Texas Tuesday: Picture Perfect

Black&WhiteBlah (2)

Today, the Harry Ransom Center (located on the University of Texas campus) is introducing a new exhibit entitled Arnold Newman: Masterclass. Arnold Newman is known as one of the finest portrait photographers of the 20th century who has created iconographic portraits of some of the most influential innovators, celebrities, and cultural figures of the twentieth century. Some of the people Newman has photographed include Marlene Dietrich, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, Arthur Miller, and Pablo Picasso. The exhibition explores the career and art of Arnold Newman and will show the entire range of Newman’s photographic art, showing many prints for the first time.

Most of Arnold Newman’s photographs are in black & white. To celebrate his photography, Sikara has put together a collection of timeless black and white pieces.
