Nikon selected Carmel Valley photographer Ed Masterson to be featured in the summer edition of Nikon World, an honor bestowed to only 12 photographers annually. Nikon selects the 12 photographers from thousands worldwide based on their creativity and distinctive approach to the photographic arts.
Nikon was first introduced to Masterson's work through "Visions," a collection of Masterson's fine art photography. The book captures the unexpected beauty in everyday, mundane objects such as a fire hydrant or an asphalt patch. It was this unconventional approach to subject matter and mood that Nikon recognized.
As a commercial photographer and designer for more than 30 years, Masterson had not yet promoted his personal work until this year.
