[Video] The Photographers Behind Their Iconic Photos

Photographer Tim Mantoani has been working on a 5-year project called “Behind Photographs”, where he has been capturing the artists that were responsible for some of the iconic images that have shaped our culture. In this video he talks about his process a bit more, and shows the rare 20x24 Polaroid camera he used. Very cool historical piece here, it’s an interesting juxtaposition showing the photo with the photographer. What do you think of this project? Is his camera big enough?

Tim Mantoani was previously featured on FStoppers, with a behind the scenes video from a College Sports shoot. You can see that post here.

Because of the nostalgic aspect, I love the idea of using such a camera for this project!
And I love the idea of the project, nice to see the people who actually made the pictures that move us!

I'ma look into that book.

I think there is some mistake... I was never called to hold up my iPhone picture for his book.
