Influence & Originality... cont'd

As a quick follow up to last weekend's post on Influence & Originality in Photography, consider these pairs of paintings. In both cases here the similarities in subject matter are quite deliberate. Monet and Renoir setting up their canvases side by side, and Picasso and Braque synthetically working through the issues of Cubism. Makes me wonder if a similar example of cooperation and collaboration exists today among the major names of Photography? Would love to hear of any you know of.
