The 55

In July 2012, Digital Camera World published a list called:

In the eyes of many observers, this list was a seriously flawed attempt to provide a serious examination of this subject. A mostly male only list, celebrating recent activity at the exclusion of many important photographers from photography's rich & diverse past.

In direct response to the Digital Camera World review, I began work on compiling my own list of those individuals I considered important photographers.

The essays below are my own attempt to place these photographers into a (largely personal) critical & historical perspective.
