Jeanloup Sieff - Photographer
Because of suggestions from the inspiration thread: JeanLoup Sieff deserves a thread of his own. He was a French photographer, unfortunately died in 2000 at the age of 66. "Sieff took a while to find his place. He had brief stints at Elle and at Magnum, and left both without either having made any mark on him. A few great reportage series, notably on a miners' strike in Belgium in 1959, remain as witness to another kind of photographer that he might have become. But in the early 60s he found himself at the Jardin de Mode magazine with Frank Horvat and Helmut Newton, and suddenly fashion could be shot in real locations out on the streets - Sieff was in his element."





and my all time favorite photograph of his:

Wow, his work is amazing.
I've only heard very briefly of him before, but these pictures are great and I really need to look more into him now.

Thank you for starting the thread!

Edit: I really have a thing for the cigarette pic as well.

I've seen them but I can't find them. The JLS site is down and so is another where I've seen most of his work.
