Arnold Newman

I posted some new photographs up on JPG's website including a sentimental photo I took a few years ago of the great photographer Arnold Newman. I had a chance to meet Arnold Newman up in Maine shortly before he died. He was always an inspiration for me with his ability to bring photography to the realm of fine art and have the two medias interact. He was also a wonderful person and his positive attitude was terrific to be around. This image shows him getting his slides ready for a lecture and I always liked it because it captured a little bit of his jovial personality.
