Master Photographers

From 1977 to 1983, Michael Somoroff, then a gifted young New York photographer in his twenties had the privilege of photographing some of the greatest photographers of the 20th century, including Brassaï, Elliot Erwitt, André Kertész, Duane Michals, Helmut Newton, and Jacques Henri Lartique, among others. He was first introduced to many of these icons through his father, Ben Somoroff, who studied under Alexey Brodovitch, and was a great still life photographer. The portraits that Somoroff took were originally created as a kind of visual journal, a tribute to the modern masters by a young photographer. Thirty-five years later, this historic body of work was published in A Moment. Master Photographers: Portraits by Michael Somoroff (Damiani, 2012).
