Arnold Newman [Historical Photographer]

"We do not take pictures with our camera, but with our hearts and minds" -Arnold Newman (1918-2006).

Maybe this is how he managed to bring out so much emotion in his images, like this one of Pablo Picasso for example.

His portraits were not ordinary to say the least. I love the use of shapes in this one of Igor Stravinsky. The composition of the picture is very interesting with a focal point of the man on the left balancing out the huge black piano on the right.
