Fifty years ago this month the May 1959 issue of Popular Photography published a list of the ten greatest working photographers. The list was arrived at by polling 243 "eminent critics, teachers, editors, art directors, consultants and working photographers". As unscientific as this method may have been, I think it produced an accurate reflection of general U.S.-centric taste half a century ago. This was the short era sandwiched between Family of Man and Szarkowski and firmly occupied by the uber-reality hit series Leave It To Beaver.
Who was popular in 1959? You tell me. The person who first correctly identifies the most names on the list wins the quiz and a free print. Please do not submit more than 10 names. Good luck.
