Greats (no street content)

Forget what books or museums tell you about who’s a great photographer. If you go to a gallery and you don’t connect with the stuff, dig deeper. Most acclaimed photographers of the 20th century are great historically, meaning, they created something substantial and new for their time, in a medium that was developing (pun) at a faster rate than many of them could keep pace with, and in order to appreciate their images, it helps to keep this history in mind. Then again, if you’ve schooled yourself and you still think it sucks, that’s fine. Look hard. Find your own favorites, champ.
