    For somebody closer to W. Eugene Smith, Sebastiao Salgado roams a different street from the Meyerwitz/Winnogrand/Erwitt scene.

    How did you guys forget Lewis Hine?! check out "America & Lewis Hine"

    ISBN-10: 0893810177
    ISBN-13: 978-0893810177

    Amazing stuff, in the foreward they mention his setup in Ellis Island, a 5x7 view camera, rickety tripod, a flash pan and powder, zero retakes.

    Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    I think you need to check out www.in-public.com

    Most of the masters have been mentioned. I would also add to the list more modern photographers, such as Trent Parke and Nick Turpin

    Since I joined Facebook I've been admiring the work of Orville Robertson,
    from Astoria New York. And I also had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Robertson
    at The Center for Alternative Photography last month. I think this was the first
    time ever that two Jamaicans got together, and nobody got cut, or shot.
    I think, but I'm not 100% sure ...

    And My APUG Brother JohnMeadows, and I recently interviewed him for an
    upcoming episode of The Film Photography Forecast.

    I would look at:

    1) Lee Friedlander, my uncontested favorite. Subject matter for his street work is generally not people, specifically. It is often based on visual trickery, such as layering to block the subject. As such, his street work is really about perception and photography themselves.
    2) Willy Ronis, a master of strong and often graphic composition; far better than Cartier-Bresson in that regard, IMHO.
    3) Brassaï, for a different take on street photography. Beautiful night cityscape shots in addition to his great people shots.
    4) Weegee, obviously. Heavily stylistic, brash, usually humorous take on things.
    5) Clifford Coffin, for a street fashion photographer. Not true street photography, but one of the first to incorporate the street, and urban ruin and decay into his high-end fashion work, so worth mentioning in this discussion IMO.
    6) Walt Girdner, just for the sake of mentioning a personal and local connection. He was the department head where I went to school for years, and where I now work.

    A couple weeks ago I happened to see a print of the image of the dog bisected by the street(light?) pole; one of my favorites. And, every Photo 101 student has shot their own shadow. For me, Friedlander owns that.
