Behind Photographs Tim Mantoani

Incredible project where a photographer and his most famous images pose together gathered in the book Behind Photographs: Archiving Photographic Legends.

“Today, when Tim’s not shooting on assignment, he’s documenting venerable lens men who have collectively captured decades of culture and celebrities with their own cameras. Legendary rock photographers Jim Marshall and Michael Zagaris have sat for 20 x 24-inch Polaroid portraits, as have Walter Iooss, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, Pete Turner, Elliott Erwitt, Mary Ellen Mark and Roberto Salas. Tim’s enthusiasm for the medium of photography is undiminished by the changes he’s seen during his career. For him, it’s not work so much as a mission. He sees the story in each face, in each place; and lives to give them a voice through his work.”
