Tim Mantoani has converted his 2010 photographic series, Behind Photographs: Archiving Photographic Legends into a book, which consists of 150 portraits shot on 20” x 24” Polaroid film. The portraits are of world-class photographers with their iconic images.

Mataoni feels that people need to understand that iconic images don’t just happen, that there is an artist behind the lens who creates them: ‘Without these people and their understanding of photography, these moments would not be there for us to understand and appreciate over the course of time’, he says.
