    Do a quick search on photographers from Magnum. There's one other legendary photographer in Magnum other than the often-mentioned HCB, Robert Capa (one of the founder of Magnum, one of the most celebrated war photographer who'd pass away while covering the Vietnam War).

    Errrr .... you dun need so many whom you may not be familiar ...

    IMHO .... this is my suggested list

    1. HCB - for his decisive moment HCB

    2. Robert Capa - for going so close as to cover war photography and founder of Magnum Robert Capa

    3. Ansel Adams - for his great skills in B&W and one of the most celebrated photographer who has his photos going for auction .. Ansel Adam

    Closer to home ... it is where we should be familiar and I see no points covering so many and could not even single 1 in our nation.

    4. Yip Cheong Fun - for his great skills in B&W, singapore 1984 cultural medallion award winner. He was credited as one of the top 10 great photographers by NYPS for the last century ... hope you can read chineses .. Another thing worth to mention ... he stayed in Chinatown !!!

    I think the list of great photographers goes on and on and on.................

    I would prefer to think of lengendary photographers as those who taught/showed/revealed new ways of seeing. People who created "great biographies" of the subjects they chose to photograph.

    Examples: (others have their "favorites")

    Cartier-Bresson: the special moment
    Adams: the magnificance of landscapes
    Weston: purity of forms
    Gibson: Abstraction
    Capa: courage
    Smith: photo-story
    Salgado: Documentary
    Brandt: Forms (especially his nudes)
    Lanting: artistry in wildlife
    Caponigro: mysticism
    Kenna: mystery in landscape
    Karsh: portraits
    And so on, and on, and on.....
