John Gutmann (1905 – June 12, 1998); German-born American photographer and painter.
A painter turned photographer, Gutmann began working as a photojournalist in 1933 for Presse-Photo. Being Jewish, in 1936 he fled Nazi Germany to the United States where he worked as a photographer for various German magazines, signing on with Pix Publishing, an agency he worked with for over 20 years. Gutmann's main subject matter was the American way of life, especially the Jazz music scene. Gutmann is recognized for his unique "worm's-eye view" camera angle.
He enjoyed taking photos of ordinary things and making them seem special. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Gutmann)
