    He has some cool stuff. It's not necessarily my thing, but for street photo, I have always like Henri Cartier Bresson. Just some thing that he was able to capture. The instructor I had does some nice work. Thought you might want to check him out.

    HCB is the first one who pops into mind for me. :thumbup:

    I'm also trying to think of a more modern one, but at the moment I'm drawing a blank... :x Hate it when that happens!

    Erwitt is one of the greats. See if you can find his pictures of dogs - he did a book.
    Another one to check is Brassai - but do be aware that he photographed French brothels and other nightlife in the 30's so he isn't exactly work safe.

    HCB, Erwitt, Eugene Smith, Ami Vitale... lots to list.

    I like most of them here, even though there aren't exclusively in to Street Photography.

    I really like Helen Lewitt's early b/w work of children on the streets. I didn't like so much when she moved to color.
