Famous Photographers Posing with Their Famous Photos

January 25, 2012

We thought this was a great series, having famous photographers posing with their most iconic works. The portraits are part of a new book shot by Tim Mantoani Behind Photographs: Archiving Photographic Legends. We know you hear over and over again that photography is a dying medium, but when you see the best of the best, there is something really special to be taken in.

“We have come to a point in history where we are losing both photographic recording mediums and iconic photographers,” Mantoani comments. “While many people are familiar with iconic photographs, the general public has no idea of who created them. This book became a means to do that, the photographer and their photograph in one image.”
