    Default Famous Modern Photojournalists/War Photographers

    Can anyone think of any? Need to be current and preferably have enough information out there to talk about for 15-20mins. Was orginaly going to do this on Robert Capa, then found out they have to be a current (or recently current) photography. The almighty google is not helping me much with this one.

    It's for my historic values and future trends, we have to talk about the photographer generally + analyse some of there photos and make links to other photographers worked. I've looked at Nachtwey and he does seem like a good choice.
