    If Adams and Weston were in their 20s now, their experiences, perspective and background would be very different, and their photography would reflect that.

    It might be harder for them to be recognized, due to the amount of photography that is now available, but if their attitudes and dedication and talents were/are the same, their photography would reflect that.

    Their status as icons is at least partly a result of happenstance - they came along when the world was ready for them - but IMHO the quality of their dedication and vision would no doubt have brought rise to wonderful work in any event, assuming that circumstances did not conspire to prevent them from participating.

    I believe that both would have been a success today. Of course, had they not set the standards and basis for what was to come, who would have? Would photography be as we know it? Would others have taken their place? Depending on how photography progressed without them, would have dictated where they would have headed and what they would have photographed. What comes to mind, and perhaps this is taking things a bit far, but what would have Leonardo da Vinci be doing today or Beethoven have composed in todays world had they not lived in their own times?
