I'd recommend just browsing around the magnum site in general, it's pretty much as good as photojournalism gets
Dunno why I didn't think of Magnum before.
I just say someone's photos on Facebook and they ruled. Made me realise not only how much i suck at it but how much everyone else does.
Jonas bendiksen. Among so many other things he's done, he ventured to the kazakhstan launch area for satellites (including sputnik) and went taking photos of abandoned, derelict ones. The white things in the shot are butterflies. Sigh <3
consistently absolutely brilliant.
(shame there's not much of him on the web)
One word name. Begins with an M i think. If anyone studied photography they would have looked at his stuff. He was alright I think. I used to quite like Arnulf Rainer as well but that was more mixed media stuff.
and the obvious one...
black and white 'things'
I think the name sounded more European. Maybe Italian or something. Perspective used as well. Possibly a massive hand in one photo but i may be getting mixed up. Going to bug me now.
Italian/Portuguese sounding name.
Bill Brandt did the b&w perspective thing mentioned above which I got mixed up with the mysterious person.
And these, too:
And there's some good stuff on here:

all similar really, I love that stuff!
Barbara Kruger's work is interesting too, although not strictly photography
Try and see William Egglestone at a gallery if you can, the colours are so powerful in real life.
Hans van der Meer
Rut Blees Luxemburg
Those Kubrick photos up there ^ are awesome.
another film director who was a great photographer, Andrei Tarkovsky:
also, Nick Zinner from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs is really good:
(the one at the bottom, 'TV', is my favourite)
Firstly, thanks to georgiabeth for the mention. Here are my picks:
STEPHEN JB KELLY
Young Hong Kong-based British photographer. Check out his work on central China's muslim minorities. Incredible.
He's been chosen as the official photographer for he general election, but he's worth a mention for his work 'Motherland', haunting images from the length and breadth of Russia.
His website isn't up to much but I recently bought his book 'Travelling Through the Eye of History' which is a collection of images from Central Asia spanning a couple of decades. Really really inspiring stuff.
Also, nobody seems to have mentiones ROBERT CAPA, so I will. The original war photographer. http://www.pbs.org/wnet/americanmasters/episodes/robert-capa/in-love-and-war/47/
= Wolfgang Tillmans
i love pretty much everything he does and he seems dead cool.
can it be Christmas eve already?!
In addition, what are people's favourite Flickr photographers?
in order to sell more greeting cards on Labor Day.

Alexander Binder who seems to have this almost Black Metal vibe going on:

American Surfaces is one of my favourite photography books
