Quiz Description

A picture is worth a thousand words. Except for my English professors, who won't take a paper consisting of one picture, instead of the 600 words they assigned. Here is a quiz on famous photographs and photographers. Not much on the mechanics of photography, mind you, so don't worry if your answers don't follow the Rule of Thirds.
