ARNOLD NEWMAN: ONE WORLD, ONE PEOPLE

One World, One People, an exhibit by renowned photographer Arnold Newman, is a culmination of portraits he has made of significant individuals over the course of his career. Spanning six decades of work, from the early 40s to the present, this collection contains Jewish public figures, from artists to entertainers, to philosophers and politicians. All of the portraits are of Jews who have made a significant impact in their respective fields and are unique to the personality of the person they portray.

Arnold Newman was one of the world’s best known and most distinguished portrait photographers. He is considered the “Father of ‘environment portraiture,’” a style that places its subjects in a carefully composed setting that captures the essence of their work and personality. Each portrait is captioned with personal anecdotes by Newman on the sitting and its famous subject. Family photographs and biography of Arnold Newman are included in the exhibit. The exhibit provides museum visitors with a unique opportunity to view a photographic display of 20th and early 21st century Jewish history.
