A Photograph Is Not Taken, It Is Made

The Inspiration/Photographic Diary of
Daniel Driensky

So grateful to get my @mariotestino Portraits book signed last night at a private afterparty for his @dallascontemporary show! Always such an honor to meet someone whose work you admire and love. The book is a large size so it meant lugging an oversized camera bag all night to carry it but well worth the effort in the end. Thanks so much @bobodog70 & @erinwasson for the introduction and for the awesome photos I got of you two with him 🙌 #mariotestino #mariotestinodallas #midnightrambler (at Midnight Rambler)

Nerding out over this Arnold Newman reference in ‘Good Morning Vietnam’. The photo of LBJ on the wall is by photographer Arnold Newman who photographed LBJ and many other US Presidents in the White House until his death in 2004. One of his biggest feats as a Jewish photographer was photographing Alfried Krupp, an ex Nazi and friend of Hitler, in the 1960s after WWII. He wanted to portray him as evil without being obvious, so he lit his face a certain way that makes him look like the devil. Google “Newman Krupp” if you’ve never seen it! #arnoldnewman #goodmorningvietnam #lbj #uspresident
