    You have brought me to an important point as a newbie. I have felt, for quite some time, that obviously beautiful,stunning,striking scenes are universally recognized/photographed. It is the “hidden in plain sight” and “right under our noses” stuff that once recognized and appreciated deserves to be photographed just as much as the more obvious stuff. (“stuff” is my technical jargon!) Previously I had worried that my fascination with the seemingly mundane was wrong, whatever that means.
    Thanks!

      They thought Eggleston was crazy too! The mundane is beautiful. Keep looking and finding. Good luck!

    Nice article. I’ve always liked Ernst Haas and thought John Szarkowski dismissed him too readily in favour of William Eggleston. Two other photographers’ work I enjoy are Pete Turner and Saul Leiter; plenty of graphic work and unlikely lighting situations.

    Many thanks.

      Wow. Comparing Haas to Eggleston would not have occurred to me in a million years. Love Turner. Thanks for reading.

    I’m a great Haas fan – whenever I see ‘Albuquerque, Route 66 after the thunderstorm’ I have to stop and take a good, long look. Knocks me out every time. Glad I discovered your site (Guardian masterclass); loads of articles for me to read! Many thanks.

      I’ve been a fan of Haas from my early teens. That image gets me too! It’s shot from in a car and is dark and ominous, but still I want to be there. Enchanting it is.
      Glad you found my site Dudley. Welcome. Please comment freely and often.
