Criticizing Photographs

Nick Ut's "Napalm Girl", Marc Riboud's "Flower Girl" or Robert Doisneau's "Le baiser de l'hôtel de ville": Everyone remembers these famous shots, but few can name the photographer behind them, despite these photographers being highly acclaimed by their contemporary critics. Let's take a look back at these famous art photographers who have managed to take their art on a journey through the years. 

There is no need to introduce Henri Cartier-Bresson, the French photographer considered one of the pioneers of photojournalism combined with art photography. Nor Steve McCurry, the author of the famous photograph "Afghan Girl", which was on the cover of National Geographic magazine. On the other side of the Atlantic, Walker Evans gives a moving, honest and intimate view of those who lived in poverty during the Great Depression. Diane Arbus portrayed "freaks", those people on the fringe of society. To this day, many of these photographers are internationally renowned.  Dominique Leroy, a French documentary photographer, was awarded the Kodak Prize in 1987 and has been the winner of the Best Car Photographer Award on several occasions. In the UK, Martin Parr received the prestigious Royal Photographic Society Award in 2008. 

These artists use photography as both a vehicle for protest and a tool to celebrate and document the beauty of the world. They silently capture and show a moment of life that will perhaps go down in history. Discover these famous photographers who venture to the four corners of the world, or even to the corner of their street, to create powerful and striking images...
