Burt Glinn

Burt Glinn, is a photographer who's had a very successful career photographing political and cultural events. Particulary from the 50's to the 70's. His photos have very beautiful compositions and he plays a lot with silhouettes and uses them succesfully. He's very versatile with his work, he can photograph commercial, capture personailty in portraits and capture the true essences of a moment. This photo stands out to me because i love the colors of the backfground and how the shapes interact with the silhouettes. It feels very expressive and the men waiting give the leonard bernstein a sense of hierarchy.
