    Faves ?

    Yesterday, I was asked who were my Top Ten Favorite Photographers of all time. After giving it some thought, this is the list I came up with:

    01) George H. Seeley
    02) Edward Steichen
    03) Anne Brigman
    04) Jan Groover
    05) Francesca Woodman
    06) Robert Maxwell
    07) Emil Schildt
    08) Jan Saudek
    09) Sheila Metzner
    10) Edward Weston

    Uhh, probably in that order too. At least this evening...

    Who's on your Top Ten list?
