    Ian,
    Have you come across writers like Victor Burgin?

    Yes, I first came across Victor Burgin's images and writings in the 1980's. I've not read much of his writing just a few shorter pieces and his approach is so very different to my way of working and thinking.

    It's that kind of Marx/Freud/Sociology-based writing that I find so unsatisfactory.

    My list would be.
    Borut Peterlin. Superb wet plate and Albumin prints. Like his vlog as well
    Ian Ruhter. Brilliant giant wet plates and a drives his camera!
    Don McCullin. A photographer I tried to emulate in my journalist days
    Clive Butcher. Would love to own one of his giant prints.
    Alex Timmermans. His wacky style is very thought provoking.
    Paul G Johnson. A great vlog
    Cheers
    Diz
