The Tank Man of Tienanmen Square, Muhammad Ali standing over Sonny Liston in victory. Many of us can automatically recall these photos in our heads, but far fewer can name the photographers who took them. 

L’homme devant le tank sur la place Tienanmen, Muhammad Ali surplombant le vaincu Sonny Liston. Beaucoup d’entre nous se rappel systématiquement de ces photos, mais peu se rappel le nom des photographes qui ont immortalisé ces moments.

Tim Mantoani hopes to change that by taking portraits of famous photographers holding their most iconic or favorite photos in his new book Behind Photographs: Archiving Photographic Legends.

Tim Mantoani espère changer la donne en faisant des portraits de ces photographes célèbres tenant leurs photos stars, le tout compilé dans son nouveau livre Behind Photographs: Archiving Photographic Legends.
