These lists are by no means comprehensive, but they contain many of the photographers that we studied on the MFA program and are the ones that made the biggest impact on me.
The individual entries include a favourite image together with various links to Wikipedia, The Tate or The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA). Sometimes I have just included a link to Google photos by the artist or a link to someone else's archive.
In some cases, I have also included the name of a book by the artist and/or various handwritten notes from the MFA, including extracts from my dissertation.
I have built this database for my own enjoyment and is far from perfect! Enjoy it if its useful to you.
