We all have favorite photographs in our lives, whether they are taken by ourselves or others. But how many of us know who is the photographer behind that image?
Tim Mantoani embarked on a project a few years ago to highlight iconic photographs with their makers, in order to preserve and introduce us to the people behind the camera. Beginning in 2006, Mantoani captured Polaroid portraits of photographers holding their photos using a hefty 20 x 24 Polaroid camera. There are only a few of these amazing cameras left.
