Andy WarholMystificateur pour certains, génie pour d'autres, Andy Warhol est quoiqu'il en soit considéré comme l'un des artistes les plus importants du XXe siècle. Fils d'immigrés tchèques catholiques, il grandit pendant les années de crise économique près des aciéries de Pittsburgh. Une maladie infectieuse contractée en 1937 l'oblige à garder le lit le plus clair de son temps. Il se forge alors un imaginaire sans limite. Après des études au Carnegie Tech en 1949, il part pour New York et devient dessinateur publicitaire. En avril 1961, un ensemble de 5 panneaux est exposé en vitrine d'un grand magasin de mode. Grand consommateur de presse people, il détourne des photos de stars puis s'attèle à la série des "Catastrophes". Son atelier surnommé la Factory tourne a plein.

The photographers can be from any discipline within the photographic range, but they have to be worth looking at and have a certain level of quality. When we get to number 500, we will have a deep database of great photographers. 500 photographers is done by Pieter Wisse, a photographer himself based in Rotterdam, NL. Once this website reaches photographer #500 it will be finished and done. Suggestions Do you have a suggestion for this list? 500 Exhibitions and more Do you want a tailor-made 500 Photographers projection at your photography event or are you interested in creating an exhibition?
