    Famous Photographers

    Hey guys, I was wondering, I have to do a 5 minute presentation on any photographer in the world. Since it is 5 full minutes, I do have to have a lot of information on the person, from their biography to their technique to showing examples of their work. I have no idea who to choose, I don't even have a favorite photographer. I just came across Henri Cartier-Bresson from anotehr article on street photography. Any suggestions?

    Second time you share insane.. I loved the site/music mix.
    I dont know about the photography.. just how much of it is real?!
    I also love that nature/human integration... amazing composition

    Also, i looked up the two photographers mentioned above, i was not impressed. My hero photographer(believe it or not) is Phil Holland.. and Michael Muller

    I adore Ansel Adams. That sounds so cliché, but it is true. Also, Dorothea Lange (she did alot of depression photography)- sorta the photography equivalent of Steinbeck (I love him too).

    Thanks everyone for mentioning these photographers. I will be looking through them, they're pretty interesting.

    Through research for the past few days, I have come across one that stood out from the rest (really did). His name is Joel-Peter Witkon.

    Though it may be nasty, it would add a little shock value and an interesting debate on what people think of his photographs. What do you guys think?
