  1. 6/10, but one randomly… I need to work more ! 
    Thanks for this test, it was fun ! 

  2. 7/10, not bad ;)

  3. I think you have the wrong anser for Daido Moriyama. I pickled high contrast and the quiz said "wrong .. over exposure is not … (forget the rest of the sentence).
    A fun quiz though.

    • Went back to check the test again .. not sure if you changed the question or I mis-read it, but now the question is what is Daido NOT known for. I thought it read .. what is Daido known for …

      • Guy, no I did not change it, you must have misread ;)

        Actually, my wording is mis-leading since I use a double negation in question and answer. The idea was : "your Answer is wrong -> this is is the good answer". Is that clearer ?

  4. Google is my friend again: Flo Fox has not only "naughty pictures" but also street shots from NYC on her website.
    Inge Morath was a Magnum member and the wife of Arthur Miller. Thought that the first name you gave was a trap.
    Agree with Guy on Daido.
    Fun quizz, specially the answer you gave for Cardiff :D !

    • Using Google to answer is cheating Simon ;)  

      As for the traps … I'd have fallen in them too if someone else had written them. !


  5. 7/10! Higher than I thought!

  6. Aw i got the lowest 5/10. Great quiz though

  7. I am disappointed to see no 10/10 ?  And probably a few 1 and 2 that did not dare posting ;) 

    6-7 out of ten is already excellent since a few ones were quite tricky.

  8. And many thanks for the name Raghu Rai. 
    (Knew an Inge but unfortunately never a Greta. That's why I was positive about Mrs. Morath – Miller's first name). 
    Yet for Flo Fox and Raghu Rai I checked google, I admit :( .
    Very, very impressive photographer indeed. You set this logic fact in proportion for me: looking for pictures from India, it's very likely to find the best ones made by journalists-artists out of the 1.2 billion inhabitants of India.

    • I guess it is a general rule. If you want your street photography known, you also have to be a reporter. Think about all the Greats, most of them were reporters. Once they reached fame through reportage, then their street photography was discovered.

      I am sure that there were / are a lot of other talented street photographers in India, but none got the exposure that Raghu did through is reportage work. Cheers.

  9. 8/10. Great quiz Yani!

  10. Fun quiz. i thought i knew it all, well some, perhaps a little..gotta go, Zombie Walk here in Big-T. Toronto,Canada.
