The publication of this collection of more than 100 black-and-white photo portraits by Newman coincides with a National Portrait Gallery exhibit. Nearly 50 years ago, Newman was a pioneer of the portrait style that places its subjects in their working environment. This book could serve as a visual tool for researchers, as it captures a who's who of significant Americans from the mid- to late 20th century. Introductory essays by Alan Fern and Arnold Newman gracefully explain the circumstances surrounding many of the photographs in this showcase of Newman's mastery of his medium and, during the shoot, of his subjects. A recent interview with Newman on National Public Radio's "All Things Considered" (April 14, 1992) confirmed this great portrait photographer's gentle, insightful approach, beautifully captured in the images and words in this book. Recommended for most collections.
