The Greats of Contemporary Photography – An Essential List

August 6, 2020 Share

Since its inception, photography has been at the centre of how we express moments, capture movements and document our humanity. Great photographers have influenced art, music, fashion and society and great publications have been built on their legacy and imagery. 

At DDW, we celebrate these pioneers of our culture and invite you to follow their work as they continue to provide a literal and metaphorical lens on our world. We cut through the bombardment of social media imagery and serve you with a refined list of some of the greatest contemporary photographers of our time:
