Richard Avedon - A fashion and celebrity photographer for the most part, Avedon's work is always striking.  Love this image of Dovima wearing an early Yves Saint Laurent evening dress for Dior from 1955.  Avedon's action shots are always amazing especially his superb ads for Versace during the Supermodel decade.
