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,
