An Interview with Arnold Newman
If you make environmental portraits, you can trace your photographic lineage to this man. Arnold Newman is widely recognized as the father of the genre. In fact, a young Greg Heisler famously camped out on Newman's doorstep until he agreed to take him on as an assistant.
It's not every day that you get to spend half an hour listening to the photographic equivalent of an Old Master. He's seen here circa 1981 as interviewed by Barbaralee Diamonstein, with much wisdom to be had.
