3 Favourites From The "50 Photographers Of Note Powerpoint"

Sally Mann's photographs are big black and white photos mainly of her children. Her photos to me convey more dark themes that you wouldn't expect considering most of her famous photos are of her three children. This picture is one of my favourites because it is such a juxtaposition to see such a pretty young girl with a cigarette that you naturally associate with completely different types of people. I also love the use of natural light, the composition and the black and white to create this grungy shot.

This still life photo by Wolfgang Tillmans appeals to me because even though it isn't of anything particularly interesting the combination of items in the picture makes you wonder where this window sill is and what kind of room it is in or who it belongs to. I also like the cool colours and composition of this photo and the use of natural light. 

Le baiser de l'hôtel de ville (The Kiss)

This very famous picture taken by Robert Doisneau is just such a great picture I think because you can see this very real moment taking place between these two young people in the hustle and bustle of the city of Paris. The composition is really great and frames the couple really well, I also like how the movement of the other people surrounding them is blurred so you really focus on this moment captured in the centre.
