Atlantic City Weekly’s team of photographers captured some fascinating imagery spanning a wide gamut of subjects in 2011.
From kick-ass concerts like rock icons Jane’s Addiction and Alice Cooper (both having appeared at the House of Blues at Showboat), to the inaugural and ultra-successful Dave Matthews Band Caravan at Bader Field, to eclectic social gatherings like Slaughterfest, the Elephant Talk Indie Music Fest, the Valenzano Wine Fest, the Atlantic City Air Show and A.C. Boardwalk Rodeo — little escaped AC Weekly’s lenses.
There was also the eye-pleasing “Showboat’s Bombshells” babes calendar shoot (see behind-the-scenes video here) some stunning shots of stained-glass work by Polish artist Aleksandra Puzyn, a sneak peak at the inner construction site of Revel’s soon-to-be-open $2.4 billion mega-casino, unique performances like the A.C. Ballet’s rendition of Dracula and the Cirque du Soliel and Cirque Polynesian circuses, a thrilling NLCS clash between the Phillies and the Cardinals, and before-and-after shots of Hurricane Irene’s visit to the Jersey shore.

Surely concert-goers will be jumping around for this one.

When one looks back over the year and designates a “best 10” list, it isn’t really a “best” ten.
