I chose these three photographers and these pieces specifically because they all work around some type of fantasty or dream like approach.

This Artist relates to my work in project #1, because she takes portraits of people that would not always be considered beautiful but in her eyes they are because of the shot itself.
Lewis HineGirl worker in Carolina cotton mill
Hine was a Master because he could really get behind the scene of these children doing labor and capture these extreme elongated angles of this man made machine in contrast with this little girl to emphasis how large and dangerous this Machine is and should not be in the hands of children.
Julia was a "Master" even though she was an amateur photographer, because she had a great vision when it came to Personal Portraits of people and how she would master the lighting in each photograph giving it a soft feel to the Image. In this photograph she really captures the expression in the Facial features. http://masters-of-photography.com/
Bridal Veil Fall,
I believe this Image is in the archive of "The Masters of Photography" Because of the broad range of values within the Image and the Softness of the Waterfall against the dark rocks.
