Biographical Sketch

Abraham "Abe" Aronow was born in Brooklyn, New York, on June 3 1940, and was raised in New Haven, Connecticut. At age ten, Aronow began learning photography from his father who was an amateur photographer. Following his graduation from James Hillhouse High School, he enrolled at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in 1962 and then enrolled at Harvard Medical School, earning his Doctor of Medicine degree in 1966. Three years later, he and his wife, Alice Barney Aronow (born 1942), moved to San Francisco, California. Aronow practiced medicine in the Bay area until his retirement in 2007.

While working as a physician, Ansel Adams became one of Aronow’s patients in 1981. Adams invited Aronow to a filming session attended by the surviving members of Group f/64 and other photographers. This began a decades-long and ongoing as of 2015 photographic project by Aronow, focusing on portraits of photographers, artists, authors, musicians, scholars, scientists, physicians, and others.


Scope and Contents

The collection consists of 196 photographs (185 gelatin silver prints, 11 chromogenic color prints) by American photographer Abraham "Abe" Aronow from his series Portraits of Contemporary Photographers. The majority of the portraits are headshots of twentieth-century photographers, including such notable figures as Ansel Adams, eve Arnold, Richard Avedon, Elliott Erwitt, Lee Friedlander, Annie Leibovitz, Sally Mann, Beaumont Newhall, Arnold Newman, and Aaron Siskind. Also included are portraits of other significant figures associated with photography including historians, curators, and dealers. Many of the portraits were made at the Ansel Adams Workshop in Carmel, California, with others made in the photographers' homes and studios.

The photographs are organized in alphabetical order by subjects’ last names.
