  1. Looking Glass

    Although he photographed in black and white throughout much of his five-decade career, Eliot Porter is primarily known for his color photography. An exhibition at the Getty Museum juxtaposes these lesser-known black and white photographs with his color work. Paul Martineau traces Porter’s career, illuminating the black and white aspectof his oeuvre.

  2. Gallery Of Greats

    For more than two decades, Abraham Aronow has doggedly pursued his passion of making portraits of famous photographers. Our article features two dozen of the more than 900 portraits in the collection. Ira Latour met with Aronow at his San Francisco Bay Area home.

  3. John Cohen

    In 1962, he photographed a young musician on the rooftop of a Third Avenue building in New York. The musician, 22 at the time and just starting out, was none other than Bob Dylan. Under wraps for many years, the photographs of young Dylan are now the subject of a book and a show.

  4. Jack Birns

    By special arrangement, we are able to feature the poignant pictures made by Life photographer Jack Birns in immediate post-war Shanghai—a city caught in the jaws of civil war.

  5. Joseph Rodriguez

    A documentary photographer of exceptional ability, his images of Mexico City prostitutes and mental patients in Romania portray the raw realities of life.

  6. Thaddeus Kubis

    A 2001 fire in his studio wiped out a lifetime of work, but eventually inspired a new beginning where a simplified approach reinvigorated his depiction of dilapidated relics of the industrial era.

  7. Susan Bank

    She started her career late, stimulated by a workshop with Mary Ellen Mark. Venturing into the back country of Cuba, she emerged with work that captures the soul of primitive village life.

  8. Rose-Lynn Fisher

    The encounter with a bee’s eye, seen through an electron microscope, was an epiphany that spawned her interest in photographing the seldom revealed structures of the physical world.

  9. Marty Knapp

    His seascapes of the Point Reyes National Seashore seize the beauty and intensity of light, atmosphere, and form that are the hallmark of this northern California coastline.

  10. Jim Krantz

    As a young man, attending workshops in Carmel, he soaked up the words and wisdom of Ansel Adams and Brett Weston. Today, his artistic expression builds on this exposure, exemplified by his haunting images from an abandoned prison.

  11. Russ Martin

    “I hardly ever photograph people. I like objects and landscapes, things that to me are more controllable. Landscapes I can move around in. I can take time with my compositions.”

  12. Dominic Rouse

    A master of digital manipulation, he creates bizarre images that plunge the viewer into dreamlike labyrinths of the sacred and profane.
