    Hey all,

    I don't mean to have this as my first post and I do plan to get more involved but right now I need some help for a photo class assignment for school.

    Basically I need to write a paper about 3 different (well known/famous I guess) photographers that all share a common theme and show some examples of their work. I was wondering if anyone knows of any? If you know a link to a website showing their work and a little bio about themselves then that would be great.


    Thanks in advance,
    Brandon

    I'd suggest Robert Capa, James Nachtwey, and Gilles Peress. Googling their names should uncover a wealth of information about these photographers.

    You can try 3 from the same family (all 3 of them awesome)

    Edward Weston, Brett Weston, Cole Weston

    If you prefer portraiture, try:

    Annie Liebovitz
    Arnold Newman
    Irving Penn

    Thanks for the replies guys, I really appreciate it.

    Well this is for a photo history class. I went over the assignment sheet again and basically I have to write about 3 different photographers and pic a photograph from each of them and mostly write about the background info on the photo and now the 3 photographs relate in style.

    But the more important thing is how the the photograhers influenced each other.Thats the part that is probably gonna be most difficult. I guess that means I have to find 3 photographers that were inspired by the previous one. Anyone got any ideas?

    Maybe the 3 phothgraphers from the same family?

    It would be hard to imagine that the Westons did not influence each other!

    Just work backwards. Find a contemporary artists (Anne Leibowitz is a good choice), research her and her influences, and then pick one of them and research their influences. Viola. Profit.
