Study for Kranky Klaus, 2002. Gelatin silver print, 10¼ x 14 in. (26 x 35.6 cm). Collection of the artist; courtesy Bernier/Eliades Gallery, Athens

I chose these three photographers and these pieces specifically  because they all work around some type of fantasty or dream like approach.
Born 1963, Edmundston, New Brunswick, Canada; lives in Malden, Massachusetts

Jill in Woods, 2005. Chromogenic color print, 19 x 19 in. (48.3 x 48.3 cm). Collection of the artist; courtesy Inman Gallery, Houston

This is one of my favorite photographs i have ever taken. It was very much  in the moment and capturing this beautiful creature in such a calm setting. I love how the light bounces off her back and the great range of tones captured in this photograph.
The composition of the three of them is interesting and fire adds a nice element to the photograph as well.
I chose this photograph because i love the movement in the water and the different range of tones i captures within the photograph.

Almerisa, Asylum seekers' centre Leiden, Leiden, The    Netherlands,  Rineke Dijkstra (Dutch, born 1959)1994
 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.
 I added this photograph, because i thought this abandoned truck was very visually intriguing to the eye and is not often seen everyday.
This photograph was captured when i was in New York City and i love it because  of the elongated shot of the mass amounts of store fronts they have in just one location and just how busy the streets are with people.
I chose this photograph because i love how i captured the warm tones of the  sunset in the back ground in relation to the bright colors of the field.

Lewis Hine
Girl 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 Margaret Cameron
                                                                          Julia Jackson
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/
                                                                     Ansel Adams
                                                                    Bridal Veil Fall,
                                                                    Yosemite Valley
                                                                         c. 1927
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.
I thought this staircase was very unusual and wanted to capture how it spirals all the way up.
I added this photography because i like the angle of the plastic pink flamingos neck and the lake around it.
I like this photograph because of the way the light is playing with the water
