    Well, one of my first photography assignments is to just keep a visual diary....


    Yep. Pretty easy...

    So my question to you guys is - what sort of photographers "inspire" you?

    Or are there any photographers that you think I should look at? Any photos that you really like?


    My teacher said we can put whatever we like in our visual diary - as long as we like explanations as to why they are in there...

    Sooo.... no, i don't want you to find photos and give me explanations. I just don't know where to start looking for photographers and the like...

    Sooo I just wanna get an idea of who is out there....


    Sooo, tell me who you like..

    Henri Cartier-Bresson, Andreas Feininger, Lee Miller are three of my favourites. I've been enjoying Karl Lagerfeld as well recently.

    If you want something grittier, try Robert Mapplethorpe... not to everyone's taste however!

    From the past: Robert Frank, Eugene Smith, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Andre Kertesz
    Current: Teru Kuwayama, Keith Carter, Michael Ackerman

    Or Joel-Peter Witkin. He's a bit of a challenge. *shudder*
