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.

"Havana Citizen / Citizen in Downtown Havana," Walker Evans, 1933. Gelatin silver print. | "Except for certain morning shopping hours, Havana is still a largely male city. The tide of pedestrians along narrow Obispo Street...nearly all are men in white linen, now and then a bright tie under a dark chin shaded by a straw hat tilted effectively." -Carleton Beal
