Hey guys - recently put together a short list of 6 Photographers.

Jill Greenberg - Self described manipulator has a very unique use of lighting and ill subject matter. Jill’s very prolific so you’ve probably seen her work - she’s shot everything from crying babies to Lebron James.


Boogie - The Serbian transplant gets unrivaled access into fascinating subcultures, shinning light onto subjects that most would never get to see. Documentary/photo journalistic feel.



Phillip Toledano - Concept driven work with underlying tones and meaning. Has a great ability to juxtapose subjects and tell a story. Ahh the double take!



Dave Hill - POP! Dave’s photos look like a mixture of animation and graphic overlay - very reminiscent of that comic book feel.


Gregory Crewdson - Highly composed, extremely high production value. Surreal.


Terry Richardson - Candid and stripped down. If Gregory Crewdson is an orchestra - Terry Richardson would be a soloist with an acoustic guitar.

Yeah. He's done a ton of dope stuff like that. Check some of his older NYC or his Brazil stuff. I think you'll like it.

What's really interesting is his applying that style campaigns he also did for nike.

It just seems that anyone can do Terry Richardson though; his stuff is so raw and gritty and harsh light that anybody could probably do it. I don't know, I mean, I like his stuff but at the same time, it seems a little overrated.

Truth.

I could take a picture of a penis in a girl's mouth and increase the lighting. No biggie.

LOL. I agree, its completely subjective and a matter of tastes. No denying that hype sells too especially with art. Cobrasnake is another "I feel I can do that" type of guy that seems to bring up the debate amongst the homies.

I've always been down with Robert Frank. He revolutionized urban and candid photography. In my opinnion, dude took some of the realest photographs to date. He forsure created the the style that guys like Boogie ran with. Im sure most of you guys are familiar with his work (I hope atleast) and if not, i urge you to check some of his stuff out. His book The Americans is a classic

no problem. I just browsed through the comments and thats all I saw. No direspect or anything. Photography is a very broad art form in my eyes.

Yes portrait is awesome but don't limit yourself to just portrait. Anyway glad to help

Thats a very troublesome photo but I bet the photographer did something to help afterwards

But this has to be most powerful/ tragic photo to me. This is after the US bombed Vietnam with napalm. Look at the soldiers doing nothing to help.

The photographer, Kevin Carter committed suicide due to depression after taking the photograph 3 months ago.
