Agreed. Remember, we are talking about a list of just 5 people. You can
create such a list, but you run the risk of leaving someone out that is
important. Read and history of photography and you will discover that you
recognize lots of the names. Trying to winnow a list that big to 5 is
hard. I wish you luck. Post your finalists as soon as you have a list. I
would be very interested.
