    The best photographers of all time? Surely there can be no definitive list! We’re not afraid of courting controversy here at Digital Camera World. OK, maybe we are a little bit, which is why we thought it was time to be bold for once! Over the years we’ve interviewed a number of famous photographers and been inspired by each of them, but one thing we often hear from readers, social media followers and others is… “who are the best photographers of all time?”

    It’s a good question! We put on our thinking caps and took a stab it.

    The 55 best photographers of all time. In the history of the world. Ever. Definitely.

    Following lots of coffee and some heated tuts, we agreed on a list of the 55 best photographers of all time.

    In the history of the world. Ever. Definitely.

    Is this list definitive? Of course it is! But we’d also like to hear from you too. If we’ve missed someone or you question our choices, let us know in the comments. Or on our Facebook wall. Or anywhere else we hang about.

    So without further ado…
