Who are your favorite Photographers?

I realized I don't know too many modern or historical photographers...
Who are your favorite photographers?

Historical: I like Edward Weston...

Modern: Zosia Zija
(I don't think she's very well-known....yet, but I really like her work.)

Ansel Adams would be my favorite. John Shaw is also exceptional.

Ansel Adams. Saw some of his work on display at the Columbus (OH) Museum of Art back in 1985. Just breathtaking.

Modern photogs- Robert Farber, Gregg Gorman, Annie Lebowitz, and several unknowns in the portrait and fashion industries.

Besides some of those already mentioned, Alfred Stieglitz, and in particular his photographs from New York around 1900-1910. It is a humbling experience to see photographs not only of such genius but of such technical quality coming from the early days of the 20th century.

Joel Peter Witkin.

Distrubing but beautiful.

A tribute to a genius.

Tom Till from Utah.

If you're ever in Moab, check out his studio on main street.

First time I ever spent some "serious" money on a picture.

Goes without saying that Adams has to be mentioned.
