BEHIND PHOTOGRAPHS: ARCHIVING PHOTOGRAPHIC LEGENDS
BEHIND PHOTOGRAPHS: ARCHIVING PHOTOGRAPHIC LEGENDS began as the personal quest of photographer Tim Mantoani, who spent over five years shooting portraits of 150 photographers, each holding their most iconic or favorite image. The project was shot using a series of rare and mammoth 20x24 Polaroid view cameras and includes such photographers as Elliott Erwitt, Mary Ellen Mark, Steve McCurry, Neil Leifer, William Wegman and Nick Ut.
Elliot Erwitt: “The picture I am holding was snapped in 1974 just across the street from my apartment in New York’s Central Park. It has been 38 years since that event and sadly I have lost track of the participants.”
