This is a blog in love with photographers. Scroll down aCurator's page and you'll see one photographer's name after another in bold, black letters with sharp, seductive images in between. These posts often link to glorious, full-screen features -- free of surrounding navigation bars and text -- on the main aCurator.com site. ("Frustration with a lack of full-screen images led me to publish aCurator," explains founder and editor, Julie Grahame.) But the signature strength of the aCurator blog is, in fact, suggested by its name. Grahame is a curator with a flawless eye and, in her assessment of the work she presents, an immediately trustworthy, no-frills tone. ("Miriam O'Connor is my latest crush," she writes, introducing one young photographer's pictures. "Her [series] 'Attention Seekers' filled me with joy; it's refreshing, smart and humorous.") aCurator's triumph is a clarity of purpose wedded to a keen intelligence, and a willingness to let its stunning photographs largely speak for themselves.
