The Tate Modern Museum in London always has awesome photo shows, of which I’ve had the pleasure of seeing two: STREET AND STUDIO: An Urban History of Photography and EXPOSED: Voyeurism, Surveillance and the Camera.

Both were incredible and changed my idea of what photography is and can be. How often do Juergen Teller and Henri Cartier-Bresson share wallspace with Norman Parkinson and Philippe Halsman? The exhibitions are long over, but the books are still available and inspiring time and time again whenever they are opened.
