The first major exhibition of the photographer’s work since his death,Arnold Newman: Masterclass examines the evolution of his singular vision. The exhibition presents early experiments Newman made while working as a studio photographer in Miami Beach, including informal portraits, cityscapes, documentary images, and design studies. It was during this formative era that he began to perfect the “environmental portraiture” style for which he would become famous. After making New York City his permanent home after World War II, Newman traveled the world, fulfilling assignments for leading picture magazines such as LIFE and Holiday.
