    I recently saw some of Arnold Newmans work and was blown away, surely the guy that pioneered the environmental portrait deserves a mention here:

    I love Arnold Newman. His portrait of Igor Stravinsky is one of my all time favorites.

    No, I meant the one where he's sitting with the piano.

    I think that a combination of a wide angle lens and the pattern of the tiles makes the one you posted look the way it does. Both add a lot of depth.

    This is great stuff. Just this evening on the way home I was thinking about how much I disliked portraiture and how boring and bland I find it, and then I see these. Wonderful. It's so much more than just a face. It's the life behind them.
