wanted to share this lovely project from tim mantoani, called "behind photographs: archiving photographic legends." mantoani showcases great photographers with their most famous image. a little bit of history, a little bit of photojournalism and a little bit of beauty.
this project also made me think about how these photographers must feel about their most famous images. from a personal and from a creative point of view. it must be hard to have your most famous work be from 20, 30, 40 years ago, no? or maybe not. lots to unpack in these beautiful images.
also, marilyn. can you imagine being behind the lens in that moment?
