Rob Becker: How they look – Photographers’ portraits
Although they professionally take photos of other people, photographers themselves do not necessarily like being portrayed. Yet most of the photographers portrayed for this book felt that they should contribute to this series, often precisely because they themselves constantly capture other people.
With a great fascination for the human face, photographer Rob Becker decided to focus on one specific professional group for his first monograph on portraits. The point of departure was the question: ‘Who are the women and men whose photos I have seen and admired? What do they look like?’
How They Look – Photographers’ Portraits shows more than 100 photographers from all corners of the profession and from 30 different countries of the world. Portraits include Lynsey Addario, Michel Comte, Barbara Davidson, Todd Hido, Nadav Kander, William Klein, Peter Lindbergh, Raymond Meeks, Joel Meyerowitz, Daido Moriyama, Erwin Olaf, Anders Petersen, Robin de Puy, Sebastião Salgado, Martin Schoeller, Jacob Aue Sobol, Alec Soth, Albert Watson, Sanne De Wilde, Michael Wolf.
