    There's some people I've really been looking to find, and I'll try to describe them as much as I can, if anyone knows and can help, it would be awesome!

    - A woman who used an 8x10 camera with a 4x5 lens (for the vignetting, I guess) and took pictures of her children and stuff. Most (I think all) were black and white. They were all taken at her home, etc.

    - A guy who set up elaborate sets and lighting (like for movies and TV shows) for pictures. I also remember a photograph where he went to a town and asked the people in charge or what-have-you, what buildings he could burn down for pictures.

    - A guy who took a series of pictures of his pornography-obsessed father, resulting in pictures of his dad watching porn on TV or reading Playboys. I thought those were hilarious.

    I think that's all. Thanks!

    Sally Mann?

    Gregory Crewdson?

    This last one, I'm not sure, and I don't think I want to know it, haha.
    Did you see these on "The Genius of Photography" by any chance? Mann and Crewdson were both on there. If so, the last one might be Richard Billingham or Larry Sultan. Both took pictures of their fathers, but it didn't have to do anything with Playboy as I remember.
     
  3. David LaChapelle?
