Fantastic site. Here a review: http://www.bandwmag.com/articles/machiel-botman-gazing-within

 

“The understanding of life comes after the images have been taken, when they have come to rest,” he explains. “Many times to take a photograph is a violent action; you slice an instant from its past and future. You need time to let that become meaningful, to understand what you are really looking at, and to understand how that image can become important within you. Maybe it connects to what you have done before. Maybe it shows you something you never realized.”

 

Nazraeli Press did one of his books

My earliest inspirations were Magnum photographers especially Bresson and Salgado, I know they've been mentioned but they are still important to me, I lost touch with following and reading about other photographers over my press years, there never seemed to be enough time, but one of my earliest inspirations in to sport photography was the amazing black and white work of UK photographer Eamonn Mccabe.

On occasion during my commercial work I get to shoot some fashion. One of my favourite photographers as far as fashion portraiture goes is Peter Lindbergh, his use of controlled natural light and outdoor studios has always amazed me.

Hi,

 

I don't know if these names have been quoted. I always love the work of Sabine Weiss https://sabineweissphotographe.com/portfolio.html

 

When I was a boy I went to an exibition of Leonard Misonne. Belgian photographer from Charleroi area. First half of the 20th Century. It still haunts me today: http://monovisions.com/leonard-misonne-biography-pictorial-photographer/

OK I am not that old

When I began my 1O year stint as a traveling wet plate photographer, I studied many early artists, who made images with a variety of processes.   The Greatest Work I found was that of Hill and Adamson, using the Calotype Process (salted paper negatives) during the 1840’s.  These images Still strikingly convey emotions and feeling.  There were times I posed Civil War period civilian reenactors in similar pose.

I hadn't heard of Dickey Chapelle before today - a woman who became a war photographer active from the Pacific campaign in WW2, through Korea, Algeria, Cuba and finally had her luck run out in Vietnam in 1965. A documentary about her is on YouTube:
