    Thanks

    2. Arno Rafael Minkkinen

    Nick Brandt (http://www.nickbrandt.com) is certainly worth checking out. His "On This Earth" series is simply astonishing. And he shoots film :heart:

    Arno Rafael Minkkinen, that has to be a Finn... No other language has names like that.

    Thank you, Mr. Alpha for the link. I for one really appreciate it, and I find that person's work to be amazing. I know almost no professional photographer's names, so this thread is really interesting to me.

    One of my favorite photos was by a guy named Hipployte Bayard. He took a photo in the 1830s (yes, 1830) of himself as a drowned man, which I really like. Plus, I hear he was the first person to stage a photograph. IMO he deserves major credit for that! :)

    I too like Michael Kenna a lot. I think his compositions are simple but yet very effective (despite horizons in the middle of the frames in many of his landscapes :sexywink:). Moreover, he shoots film and print his pictures himself with great skills.
