Famous Photographers Posing With Their Most Well-Known Images

Photographer Tim Mantoani started a personal project in 2006 capturing photographers and their most famous images.

Shooting in the rare format of 20 x 24 inch Polaroid, Mantoani has captured over 150 photographers who together have shot and recorded "decades of culture and celebrities with their own cameras".

Mantoani has captured legendary rock photographers Jim Marshall and Michael Zagaris, as well as others, like Walter looss, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, Pete Turner, Elliott Erwitt, Mary Ellen Mark and Roberto Salas.

His project has been collated into a book, Behind Photographs: Archiving Photographic Legends, which is available for purchase
