    Oh, I thought the question was "which photographers LIKE beer." Never mind.

    Well, if a photographer could be like a beer, I would want to be like Guinness Stout.

    Well, I am with Clay on wanting to be a Guinness Stout.

    In terms of photographers, I would prefer to list those whose work I don't understand. Many people appreciate the work of these photographers, I don't. Diane Arbus, Sally Mann and Steiglitz, so far, are on my list. You could also add Nan Goldin, Cindy Sherman, Jock Sturges, Robert Frank, Eikoe Hosoh, Lee Freilander , Lewis Baltz and any current photographer who thinks that 8 x 10 is measured in feet.

    Nothing wrong with these folks at all. I just don't understand their photographs.

    I'm baffled by the popularity of:

    William Wagman (sic)
    Anne Geddes
    Sean Kernan
    Bruce Barnbaum

    This is one thread where I would have loved to read M. Scarpitti's views.

    That's Ornello Pederzoni III to you, buster!

    So far, I have to say I pretty much agree with the aggregate list so far. Which begins to show that APUGers might just be in some agreement on matters of taste. (And of course, our taste is correct!! ) My peeve is with photographers whose work is famous JUST because they take pictures of famous people. How many coffee table books are lining bookstore shelves right now, with Madonna's pictures of Richard Gere, or some such nonsense. THAT stuff is the Skunkener Pilsner of photography!

    I am pretty much in agreement with the majority of names already mentioned, but for me Les McLean comment exactly fits Diane Arbus in my opinion. I have met her, attended her shows, and still came away saying "What is she trying to say or do" Sorry Arbus lovers, but I dislike spinache too.

    I beleave there are far more frauds out there than there are super heros,
    I think maybe I have had a bit more time to think about such things than
    others may have and that is my opinion. One of my ex Bosses for instance was the most decorated member in the history of the PPofA, and he truly did not know an f stop from a door stop. All of his prints were done by a very capable DR technician. He only was able to earn a bit over 500,000
    dollars a year, sit in a directors chair and shout at us.
