    John Blakemore, Fay Godwin, Don McCullin, and Photographer/Sculptor Andy Goldsworthy (truly a great visionary) are inspirational to me.

    For me it changes, I started off 20+ years ago liking the work of Bill Brandt, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Don McCullin and Andre Kertesz.
    Then I picked up a picture book of the work of Brassaï who I feel is my current favourite.
    His shots of Paris and its nightlife are pretty much definitive on the subject, and his portraits of the great artists inspire me.

    Can I recommend this:
    http://www.amazon.com/Brassai-Tasche...8779981&sr=8-1

    It'll be the best $10 you ever spend...

    Thanks.

    $26 for a brand new copy of "The Americans" is a nice price too...although it is "rescanned" and slightly edited from the original...

    One of these (1978 edition) came in at my work (I photograph for an estate liquidation company) and they were about to let me have it, but I was honest and told them they should EBay it instead...oh wells. I may just get this new edition until I can afford one of the old ones.

    Walker Evans and the photographer who was most influenced by him -- Robert Frank. Also the 8x10 color by Joel Sternfeld.

    Minor White, Brett Weston, Atget - and a few others. I am also very inspired by some of the work that is displayed here at APUG. I find that a lot of the people that still shoot film really think about what their materials and choices a lot. Perhaps that adds something to the approach to the art as well? I don't know and I can't tell, but several photographers here inspire me, sometimes more so than the greats of now and past.
