    "Meyerowitz doesn't do anything that doesn't line his pocket."

    well- he risked his health and his freedom documenting the aftermath of the WTC for many weeks after 9/11 because of the absolute importance he saw in the work. He also spent a couple of hundred thousand or so of his own dollars on it before anyone else came up with anything to help out

    And produced some stunning work in the process that will be long remembered

    the difference between lets call it the Dykinga approach to colour and the Eggleston approach is an absolutely fundamental one.

    Although it is not quite as simple as this, the first essentially sees colour as a cosmetic element of the overall graphic composition of the photograph - it adorns and embellishes (you can see this on many what have been called "calendar" type shots - take away the colour and they work reasonably well in B&W) - that is the photographer basically ensures they "colour inside the lines" - the colour is contained and dominated by line. Such scenes are also often relatively easily described in words

    In the second approach, colour is itself the essence of the form, it is the substance of the photograph, not just the surface. The essence of an Eggleston or a Shore photograph isn't so easily reduced to description - in contrast with the first approach, the colour takes over where the words run out. It goes far beyond simply being coloured chiaroscuro

    You could sum it up by saying the former use colours whereas the latter uses colour

    I agree with about 50% of those mentioned but still regard "Shinzo Maeda" in the top three where colour is concerned, his technique and attention to detail are superb and his pictures just wonderful.

    I'd add Cole Weston to the list of color photographers whose work is worth the time.
