    Who are your favorite photographers? And what type of photographer are they? I'm interested in sharing names so that I can see the work of some of the best.

    Lately I have been fascinated with Lee friedlander's pics. One of my favorites is his self portait of him driving a truck.

    Witkin is one of my favourite photographers.
    But so too are:
    Les Krims
    John Blakemore
    Winston O. Link
    Duane Michals
    Jacob Riis
    Angus McBean
    Robert Mapplethorpe
    Lee Friedlander
    Walker Evans
    and at least another 100.

    Funny you should mention Les Krims, he was my teacher. Our styles are far from similar but his expertise and eye really helped. We often disagreed and sometimes argued subject matter but his teaching and guidance and style will always stay with me. I should see if he is still teaching would be nice to brush up.

    Your teacher? Wow! My envy knows no bounds. I actually communicated by post with Krims for a while in the early 90's. I was introduced to his work in the late 70's and I fell in love with his humour and head games.
