William Eggleston is one of the most influential photographers in the history of the medium. He is regarded as a pioneer among contemporary photographers in the exploration of the artistic potential of color photography. He took his first black-and-white photographs at age 18 and soon became serious about photography, though he never studied it formally. His first color work was shot in 1964 in color negative film, but in the late 60s he began to use color transparency films. His 1976 one man exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York is credited with making color photography a legitimate artistic medium. Over the course of his career, he has been the subject of dozens of books, exhibitions in museums and documentary films. He also has been working on commissioned projects from artists, cooperates and museums such as David Byrne, Coca-Cola and Cartier Foundation of Photograph. The recipient of the 1998 Hasselblad Foundation International Award and his works have been part of permanent collection of various museums such as J, Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Museum of American Art, Washington DC; Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Tokyo; and Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

Nan Goldin is one of the most influential female photographers working today, and in 2002 The New York Times described her pictures “as influential as any in the last twenty years” for their influence on fashion and fine art.
As a teenager in Boston in the 1960s, then in New York starting in the 1970s, Nan Goldin has taken intensely personal, spontaneous, sexual, and transgressive photographs of her family, friends, and lovers. In 1979 she presented her first slideshow in a New York nightclub, and her richly colored, snap-shotlike photographs were soon heralded as a groundbreaking contribution to fine art photography. The Ballad of Sexual Dependency—the name she gave her ever-evolving show—eventually grew into a forty-five-minute multimedia presentation of more than 900 photographs, accompanied by a musical soundtrack.
Her work has been the subject of two major touring retrospectives: one organized in 1996 by the Whitney Museum of American Art and another, in 2001, by the Centre Pompidou, Paris, and Whitechapel Art Gallery, London. Recent exhibitions include the slide and video presentation Sisters, Saints & Sybils at La Chapelle de la Salpêtrière, Paris, and her contributions to the 40th Les Rencontres d’Arles in 2009. Goldin was admitted to the French Legion of Honor in 2006 and received the Hasselblad Foundation International Award in 2007. The Ballad of Sexual Dependency was most recently presented live in Turbine Hall at Tate Modern, London, in 2008, and the slideshow was installed in the exhibition Here is Every. Four Decades of Contemporary Art at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, September 2008 to March 2009. Her Scopophilia exhibition is currently part of Patrice Chéreau’s special program at the Louvre. Goldin lives and works in Paris and New York.

New Jersey native Ryan McGinley began documenting his friends and Lower East Side subculture in New York City when he was a teenager. The fine art community took notice of his work when he printed a fifty-page, inkjet book entitled The Kids Are Alright in 1999. His large-format color photographs soon graced the walls of the Whitney Museum of American Art, where he was the youngest person ever, at the age of 25, to be given a solo exhibition. McGinley’s work has since appeared in prestigious publications such as the New York Times Magazine, W, French Vofue and Interview allowing him to broaden his subject-matter to include Olympic athletes, artists and other visionaries in their familiar settings. An exhibition at P.S.1/MoMA established him as one of America’s preeminent young photographers. His subsequent photographic series, have run from large scale road trip productions, caves and intimate studio portraits. All of this is a testament to his ever-evolving aesthetic and maturity as an artist. His works are part of permanent collection of Guggenheim Museum (New York), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (San Francisco), and Whitney Museum of Modern Art (New York). He has shot advertising campaigns for clients such as Missoni, Stella McCartney, Balenciaga, Microsoft, Levis, Pringle and L’Oreal. A career retrospective, Ryan McGinley, will be published by Rizzoli International this summer.

Martin Parr is one of the most famous documentary photographers working today. He has developed an international reputation for his innovative imagery, his oblique approach to social documentary, and his input to photographic culture within the UK and abroad. In 1994 he became a full member of Magnum Photographic Corporation.
In recent years, he has developed an interest in filmmaking, and has started to use his photography within different conventions, such as fashion and advertising. In 2002 the Barbican Art Gallery and the National Media Museum initiated a large retrospective of Martin Parr’s work. This show toured Europe for the next 5 years. Parr was appointed Professor of Photography in 2004 at The University of Wales Newport campus, Guest Artistic Director for Rencontres D’Arles in 2004 and was awarded the Erich Salomon Prize and the resulting Assorted Cocktail show opens at Photokina. In 2008 Parr was guest curator at New York Photo Festival, curating the New Typologies exhibition.
Parrworld opened at Haus de Kunst, Mucich, in 2008. The show exhibited Parr’s own collection of objects, postcards, his personal photography collection of both British and International artists, photo books and finally his own photographs. The exhibition toured Europe for the following 2 years. At Photo Espana, 2008, Martin Parr wins the Baume et Mercier award in recognition of his professional career and contributions to contemporary photography. Parr curated the Brighton Photo Biennial that took place in October 2010. Over the course of his career, he has published almost 50 books, exhibitions in museums and films.

Terry Richardson is an international celebrity as well as one of the most successful and controversial photographers in the fashion industry.

He has shot advertising campaigns for clients such as Gicco, Miu Miu, Chloe, Mark Jacobs, Yves Saint Laurent, Tom Ford, ALDO and Sisley.

Stephen Shore began photographing at age eight, and at fourteen sold three prints to Edward Steichen (then director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York). Shore left a Manhattan prep school during twelfth grade, and spent 1965 through 1969 documenting Andy Warhol’s factory. In 1971 the Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibited Shore’s work in the institution’s first-ever single artist show by a living photographer. In 1976 the Museum of Modern Art in New York exhibited his color work. Shore is the recipient of a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship (1975), two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships (1974 and 1979) and Aperture Award (2005). The George Eastman House mounted his first retrospective, Stephen Shore: Photographs 1973-1993, in 1996. His work is included in such collections as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum of Fine Art, Houston; Seattle Art Museum, Washington; and Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut. Shore resumed photographing in black-and-white in 1991, and more recently has begun shooting with a digital camera and printing small iphoto books. Throughout his numerous books and exhibitions, Shore has referenced popular photography, and he has been highly influential in introducing snapshot photography to galleries and museums.
