SUCCESSION ARNOLD NEWMAN Arnold Newman est reconnu comme un des grands maîtres de la photographie du XXe et du XXIe siècle et comme le "Père du Portrait Environnemental". Durant une carrière longue de plus de 65 ans, Arnold Newman photographia quelques uns des plus célèbres personnages de la politique, du business ou de l'art. Né en 1918 à New York, il fut élevé et éduqué à Atlantic City et à Miami Beach. Il étudia l'art de 1936 à 1938 grâce à une bourse de l'université de Miami. Il commença sa carrière de photographe en 1938 en travaillant dans des studios réalisant des portraits à la chaîne à Philadelphie, Baltimore et West Palm beach, peu de temps après il devint indépendant et réalisa des photographies abstraites et documentaires. En juin 1941, Beaumont Newhall du Museum of Modern Art et Alfred Stieglitz "découvrirent" ce jeune photographe et lui organisèrent une exposition avec Ben Rose à la galerie A-D de New York. Newman commenga à travailler sur des portraits expérimentaux, développant une approche considérée comme ayant beaucoup influencée la photographie de portrait d'aujourd'hui. Son exposition en solo de 1945 au Philadelphia Museum of Art, "Artists Look Like This" attira l'attention du pays tout entier. Il se rendit en Afrique en 1958 afin d'effectuer un reportage pour Holiday Magazine et visita la Côte Ouest, le Nigéria, le Congo et l'Ethiopie.
