In The power of photographyNow available from ACC Art Books, famed gallery owner and art collector Peter Fetterman has curated 120 images close to his heart – many of them humanistic portraits of celebrities.
“I’ve tried to strike a balance between iconic images and ones that no one has seen before, because for me that’s the joy of collecting,” Fetterman told The Daily Beast. “I receive just as much joy and inspiration from everyone, regardless of their creator’s recognized stature.”
Some of the book’s highlights 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 who top the list are Paul Caponigro’s ‘Two Pears’ [which] is just pure beauty. Lisa Law’s ‘Bob Dylan’ because I’m a huge fan and Dan Budnik’s ‘Martin Luther King’ because it’s deeply humbling and so powerful.”
“I call it my wall of heroes and heroines,” he adds.
