These Afghanistan photos are awesome without a doubt. And although what I saw was done with an iPhone, I'm sure for this thread nobody is complaining that it is all Leica. And I think that project is awesome.

But the list is about B&W photographers. And these super photos are color. Or am I missing something?

Okay Okay, don't get mad at me, I began by saying I think it is GREAT photography. I somehow missed all the good B&W stuff

So I'll add him to the list (which I really should update one of these days). So much to do.

Bert Hardy and Don McCullin. There's probably a few more but these two always come to mind first

Sometimes I feel stupid. Bert Hardy. Pffff, now there's some photography. Never seen anything by him, now hooked.

"It never seemed like work," said Bert Hardy. "Photography was always good fun."

I'll have to check Manos and Crie. The others, well ... I think they were on about the first ten (if not five) positions of the list.

Keep smiling.

Ah, more and more, keep it coming. I'm sure it will take some time before someone says "we're done, no more to be found"

I don't really look at photographers' work all that much. So much of it is the same. I do like Willi Ronis and Salgado, but I don't consider anyone's work an 'inspiration' as such. I'm past that stage in life.

Default AW: Inspirational Photographers- B&W

Didn't see him on the (last?) list yet, and for me one of those who inspire well beyond their photographs, through craft and life (or what's known about it): Kenro Izu
