A little photo 1, but who cares. I'm sorry the list app cropped them 😳
  1. Cindy Sherman will forever be my Beyonce. No one compares. I love this body of work so much -- it was being shown for the first time just as I moved to New York. Seeing these in enormous prints just left me completely in awe. Totally different experience in viewing photos on a screen or a book

  2. Alec Soth's Niagara is a classic and hits me straight in the gut. It's always a great book to revisit. The notes in it... O m g

  3. I worked in the LIFE archive for a few years and I can say with the utmost certainty that Nina Leen is the most underrated life photographer ever. This was from a GOP women's smoker. She covered everything from celebs to fashion to pears shaped like animals...they all have this kind of bizarre, awkward and strange quality

  4. Andrew Bush's portraits of drivers shot with a large format camera in his car. I had dinner with Angelyne in La and she told me it wasn't staged and she found it and threatened to sue if he didn't pay

  5. Nicolai Howalt's car crash studies...these prints look like paintings. Going to buy one

  6. Barbara Crane. Her close ups from private views, shot at summer festivals, are among my all time favorite pix

  7. Juliana Beasley's work from the Rockaways. She's a special person...very immersive in her work in ways I admire. I assisted her once in college and it was really fascinating to watch her work. Her book Lapdancer, shot during her stripper days, is also one of my favs

  8. Alex Prager... Universal appeal with her pix and films

  9. Helen Levitt's color street photography. Very rare for this period of time! Before it was cool or respected... Such a pioneer
