They forgot pretty much all photographers of the 19th century. No Fox Talbot (father of Positive Negative), No Daguerre, No Niepce, No William Henry Jackson (the true photographer of Yellowstone), no Rejlander (father of the composite). This list is a Joke and not a good one.
Well, Fox Talbot, Daguerre and Niepce kind of... invented photography. To say they influenced it would be to do them an injustice. Don't ya think?
