Vote for the best photographer of all time! In the history of the world. Ever. Definitely.

 

Now that we’ve counted down our list of the best photographers of all time, we’d like your help in choosing the overall best photographer! We’ve created this poll for you to vote for your favourite.

We’ll leave this poll open for one week, closing at the end of Sunday, 26 August 2012. After which point we’ll tally the votes and determine who you chose as the best photographer of all time.

To celebrate the winner, we’ll commission an in-depth profile of the photographer you chose in the poll. We’ll, of course, let you know more details about that and when it will be published as soon as we know the winner of our poll.

So without further ado… get voting!
