In 2001, Ede R. of the Picture Professional contacted me to see if we had a list of photographers who passed away the previous year. No such list existed before the creation of the list of "Photographers Who Passed Away in 2000." Every end of the year, I would receive an inquiry from Ede for the list and every year we would produce one. I neglected this work due to my transition to a new position in Libraryland, but I have decided to continue this work because I feel it is important to remember the lives and contributions of photographers--the brave who picked up a camera and left a part of themselves for the world to enjoy.
