[7Nov19] The main purpose of this section of the site is an aide-[to my failing]-mémoire of photographers I want to be aware of because they are cited in OCA course material or because I admire them. There are (or will be, over time) individual pages of those cited in particular courses - EyV, C&N - and the current course is the main entry point to the section.
Following a visit to the new V&A Photography Gallery in October 2018, which is showing works from many of the photographers in their collection, links have been added below for entries on the exhibition pages. These are in the format "Name...V&A". If there are both sorts of entries that will be shown as Name [V&A]. Similarly, photographers featured in the review of the 2018 Taylor Wessing Portraits show of suffixed "TW18".
[10Sep19] I find Terry Barrett's book Criticizing Photographs very helpful in organising my thoughts on the subject, particularly his definitions of Types of Photograph.I am currently in the process of writing an extended summary of the book. He cites many photographers as examples and these references will be included in this index with the suffix "CP". I may include some supportive links (e.g. Wikipedia and artist's web site) on the book summary page.
