    Tremendous difference.
    Good point - I consider Christopher Burkett probably the greatest Ilfochrome printer around, although not one of the greats in terms of photography.

    Sorry thats five and I am not a fan of admiring those who I don't know -- otherwise how do I know they're great. Sometimes there is a tendency to replace big/popular/successful with great. These folks I know and I think they are great.

    Oddly, if you had asked about painters I would have listed those who were big/popular/successful -- all except Max Beckmen.

    Mathew Brady -- The birth of photojournalism
    Edward S Curtis -- Classical composition
    Jacques-Henri Lartigue -- Photography as whimsical art
    Dorthea Lang -- Social Commentary as art

    Unfair! Only 4?

    Henri Cartier-Bresson -- Distillation of the experience to a moment

    Atget
    Cartier-Bresson

    Ok, glove down, I'm right and you're wrong. What is your rationale?

    I was going to jump in here with enough witty palaver to surely earn the ire of Mr. Callow but, I will try to stay on topic. John, isn't it the work one ought to consider and not the biography. This is certainly true of many writers I admire. I love to read them, but I certainly wouldn't want to live with, or like them.
    Celac.

    Whoever you want (but not just printers) - bear in mind a photographer is a person who takes a photograph. Some print their own work, others don't. It really matters little either way.
