    Steve.
    Frank Meadow Sutcliffe was perhaps the English version of Atget. Your post reminded me of his beautiful compositions.

    Kenny Rogers is a published photographer? I had no idea. Is he any good?

    Hmm, assuming the conversation is going to skew photographic, I think I'd want to focus on people with ideas, and also avoid people with well-known unswerving opinions. For instance, for all his many virtues, I don't know that AA would be a very desirable photographic conversationalist---his writing, at least, reads to me like someone who lives in a mode of "arrive at the right solution first, then articulate it and be done". On the other hand, Robert Capa's writing suggests that he must have been a hell of a raconteur, so even though I'm not sure he was much for talking about photography (he seems more like the go-out-and-do-it type), I think I want him at the table for social reasons.

    OK: Capa, Weegee, Man Ray, and Werner Bischof; my great-grandfather Dick Millard, and one photographer of his choice. (Bischof is a bit of a leap in the dark; I like his work, its voice *seems* like someone I'd like personally, but I have no real idea of the personality behind the camera.)

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    To Ntenny,

    His coffee table book "Your Friends and Mine" published by Little. Brown and Company in 1987
    contains portraits of celebreties photographed in large format in both black nd white and color

    You will have to judge for yourself as to the quality of his work.

    Which photographers would be most likely to bring a good bottle of wine if invited?

    Outside of that consideration:

    Karsh
    Jeff Wall
    Diane Arbus

    I'd say William Eggleston, except he apparently isn't much of a conversationalist.

    Edward Weston
    Julia Margaret Cameron
    David Bailey

    I think Henri would be very quiet so I would put him next to Weegee, and I think Henri would enjoy having Man Ray at his side, and next to Brigitte Bardot. Beside Bardot would be Edward Weston, and at his side would be Karl Marx. Next to Karl would be none other than Imogene Cunningham, and then George Eastman. Beside George would be Ron Mowrey, who would sit next to Julia Child. Between Julia and myself would be Andre Kertesz.

    And and all my friends on APUG would be invited too, of course

    Hahah excellent! +1

    I would choose Capa, Brassai, Lewis Hine, Stieglitz, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and last seat is a toss up between Edward Curtis and Eugene Smith.

    We would chat about moments of their lives that in their own opinions stuck out the most to them, eureka moments, first hand stories about their adventures and travels, lifelong regrets, and how the afterlife is. And their opinions on the state of photography today. Then we all get drunk LOL

    1.Brassai, French night photographer 1930s.

    2.O.W.Link, American night photographer of trains, 1950s

    3. E.O.Hoppe, British industrial/landscape photographer, 20s-40s.

    4. Andrew J. Sullivan, American photograher Civil War, Western railroads 1860s-1870s

    5. Edouard Baldus, French photographer of landscapes, architecture, railroads 1840s to 1860s.

    6. Fox Talbot, British. I'd like to ask him if photography turned out anywhere near what he predicted.


    I love night photography and am also into historical cameras. I also photo a lot of trains. I could have added Richard Steinheimer, Mel Patrick, and Shaunessey--all of whom are more modern night time railroad photographers. I actually have had lunch with David Plowden in recent years, twice.
