I was going through one of my Andre Kertesz books and began to think about all the fabulous phtographers who have passed in the last several years. Kertesz, Avedon, Penn, Bravo, Capa, Eisenstadt, Bresson are the ones that come quickly to mind.
Who is still out there, and who are the ones that you consider will be thought of in the same category as the above and the others greats (Weston, Strand, Evans, Adams, E. Smith etc).
Two that come to mind that might enter the pantheon (IMHO) are Ralph Gibson and Salgado. Possibly Michael Kenna. I think their work has tremendous impact beyond beauty and documentation.
I would like to hear others opinions and candidates.
