Question 8 in our cryptic quiz: ‘Three Is The Magic Number’

3rd September 2009 by Denise

Moving swiftly on, we catch up with our photographer friends, who are struggling with a difficult new client. After completing yesterday’s task and identifying three MOO employees, Goldilocks wants to know about their influences. Will her demands never end?

Unbearable Lightness of Being

Part three

The next challenge Goldilocks set for The Three Bears was to name a photographer they admired, capable of photographing man-made objects and wildlife with equal aplomb. A photographer who used color just as well as black and white. A photographer who could beautifully frame an object as large as a bridge, or as small as a flower. A photographer whose work would look good printed large or small.

Poppa bear grumbled, “What? Is she trying to make us look bad?”
Momma bear mumbled, “When is she going to let us take some photos?”
Baby bear smiled and laughed, “I know just the photographer,” and he didn’t have to go very far at all to find his name!

QUESTION: What photographer did baby bear name?
