Portraits by Michael Somoroff of the greatest photographers of the 20th century, including Brassaï, Elliot Erwitt, André Kertész, Duane Michals, Helmut Newton, and Jacques-Henri Lartigue, among others, many of whom he assisted.
In 1978, Somoroff took it upon himself to photograph his heroes and mentors. They represent the true master photographers of the twentieth century. Each in-depth photograph caught a quintessential moment. Somoroff presents exquisite black and white portraits of twenty-five icons of photography, each of whom played a dominant role in shaping the medium during the climax of analog image making.
