Does anybody know of any famous black and white photographers? I need to write a few pages on one for homework. I take a class on photography. Anyway, i've already done Ansel Adams and some other guy... It would be especially good if they did work somewhat on the symbolic/artistic side of photography. Thanks in advance :)

Do some research on Robert Capa, one of the most famous photographers of all time. He was the one who took the picture of the soldier who gets shot during the Spanish civil war and he later documented the second world war.

You could also mention the famous Danish photographers Jacob Riis who worked in the US in the last part of the 19th century. He created the book How The Other Half Lives which depicts the slum and the living conditions of the poorest in America. That book was the forerunner for much of the social work begun around that time.
