A Moment of Yore: Ms. Marian and Lenny
This Moment of Yore is simply amazing. Here we have the iconic Marian Anderson singing with legendary Maestro Leonard Bernstein looking on as they rehearse at the Lewisohn Stadium in 1947. It's a brilliant shot that captures the intensity and focus of these two greats at work.
Taken by Ruth Orkin (1921–1985), an award-winning photojournalist who took many great pictures of celebrated figures, this portrait comes courtesy of Fans in a Flashbulb - which showcases images from the collections of the International Center of Photography. Skip on over to see a couple more stellar images.
