    I hope this forum thread will become a place to find links to some of the world’s most inspirational black and white photographers.

    A few years ago I went to exhibition by Ansel Adams in Edinburgh; prior to this exhibition I did not know a great deal about his work, for me this was the start of my love of black and white landscapes. You can check out his work at www.anseladams.com

    Please post information and links to any inspirational black and white photographer whose work has inspired you. Please take note of the ePhotozine terms and conditions on posting links.

    Would have to agree that Ansel is the man in terms of landscapes. No-one else comes close in my opinion.

    Can't get the link to work on this generic fruit base thing but O Winston Link was the real true master of b&w print. The Internet is a poor medium for viewing them however

    Just having a put around the net, looking for books by or on David Burdeny and another superb photographers name popped up, have a search for Nick Brandt.

    Don McCullin Until you've stared at a real print of the shell-shocked GI, you'll not understand how powerful it is.

    Bailey. He led, others followed ............

    ............ including John Swannell, but he went on to develop a style of his own.

    Is it too late to say that some of the above links may contain nudity? Wink

    Doisneau's OK but Kertesz is better....

    I prefer Doisneau to Kertesz. He's more natural + I like the way he sees things.
    Another major inspiration is Henri Cartier Bresson

    Despit having over thirty years of photographic experience it was only a few years ago that I discovered Adams, now he is my inspiration in landscape photography as David Bailey is in portraiture. His work, particularly in black and white in the 1960's, is unsurpassed.
