Best Photographer: Herb Ascherman

If modern gadgets have made everyone a photographer, they have also accentuated the artistry of Cleveland’s Herbert Ascherman Jr. A black-and-white portraiture specialist whose career has spanned four decades, Ascherman favors platinum printing, the 140-year-old process by which a negative of the image is placed on platinum-coated paper and exposed to ultraviolet light. You don’t find that at the Walgreens photo lab, and talents like Ascherman are equally rare.
