Painter Jackson Pollack, New York, January 3, 1949. 51670711, Arnold Newman

Arnold Newman: Ever since I can remember, even as a little kid, I drew. I have a cartoon from The New Yorker on the wall right in front of my desk. There's a teacher, a little kid drawing and ... what does it say underneath? "Wasting precious time in class like that will get you nowhere in life."

Getty Images: So you always knew you wanted to be an artist?

AN: I always wanted to be a painter, ever since I was a child.

GI: But you're a photographer. What happened?
