Famous Photographers and their Work
By "famous" I mean photographers that I've always liked most of my live. When I was young I liked a lot of fashion photographers like Irving Penn and Richard Avedon, but now, the fashion photographers seem superficial besides what I call the plein aire photographers like Kertész, Adams, Bresson, or Lartique, or the photo journalists like Weege or Robert Capa.

Berenice Abbott in 1921, photographed by Man Ray. It was under his tutelage that she became a photographer. Peggy Guggenheim and Robert McAlmon helped finance her first studio.
Jack Kerouac, New York City, 1953. By Elliott Erwitt. I put the photo here instead of under literary because I'm more interested in the photo than the subject.
