Masters of Photography

If this isn’t the most awesome thing on YouTube, I don’t know what is.  I’ve seen this countless times, and never grow tired of it.

*sigh*

  4. It is a lovely video. I like the section of the last part of the video about what the younger generation has to show/say. It can be taken 2 ways. I wonder which way it was meant. Positive or Negative, probably the latter.

  5. You think so Paul? I always felt that last part was more of like a tribute of greatness that’s to come. Even though it was just quick flashes of images, I thought the photos from the “newer generation” of photographers were stunning.

  6. Interesting, Chantal because I thought that the latter images paled in comparison. I guess that I’m just old fashioned! 🙂

  7. Hmmm….well the newer images are certainly a far different style from the others. The whole thing just felt like it was showing how photography has evolved over the last century.

    It’s cool how our tastes are all so different though. I love all those photographs, many are iconic and the photographers are legends. But there’s just something about contemporary photography that gets me in my gut…..there’s a passion there that was previously unexplored, perhaps. Or maybe it’s the use of color that I’m attracted to.

    Ever since I was a kid Gordan Parks was my idol…….but 3-4 years ago, when I discovered the work of David Hilliard…..that changed how I saw photography forever. Parks’ images moved me….but Hilliard’s work is so full of intimacy and passion, it actually brought me to tears the first time I saw it.

    Hmm…I’m feeling another article coming on 🙂
