Basquiat to The Beatles: Some of the World’s Most Stunning Portrait Photos
·2 min read
In The Power of Photography, out now from ACC Art Books, famed gallerist and art collector Peter Fetterman has curated 120 images that he holds dearest to his heart—many of them humanist portraits of celebrities.
“I tried to achieve a balance of iconic images and those that no one has ever seen before because to me that is the joy of collecting,” Fetterman tells The Daily Beast. “I get as much pleasure and inspiration from all of them regardless of the acknowledged stature of its maker.”
Some of the highlights of the book include William Clift’s portrait of George O’Keefe, Yousuf Karsh’s capture of Winston Churchill, Neil Leifer’s Muhammad Ali, Nikki Kahn’s vision of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Eve Arnold’s Malcolm X.
According to Fetterman, “those that are at the top of the list are Paul Caponigro’s ‘Two Pears’ [which] is just pure beauty. Lisa Law’s ‘Bob Dylan,’ because I’m a big fan, and Dan Budnik’s ‘Martin Luther King,’ because it is deeply humbling and so powerful.”
“I call them my wall of heroes and heroines,” he adds.
Below are some portraits from The Power of Photography, which you can see here exclusively:

Prosecutors in the penalty trial of Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz will begin their rebuttal case Tuesday, challenging his attorneys' contention that he murdered 17 people because his birth mother abused alcohol during pregnancy, a condition they say went untreated. Prosecutor Mike Satz's team is expected to call experts who will testify Cruz has antisocial personality disorder — in lay terms, he’s a sociopath — and fully responsible for his Feb. 14, 2018, attack at Parkland's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. According to the National Institutes of Health, people with antisocial personality disorder commit “exploitive, delinquent and criminal behavior with no remorse.”
