Got to add my favorites to that list:
Lee Friedlander
Garry Winogrand
William Eggeleston (maybe not exactly "street" but redefined color photography)

The list was not meant to be all inclusive.
I should have included Winogrand.
The real sin is that I left out Jay Maisel..
I also left out ,,, Arbus (both of them)
I left out Klein,, and I left out Joel Meyerowitz
I have never liked Friedlander's work, but I shouldn't leave him out .
He is probably one of the most important street photographer of the 20th century . If only for the sheer volume of work he has turned out.


Anyone who wants to add to the list ,, please feel free to do so..
