In The Guardian today is this essay announcing the opening this week of a retrospective of Peter Hujar's work at the Institute for Contemporary Arts in London. The author declares "Hujar, without doubt one of the 20th century's greatest, if unsung, photographers." Hujar made many fine portraits. But I suppose how far out on the superlative you are willing to go depends on how many photographers you include on your "greatest" of the century list.
