Many celebrated photographers are included here, such as Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Eugène Atget, Brassaï, Julia Margaret Cameron, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, André Kertész, Dorothea Lange, Gustave Le Gray, László Moholy-Nagy, Man Ray, Alexander Rodchenko, August Sander, Alfred Stieglitz, and Edward Weston.
