Is that second photo of an American? Non-standard arms for US military.

The resolution on those is stunning! The unselfconscious poise and indifference to the camera is very touchingly impressive as well.
Btw who was that famous 19thC photographer in N.E. England who did all those sepia photos of working folks? I had a calendar with twelve repros.on it but I think my wife binned it - buggered if I can remember his name!
MIPOAT - Vivien Maier and O. Winston Link (amazing photographer - but a very unpleasant, grasping bloke from all accounts!
George Washington Wilson?
I don't understand why people fall for this "most important/influential" sort of thing. How do you quantify the number of people who have seen a particular picture or how many people have been influenced by it?
To be honest, the photographers who have most influenced the pictures I take, you've probably never heard of.
I think a large part of any style I might have is based on the pictures of Cyril Bernard, who specialised in the educational press during the 1960s but had been active in press work from the end of WW2. A slightly better known influence is Kevin MacDonnell, who was active in the same period and on into the 1980s.

I seem to recall reading that he'd taken a perfectly harmless distant photo of some older boys diving naked from a boat in Whitby harbour and some pettifogging nincompoop tried to prosecute for indecency - it was laughed out of court!
This one most probably;-
