We all know the big guns - Paolo Roversi, Mario Sorrenti, Chadwick Tyler, Peter Lindbergh and Hedi Slimane. This post isn't about them, nor is about photographers like Billy Kidd, Eric Guillemain, Jonathan Waiter and Michael Donovan who probably are underrated but who still have a good following.
This post is about the photographers who I think are really underrated and don't get the credit and exposure that their talent deserves:
At first glance Karl Rothenberger strikes you as a good journeyman photographer - in his work with Ashton Phillips, he just let her do her thing - but I think he is a lot more interesting. Even his more straight forward photographs reveal a lot more depth on closer inspection. You can find his main site here and his blogspot and tumblr.
I will probably do a couple more of these sets, I think a large portion of my favourite photographers are obscure and underrated.
