You may not know Arnold Newman by name, but you’ve definitely seen his photographs. Considered one of the most admired portrait photographers of his time, Newman started his trade taking 49-cent studio photos in Philadelphia, and ended up photographing some of the biggest names of the 20th century.
From Marilyn Monroe to future president Donald Trump, his environmental portraits showed his subjects in their natural element, capturing an intimate side of the world’s most untouchable figures.
In honor of the late photographer's 100th birthday, take a look back at his timeless portraits that still captivate viewers today.
