Of all the stories we tell on this site, the stories of the lives of those photographers who have passed on are the most inspiring. The story of every human life is different but we can most appreciate those who have toiled in the same fields as we do.

Nobody ever had it easy but everybody had a ball. And looking back at their lives teaches us how to carry on.

The thumbnails that you'll find with each obituary on the year pages is part of our homage to these photographers. It seems to us that this chance to describe the arc of a person's life and achievement is also an opportunity to look more closely at their work. So we start with an image of theirs that we like and crop in a detail that says something about their life and work. We never manipulate the image, other than to crop it.

If you're looking for a specific photographer, use the Full List option and your browser's Find command.
