Some example pictures by a few of the photographers nominated by TOP readers as standouts of the current digital/internet era, in response to the "Dare I Ask?" post. In no particular order. The reader who mentioned them in parentheses (unless there were many, or none).
Hedi Slimane [male, French], from Fashion Diary (Eddi)
Angela Bacon-Kidwell [female, from the U.S.] ("...Even though she's guilty of placing angel wings on a human, which was a ubiquitous trangression in the early days of digital and one that I thought I could never forgive." —latent_image [hey, even Koudelka's done that...sort of. —MJ])
UPDATE: Angela Bacon-Kidwell responds: "Just for the record the images of mine that you refer to having 'angel wings' are not digitally altered. They were actually there. I have a new image with 'paper angel wings.' I wonder if it might resonate with you. :-) Thanks for the shout out and intro to your site."
Loretta Lux [female, German]
Christian Coigny [male, Swiss] (Eric Kellerman)
Tommy (Toshihiro) Oshima [male, Japanese] (Bob Blakely). This is Solo Sniper: Daido Moriyama in the streets of Soho, London.
Jason Eskenazi [male, from the U.S.] (Rory Challands). Note that Wonderland is back in print, and can be ordered directly from Jason at his website for only $32. Cool. Much better than paying $73 to $900(!) at Amazon. —MJ.
