Masters who capture moments

The first photograph that caught my young attention was by Irving Penn. It originally served as the cover for Vogue Magazine in 1950. I saw it much later, while in my teens… and for me, it was a turning point in “seeing”. Since then, I have studied and collected books on various Photographers who captured an image that left me with a lasting memory. Below are just a few of the greatest legends…
