Paul Newman, 1969
Gelatin silver print on paper
20 x 16 in. (51 x 41 cm)
Paul Newman (1925–2008) starred in two successful films released in 1969. He played the titular role of Butch Cassidy alongside Robert Redford in the Academy-award-winning film, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Newman also starred with his wife Joanne Woodward and Natalie Wood’s husband Robert Wagner in the racecar drama, Winning. Newman appears in this photograph in Hollywood wearing a jacket bearing his initials that is similar to the clothing he wore racing. Winning sparked a lifelong love of automobile racing that would culminate in the colorblind Newman competing several times. In 2015, a documentary, Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman, explored the actor’s lasting fascination and side career in the racecar world. This photograph captures Newman as his burgeoning passion for racing takes hold.
