Bill Brandt is a master of using vantage points through his photos. He often has body parts in interesting angles, and distorted nude figures through his photography. In this piece it appears as if it is taken from a womens point of view. The good use of lighting on the legs make it an intriguing picture.
This is a piece by Lee Friedlander. His usal subject matter is "social landscapes" which include local stores and street signs. In this picture he places the camera on the ground among a group of people sitting by a city. The picture makes you feel like you are part of the crowd.

Richard Avedon is one of the few photographers I am actually aware of. He was an important and key figure in photography and his photo's speak for themselves. I like this photo particulary mainly due to the subject matter. The model is attractive and has a sexual tension to it but does not exploit her or is explicit. The portrait composition is simple yet effective. The grey background and the lighting of the model create an interesting picture.
