There are certain photographs that are nothing short of iconic, images that are so well known--and so well done--that we can see them in our mind's eye. But rarely do we have any clue as to who the photographer is behind those famous images. Well, I ran across one man who started a personal project to change that and in the process amassed a beautiful collection of portraits. Tim Mantoani is a San Diego based sports and advertising shooter; in 2006 he started photographing famous photographers holding their most famous photo and the results is a book titled, "Behind Photographs"; do yourself a favor and check out some of his work featured in this PetaPixel article: http://petapixel.com/2015/02/12/portraits-famous-photographers-iconic-photographs/ .
Rarely do I wish I had done something already photographed by another shooter, but I wish I had thought of this project before Tim did. Great job, Tim! Great images!
