine Editors puts together their collection of the year's best magazine covers. The connection between great covers and great photography is an obvious one—particularly when checking out a gallery of this year's nominees. I think editorial photography is where many groundbreaking trends and techniques find their start, and I think this collection proves exactly why. Check out the nominees, along with commentary from each magazine’s staff about the making of the covers, and then remember to return next year to vote for your favorite and enter for a chance to win prizes. By the way, it’s Harper’s Bazaar that won this year. Those Twilight vampires have huge cover cache.
