    Atget is missing and said to be the 'father of modern photography' and an influence on Walker Evans.
    The (younger) students I went to Uni with were heavily influenced by Gregory Crewdson.

    William Mortensen, Gordon Parks, as an Austrian I am missing Heinrich Kühn a pioneer of Autochrome photography. What is Rankin doing on this list. I love Fashion photography but the list has too much bias towards it. The nationality of some of the photographers has been mixed up as well.

    Any list that doesn't include Matthew Brady, EO Hoppe, and William Henry Jackson is bogus. My guess is who ever came up with the list doesn't really know much history.

    100 most influential of all time

    That's the thing with lists like this, they are heavily biased always in some way. I mean so many important and influential photographers were left out, but some like terry Richardson being on the list is just ridiculous. Besides all the ones mention by previous posters, how about Lewis hine? Or if more focused on fashion like this list is how about Lillian bassman? Flawed list, totally. And Capa being all the way down there, really?

    How can you possibly miss Atget from this list?

    Maybe APUG database Meister can take a web poll and make our own 100 list of most influential photographers? Or maybe we could make it positive and name our top 5?

    Let's try Dorothea Lange, Sally Mann, Margaret White, Matthew Brady.

    What about Daguerre?

    And for goodness sake, how could you forget George Eastmann, even if you are a Brit? Just the guy who put photography into the hands of every man, woman and child, no matter their position in life.

    Another one that I would suggest possibly should be on the list is Edward S. Curtis for his photo's of native Americans
