Whilst Arnold Newman is recognized as a pioneer of Environmental Portraiture, he spent the early years of his career experimenting in abstract and documentary photography. Spanning 1938 to 1942, this previously unpublished collection of his early work introduces his formative years as a photographer and gives an insight into the visual beginnings of a great photographic master. This uncharacteristic series of images focuses on the people and places impoverished by the Depression. Arnold Newman (1918-2006) was born in New York City. He took up photography after leaving art school in 1938 and was discovered by Beaumont Newhall and Alfred Stieglitz in 1941. During the course of an enormously productive career he contributed to publications such as New York, Vanity Fair, Life, Look, Holiday, Harpers Bazaar, Esquire, Town and County, Scientific American, New York Times Magazine and many others. His work is in the collections of many major museums and private collections around the world, and he was the author of an extensive array of internationally published books. He was also awarded many international awards.
