Twelve Influential Photographers

a presentation given to the RA Photo Club

Twelve Influential Photographers_5As Sir Issac Newton once said – “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”

This presentation gives your vision a boost by pointing you at shoulders to stand on. I’ll avoid the debate of which photographers are the “greatest” and merely claim that these twelve are truly great.
