Maybe you guys are already very familiar with Annie Leibovitz's portrait of Louise Bourgeois, but I happened upon it recently and was really blown away by its depth. I'm usually inclined to blow her off as the photographer of the stars, but these sorts of images remind me how good she really is.

It relates so perfectly to her work. If you're not familiar with it, you should look it up. Its absolulty stunning. Here's the portrait:

I have always been interested in relationship between images and words. If anyone has a similar interest I suggest to look at this work from Guillermo Labarca : There is no Beauty without words.

This is a really cool series of color photographs taken in Russia between 1909 and 1912. Its a neat portal into a world I imagine only in Black and White.

Me too! That is a really beautiful series. I loved every frame. They all have a really poetic and almost cerebral feel to them. Very nice. Thanks so much.

Brad Trent's work is phenomenal. I love the "Lighting Tests" series. I think they're most powerful viewed together. The inclusion of the assistant in each one adds something really cool to the images. Definitely bookmarked the website. Thanks!

Wow. Those are really, really amazing photographs. I can't even begin to articulate how much I enjoyed those. The opening image on the richardavedon.com site with the woman and elephants is really mind blowing. His fashion work is also thoroughly incredible. Really, all of it is thoroughly incredible

I am indeed 16, and desperately trying to get a grasp on the last 100 or so years of photography. I'm going through a Lartigue and Atget phase right now, though I might have to add Avedon to the list now, too. Seeing all of this amazing work really fuels my passion. And for that, I thank you.

I look forward to reading the whole Assisting Avedon story. He seems like a nice guy, and an even better photographer. An excellent combination.

PKR, this thread is a great resource. Thank to you for starting it, and for keeping it going along with a few other key members. Have been following along..

It has images such as THIS (though that is from the China Series).

I've had the Burn Magazine window open for a week now, meaning to take a deeper look..

Just received a book of Josef Koudelka's work last week.

George Eastman

“Eastman was reticent and shunned publicity. It seems paradoxical that the man whose name is synonymous with photography should have fewer photographs taken of him than many other outstanding leaders of his time. He could walk down the main street of Rochester without being recognized”. From the link below.

On the Avedon site, there is a great article that Richard wrote on Lartigue ( a favorite of mine.) It really captures the spirit of an excellent photographer. Its a fun and quite interesting read. I can't seem to link to it, so I'll attach JPEGs of the text.

Edit: It looks like the JPEGs are really small. If you download them, they're plenty readable.

Edit 2: Actually, they're not. Screw it. If you still want to read it, go to richardavedon.com and then its under the "Conversations" section.

I just downloaded and printed the pdf from the avedon site about Lartigue. I'll read later, just gave a quick look and the diary lines are something new to me. Interesting, thanks for the link

I've been working through the 5 technological founders you listed above my prior post. All very interesting, thank you. I live around 10 minutes away from the HRC in Austin where the first photograph is often displayed. I was around 10 when I first saw it and thats when I really began to understand and appreciate the technical challenge of capturing light. Thanks for sharing those!

And Gary Winogrand is wonderful, too. I have a number of books with his work. I always enjoy them.

I love the technical side of just about anything, and actually the combination the technical and the creative was one of the chief appeals of photography to me. So, yes, please keep the science-y stuff coming.

Do you work in the photo industry? You seem to have very interesting connections and are certainly knowledgable enough to be.

Thanks for all the sensor and film links. The foveon sensor has always interested me, but it seems to have really struggled to make any ground as far as market share goes. Only Sigma uses them in their relatively unpopular cameras, no?

Its must be neat to work as a photographer. I'd consider it, but I fear that if one of my passions also becomes my profession, I might loose interest as the pressure to produce increases. I'm a ways off from having to make that decision, though.

Thanks for that link. I really enjoyed those, though I'll have to start contributing here a little more. I feel a little greedy.

MickH:

Those are wonderful, aswell. Thanks a lot.

Here is a photographer I recently found. His style is maybe a little disaffected, but I really like the overall effect. Its certainly a departure from the images shown here so far. Take a look, if you'd like.
