DeviantART is one of the most popular online art sites. As dA grows each day, more and more new members register, which means more and more art is being submitted each day; with about 29,387,971 deviations to date. One of the most popular submission categories is photography. Within the Art Photography category, there are 12 subcategories, those containing even more subcategories. With all of these groups there are many photos that fall in between the cracks at this massive place we call DevianART. A selected party of 20 deviants and I have come together to show you photos that have gone fairly unnoticed from this passing year. These 16 categories range from Architecture to Fetish and show superb unknown works of 2006.
