For the partner project I'm joining up with Christy. I was thinking about researching Nigel Barker or a fashion photographer, but I'm not sure how Barker fit's into the historical aspect of study. So, I found a few more artists (Thanks to Wiki). Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Francesco Scavullo, and Herb Ritts. I'm thinking Avedon or Scavullo would be good to research, however; I'm learning towards Richard Avedon more.
This is a photograph of Marilyn Monroe by Richard Avedon.
