100 most influential photographers

copyright, Professional Photographer Magazine.

I’m a sucker for a list. Especially one that comments on the most influential photographers of all time. You can see the full PP list here. I’d love to hear what you think. Any glaring omissions? People too high or low? I’d also be willing to guess lighting on any of these photographers (many of whom are already on the pages of GTL), so if you have a fave or two, send them my way.

    Unbalanced on the American side of the Ocean, in my opinion. Cartier-Bresson 6th? Avedon 1st? Robert Capa 95th? Come on. And where is Watson in the list? And where’s me :p?

    At the experience of sounding uninformed I haven’t even heard of at least 75% of these photographers before.

    Are many of them really that obscure or do I need to be reeducated?

    I hope Steven Meisel made it…
