Photographers that inspire you (7 replies and 4 comments)
Was wondering what photographers inspire you in you're work.
I'll start by saying Josef Hoflehner is one of mine.
Richard Misrach, Todd Hido, William Eggleston, Saul Leiter.
Alex Webb. James Natchwey. Cartier Bresson.
I bought The Sufferings of Light based on your comments about Mr Webb,
- wonderful photographer
Trent Parke is my absolute favourite photographer, he's the only Australian member of Magnum Photos. I don't think there's any other member of Magnum Photos that is quite the master of light that he is.
I think this is one of his most famous photos, when first viewing it your mind will take a while to figure out what it is you're looking at.
I didn't know him, thank you his pictures are outstanding.
Cartier Bresson, Elliot Erwitt, Koudelka, Diane Arbus... god so many, i remember that my first love was Bresson anyway, i saw a retrospective in my home town i was like 16? and i was deeply in love with photography.
Bresson got me buy my first leica, the first one was the M8 which was an amazing camera, with it i learned every simple step with exposure, i know that was a camera with huge limitations but that ccd sensor was quite unique. then i sold the m8 for an M4, which i've used a lot then i sold the m4 because i needed money for my short movie (yes i'm that stupid).
