While we are on the subject of great photography let's celebrate one of Robert Erdmann's favourite references; Sarah Moon. A great photographer in every sense Moon is viewed as a founder of feminist photography - after being the first woman to shoot the famous Pirelli calendar in 1972. Joyce Tenneson in 1989 and Annie Leibovitz in 2000 were the others.
