    That is too bad, he will always be remembered by me for his wonderful B&W portraits.

    I saw and heard him speak at the Houston Museum of Fine Art several years ago. He did a slide show and told stories about how he came to make those famous images. He was one of my influences when I was starting out. He will be missed.

    Agreed... he will be missed, and leaves an impressive body of work to remember him by.

    This is indeed sad news. I loved his work and had the chance to see an exhibit of his prints at the Worcester Art Museum.

    A great loss, the master of available light!
    Even when he used "tons" of light, the result always looked natural, that`s not at the reach of many.

    I think Longfellow said it best in a "Psalm of Life";



    [COLOR=Indigo] Lives of great men all remind us
    We can make our lives sublime,
    And, departing, leave behind us
    Footprints on the sands of time[/COLOR]


    He sure did leave some wonderful footprints for all to see.

    I met Mr. Newman during an Ansel Adams workshop. He had a strong influence on me as well. I will always remember him.
    But his work will be with us forever and thats the best gift to photography.

    A long time ago I had the privilege to assist Arnold Newman. It was an experience that greatly influenced my commitment to my work and my understanding of what it takes to be a photographer.

    Arnold Newman was a true master of the portrait and many of the elements that we see and take as a given in contemporary portraiture are directly attributable to his style and vision. The body of work he leaves will inspire many, for many years to come.
