A definition of "God" from the Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary:God-a person or thing of supreme value.

As stated before AA is a God to photograph. His value to the past, present, and future of photography is so large that it can't be quantitatively measured. There have been many great great photographers and there will be many many more great photographers to come--but none will have the influence and add to the knowledge base like AA did. IMO
