    "There is very limited audience for the arty stuff, and it is largely comprised of other arty types, most of whom have no money to spend because no one is buying their stuff either. More people bring their emotions to an image than bring their intellect. The former are the folks who have checkbooks because they are engineers, accountants, and bankers—and generally they are engineers, accountants and bankers because they are not artists."

    Taking pictures is easy. Making photographs is hard.

    Avedon at #1? Adams at #23? While I don't have a problem with Adams not being #1, I'd surely put him in the top 10. Further proof that this is just one person's (or one editorial team's) fantasy and far from definitive. Roger Fenton deserves credit for inventing war photography, but Mathew Brady and Alexander Gardner brought it to the world's view. And you have to love this comment about Patrick Demarchelier:

    Where Testino brings glamour to fashion, Demarchelier brings sophistication and understated glamour to all of his images.

    So somehow Demarchelier's glamour is different from Testino's glamour? I guess his is more "understated" than Testino's, but given we're talking about fashion photography, that's hair-splitting at best.

    Did I miss David Douglas Duncan, or is he number 101?

    Poor Brian Duffy died in 2010, but is listed as alive. Got to meet and visit his studio in 1976 three years before he gave up photography.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    There are some glaring omissions, but that happens when you compile a list with an arbitrary number. Still, may influential people on there.

    I'm Happy. Winogrand is on there, so is Shore and Sherman...and Ansell is not number 1 (ohhhh, controversy. Quickly, let me find my flame suit). Yep, I'm happy
