The occupation of a photographer and an artist in general means that the vast majority of the public doesn’t know anything more about you than what your art looks like. Tim Mantoani, who is a photographer himself, decided to reveal to the world the faces behind some of the most iconic pictures ever taken. His project started in 2006 using a 20×24 Polaroid camera. He liked the style of this specific camera and he knew that his final images would appeal to the viewers, since there would be a lot to look at. He shot over 150 photographs in this format, which he later released in a book, which you can find on Amazon.

Acknowledging the artists behind the pieces of art is the most important thing when referring to an artwork. Knowing only about the photograph is just half the information that a person needs. Giving credits is what these people deserve and should get.
