Early Influences

Been looking at some of the photographers that influenced me when I first started out - Robert Frank, Cartier-Bresson, William Klein, Walker Evans, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Ralph Gibson, Clarence John Laughlin.  Frank, Klein, and Evans still resonate for me.  Gibson, not so much anymore.  Meatyard, Laughlin & Cartier-Bresson are great, just not as influential any more. Who were your influences?

Which early influences still resonate for you?

William Klein - Candy Store, Amsterdam Avenue, New York, 1954-55
