I’m reading up on Paul Erdős again – the most prolific collaborative mathematician in history – who never won any Fields medals but inspired many who eventually did. Here he is with Terrance Tao at age 10 in 1985, now a mathematics superstar. Summarizing his field, it’s discrete mathematics and he was a problem solver.
