Opening today at the Harry Ransom Center in Austin, Texas "Arnold Newman: Masterclass." Newman once told me that my photographs were "Superfcial Snapshots." I was 19 and he gave me that KICK that I needed. That kick is still driving me today and I still look at his portraits of artists for inspiration. I can't wait to visit the retrospective which runs through May 12.
