Marvin Newman: an Unsung Photography Hero in New York

2017-05-04 1

Breaking in the arts is a tough job, ever for extremely talented artists. Many diamonds are in the rough; such is the same with the photography industry.

New York native and photographer Marvin Newman has been photographing since the 1940's, and is credited to be one of the first people to shoot Big Apple in full color. Only now has he made his own, first monograph, at the age of 89. Famed as well for his sports photography, Newman has always been conscious of motion, movement, rhythm, color and context. His own investigations with color keep him experimental.

Here are some of his early photographic works of his New York home and environment.
