The Photographers Behind Some of the Most Iconic Images of Our Time
Over the course of history, certain iconic photographs have become an integral part of our collective, cultural memory. Steve McCurry’s “Afghan Girl,” Jeff Widener’s “Tank Man,” and Nick Ut’s “Napalm Attack in Vietnam” are only some of the images that have left a lasting mark as the great photographs of our time. Tim Mantoani aims to immortalize those legendary shots and the brilliant individuals behind them in the ambitious series Behind Photographs, which depicts renowned photographers posing with their most well known images.
I went to New York recently to explore & capture the city and what it looks like to me. Went with my friend James Carpenter to visit Yewon Kim , she was kind enough to be our guide through the city for the day. More to come, enjoy.
Here’s something which I hope will be a good resource for Beatles scholars and students for years to come. This is a guide to who all the people on the Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band cover photo are. Every name is linked to the person’s own wikipedia entry, so this page will stay current forever. All the links will open in a new window. You can have acres of fun with this post for a long time. Enjoy!
