Looking through Arnold Newman's lens

  • Arnold Newman doesn't like labels, but if you had to give him one it would be "Father of the Environmental Portrait." At a time when others were relying solely on formal studio settings, Mr. Newman chose to photograph his subjects in their natural environment. He has photographed many of the most interesting personalities of the 20th century, including Pablo Picasso, John F. Kennedy and Igor Stravinsky. Mr. Newman passed away at the age of 88 on June 6, 2006.
