Arnold Newman was known for his portraits of famous artists and politicians. or environmental portraiture.  His work was mostly published in magazines. He was not only known for his photographs but for his many books. His work was featured in photographic books. At first Newman studied painting but after moving to Miami his interests turned to photography.He didn’t like being known as “ father of environmental portraiture “. He says that his work has much more meaning than just having artists strike and pose. Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world states Newman.
I find this my favorite from his work because of the angle and how Bill Clinton’s office was in the view too.
