Which countries have the highest number of famous photographers?

9 months 1 week ago #663969 by EOS_Fan
This is not meant to be a war thread.  I'm from the U.S., so would normally be bias to saying U.S., but that response is triggered from homeland pride.  Putting aside each of our love for our own country men and women, is there a higher number of famous well known photographers from one country over the rest?

Personally, I wouldn't care to know… I recognise no value
to the information in any way I may reflect on it.

Photographic nationalism? That should stir someone......I also don't care.

Why so serious?

That you ask about fame rather than quality should tell you something about your own question

I wouldn't even know where to guess with this.  Japan or USA?  WOW don't know where to even start on this one.

Famous to whom? If I had to bet, China or India....Lots of famous photographers there we don't know about, no?  We keep thinking we are the center of the universe.

I was uncomfortable with an american daring to come up with
such a question. I am, however, very pleased your reply sets the
balance back for me. Thanks for that, Ernesto!
