Hello all, hope everyone is doing well!
It came to my attention this week that October is photographer appreciation month, and before this month actually ends, I thought it might be nice to share with you some of my favourite photographers of all time who have inspired me to pursue my passion 🙂
Annie Leibovitz is a photographer of celebrities who has become a celebrity herself. At age 23 she became chief photographer for Rolling Stone magazine, where she worked from 1973 to 1983. She remains the best known photographer of her generation.
Gregory Crewdson is best known for his photographs, which feature elaborately staged, surreal tableaus of suburban life.
Dorothea Lange is renowned for her haunting photographs of migrant workers, farmers, and other who suffered through the Great Depression. Her pained “Migrant Mother” (1936) became the image that defined the era.
Ansel Adams was an iconic American photographer known for his grandiose black-and-white photographs of the American West. Carefully composed and technically precise, the artist’s picturesque images of Yosemite National Park are some of the most iconic works in the history of the medium.
Imogen Cunningham was an American photographer whose intimate portraits and floral still life’s are characterized by their evocative light and attention to detail.
Steve McCurry is an American editorial photographer responsible for some of the most iconic cultural journalism of our time.
Margaret Bourke-White was a landmark American photojournalist. Remembered as the first female war correspondent and the first foreign photographer permitted to document Soviet industry, she captured countless iconic images of 20th-century life, conflict, and the politicians at its centre.
Henri Cartier-Bresson was a French photographer and filmmaker known as a pioneer of street photography. His dramatic black-and-white works are among the most iconic images of the 20th century.
Hope everyone enjoys the rest of the week!
