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.

Sophia Loren, by Richard Avedon for Harper's Bazaar, December 1965


Andy Warhol, by Albert Watson, 1985


Tony in White, by Herb Ritts, 1988


Christian Bale, by Platon


Antonio Banderas, by Herb Ritts, 1994


Bobby Clark, by Philippe Halsman, 1954


Marcel Duchamp, by Arnold Newman, 1966


Suzy Parker, by Richard Avedon, 1951
