The greatest photographers as voted by you...

Helmut Newton - featuring Kylie Bax

We ran a poll here on BlackLOG and suffice to say many of you are extremely knowledgable about what makes a great photographer. We asked who was the greatest fashion photographer of all time? Helmut Newton came in at number 1 which isn't too much of a surprise given the breadth, depth and audacity of his portfolio. Bruce Weber came in second, just pipping Steven Meisel and Richard Avedon. Up amongst the best in your humble opinion were also; Guy Bourdin, Corinne Day, Mario Testino, Mario Sorrenti, Albert Watson, Henry Clarke, Steven Klein and Peter Lindbergh. The Escentric Molecules go to Rebecca Wallace and Aimee King, both of Auckland. Thanks to everyone that voted... we'll have a new poll up soon. Here's a selection of lovely black and white images from these masters...
