David Bailey? Who's he? Big smile Lionel.....

LOL, I remember the adverts.
I worked in retail when the ads were big on TV. If I had a pound for every customer who said..."I'm no David Bailey" when asked what type of camera they were after I'd be very rich!
Yep, Karsh was good. I went to an exhibition of his work at the Barbican ages ago (I think I went through all this in a different topic the other day) and was amazed at the sharpness of his portraits even when blown up to several feet. He used a large-format camera and the detail isn't particularly flattering at that size, though. Best to stand a few feet back unless you are interested in "famous skin disorders of the 20th century".
For those around at the time (and those descended from them) the phrase Who do you think you are, David Bailey? is still meaningful. :0)
Mind you I would never be able to remember what they were actually advertising. lol
"If I had a pound for everyone who joined E2 I'd be very rich."
Take a look at Scott Mutter's work for something a little different and thought provoking.
don't know that many, but Henri Cartier-Bresson's stuff was nice and I can look at Ansel Adam's Yosemite shots for hours.
I spend far more time taking photos and on this forum these days, don't really look at other peoples stuff as much as I should.
I've more favourite painters than photographers, but of the latter... Brassai... for making the darkness glow.
Don't really know any. But I do enjoy gritty war photography so if you know any then let me know so I can google them.
Don McCullin. Robert Capa.
How about Don McCullin
There are quite a few websites if you search by his name
Roger Fenton if you want to go back as far as the Crimean War.
Its a toss up between, myself or that guy who used to be in this forum, he went by the name of Flashman.
