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.

Nazaré - Portugal 1955. Henri Cartier Bresson I don't think I've seen this one before. As ever, a masterful composition from the great man. However, he claimed that he rarely (even never), cropped his photos and mostly used a 50mm lens.
