The other day I wrote a post about a good buddy, Arnold Crane. It's worth taking the time if you haven't read it yet, not because I'm the author, but because he was one of the giants in our industry and you need to know about him.
Last night I was looking at his book and the very first image you come to is the image below as a two-page spread. It seems so trite to just call it the ultimate "selfie," but in a world caught up in cell phone images and a host of Internet photo-sharing, I just got a kick out of Arnold grabbing this shot. He was obviously ahead of his time!
In a post comment from Cynthia Crane she wrote...
What an amazing man I married - and luckily married me.
We met on August 18, 1987 and have never been apart since that day.
His photos do live on.
Arnold's images will definitely live on and I know this won't be the last image of his to be shared. His friendship was an amazing gift, so many of us were fortunate enough to have shared.
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
