Willy Ronis, Eduard Boubat & Robert Doisneau


Certainly they're three of my favourites. I love the French humanist style. People focus too much on Doisneau's 'Kiss', he's got a huge body of excellent photography behind him. Boubat I came across by accident while speaking to another French photographer whose name I forget,

Also add Don McCullin, HCB, Salgado,

Marc Riboud; Renee Burri (especially his book, THE ITALIANS -- wonderful); Herbert List; Ferdinando Scianna (even his 'fashion reportage'!); early Constantine Manos (THE BOSTONIANS; GREEK PORTFOLIO); Nikos Economopulous (especially IN THE BALKANS); David Douglas Duncan (any and all of his Picasso pictures)... And the list goes on, as another has said...
