I am writing an essay on a internationally reknowned photographer that I admire and I have chosen Arnold Newman (cue Seinfeld reference – I hate the show and yet it gets in my brain…Newman…) and I have come across this quote that I find particularly inspiring:
“The truly innovative artists create ideas and images unrelated to anything we have experienced or seen before, new ways of seeing and thinking about our own familiar worlds. This is the real creative artist we all aspire to be.”
Wow. I chose this artist because I like his portraits of artists but I am really getting into him after reading some of his thoughts and looking through lots of his works.
Its a short essay so I may put it up here…
