Mike Mandel’s Baseball Photographer Trading Cards (1975) is more or less a standard set of trading cards, except for one thing: rather than famous athletes, Mandel’s cards feature photographers. For the series, Mandel shot some of the greatest photographers of the twentieth century, including Imogen Cunningham, Ed Ruscha, and even Ansel Adams, whose portrait session didn’t go quite as planned.
