Two interesting threads today about favourite public art and favourite paintings.

Any favourite photographers?

I love the work of the great American landscape photographers, early masters like Lartigue and Atget, and classics like Bill Brandt and Cartier-Bresson. But for 40 years I've been hooked on the work of John Blakemore who creates beautiful images out of nearly nothing.

Ralph Gibson - for his great work with textures and grain in abstract B&W pics.

Elliott Erwitt for his use of humor in street photography.

William Eugen Smith, Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, and Sebastiao Salgado for their documentary work.

Ansel Adams for his pioneer work in B&W landscape photography.

Anton Corbijn for his musician's portraits, and his use of lith printing.
