Have you ever tried to find links to people and images that matter in the history of photography? It’s kind of a nightmare….
A bunch of people, who met at the GPP conference in Dubail in 2013 and in 2014, have gotten together and pieced a list of resources that they have found useful, one way or another, in learning about photography as a form of expression.
These resources are exclusively focused on photographers and their production. There is nothing here about gear. Not because it’s not important, but because it’s not the point.
There is also no judgment of value on these artists. Some of these I hate, some of these I love, and you’ll have your own favorites. Again, that’s not the point.
The point is to educate your taste, so you can build your own style, one day.
I’ll leave you with this quote from André Gide:
“Everything that needs to be said has already been said. But since no one was listening, everything must be said again”
and the admonishement to read “Steal Like an Artist” by Austin Kleon
