Arnold Crane has been a photographer for the last 62 years, although he started out as a trial lawyer. Arnold's passion for photography has taken him to all corners of the globe. He is a member of the White House Press Photographers Association, and he is well known for his black and white female nudes. Arnold's most important contribution to photography, however, began after a chance meeting with Edward Steichen, curator of photography at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, in the late 1960's. Steichen, after seeing some of Arnold's candid shots of Man Ray, suggested that he photograph "all the photographers". And so, a project thirty years in the making was born.

Arnold's book, On the Other Side of the Camera, was published in 1995 and captured the master photographers at work. The cover photo of Man Ray is one of the true classics of our time! Our roving Nikonian, Jason Odell, caught up with Arnold Crane recently at his home in Chicago, IL, where they sat down for an informal interview.
