8 Glorious Portraits From World Famous Old Time Photographers

Its 3:16 at night on Friday, May 16th, and I've spent the past three hours flipping through the archives of the all-time great portrait photographers like Arnold Newman, Herb Ritts, and Richard Avedon trying to pretend I could do what they do with 0.001% of the effort. While I'm conceited, I'm humble enough to admit I'm about as close to matching their work as I am to holding my breath longer than a dead man.
