On your phone right now: a treasure trove of contemporary photojournalism. Its documentation of the sights, sounds and mating habits of the early 21st century will one day be invaluable. The Smithsonian will want them. A gallery will hang them. Collectors will bid on them. A 22nd-century Ken Burns will zoom in on them, pan across them and put a really cool Instagram tint on them.  (Probably Kelvin.)

In the meantime, the best investments in contemporary photography lie elsewhere. So herein, we’ve assembled a gallery of some lensmen and women who are making waves in the art world worthy of your consideration.

Chris LaMorte’s favorite lapel: peak. Favorite bulldog: French. Can you offer him a glass of champagne: yes. Often mistaken for: Zach Galifianakis. Often mistakes himself for: Bradley Cooper.
