William Eggleston. Magnum and the Dying Art of Darkroom Printing. A few years ago, I had the pleasure of spending some time with Pablo Inirio, master darkroom printer at Magnum Photos in New York.

Magnum and the Dying Art of Darkroom Printing

I was thinking about that interview recently as I heard the news of Kodak’s bankruptcy and pondered the precarious status of “old media” like books, film and silver gelatin prints. As Magnum’s printer, Inirio gets to work with some of photography’s most iconic images. In his small darkroom, the prints lying casually around include Dennis Stock’s famous portrait of James Dean in Times Square (right) and a cigar-chewing Che Guevara shot by Rene Burri.

Intricate squiggles and numbers are scrawled all over the prints, showing Inirio’s complex formulas for printing them. Œuvres - Arnold Odermatt - Artistes - Galerie Georges-Philippe & Nathalie Vallois. Taryn Simon, photographe de lieux secrets. Spencer Brownstone Gallery. Opening reception April 11th 6-8pm Jeffrey Sturges presents the built environment through a precise and unsentimental frame.

His large, relentlessly frontal color images offer a play between a monumental format and subject matter that is decidedly everyday. Sturges’ photographs demonstrate how different architecture really is from the kind we studied in textbooks. He shows the relationship between the texture, color, and light in architecture and, their counterparts in painting.

The Camera Club by Chris Verene (NSFW)

It's a creepy series, following groups of men who somehow lure young women into modeling nude by placing ads in the classified sections pretending to be fashion photographers. Le saviez vous? Paris 3e. Galerie Alain Gutharc. L'exposition « Cyberspaces » traite avant tout d'espace.

Paris 3e. Galerie Alain Gutharc

Ou plutôt des fragments d'un espace privé, à la fois réel et virtuel, que des prostituées « occasionnelles » donnent à voir et à pénétrer à leurs clients par le biais d'internet, d'une webcam, et… d'une carte de crédit. Le cybersex est un produit des Occidentaux qui nouent des relations virtuelles avec des femmes sud-américaines, asiatiques ou d'Europe de l'Est.

Il en résulte des scènes de fausse intimité dont témoigne Joachim Schmid. Best of 2013: Kohei Yoshiyuki's "The Park. Originally published on April 25th 2013: This morning we take a look at Japanese photographer Kohei Yoshiyuki's series of black-and-white photographs from the 1970s.

Best of 2013: Kohei Yoshiyuki's "The Park

Using a 35mm camera, infrared film, and flash, Kohei documented people who gathered in several of Tokyo's parks at night for romantic rendezvous and the many spectators that lurked in the bushes to watch and sometimes participate. The photos are raw, voyeuristic and uncomfortable. Exhibition: ‘Eugène Atget: Old Paris’ at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney. Exhibition dates: 24th August – 4th November 2012 “…I have assembled photographic glass negatives… in all the old streets of Old Paris, artistic documents showing the beautiful civil architecture from the 16th to the 19th century.

The old mansions, historic or interesting houses, beautiful façades, lovely doors, beautiful panelling, door knockers, old fountains, stylish staircases (wrought iron and wood) and interiors of all the churches in Paris… This enormous documentary and artistic collection is now finished. I can say that I possess the whole of Old Paris.”. Eugène Atget 1920. “The first time I saw photographs by Eugène Atget was in 1925 in the studio of Man Ray in Paris. Friends - Christopher Clary. "Qu'est-ce que la photographie", une exposition réjouissante au Centre Pompidou.

Cette question se pose depuis l'apparition de la photographie.

"Qu'est-ce que la photographie", une exposition réjouissante au Centre Pompidou

Là, les photographes n'y répondent pas par la théorie mais par les images. Les œuvres sélectionnées dans la collection de 40.000 épreuves photographiques du Centre Pompidou, des années 1920 à nos jours, montrent comment une trentaine d'artistes, de Man Ray à Jeff Wall, d'y sont confrontés. Rune Guneriussen - wall No. 9. Bruce Munro - Installations. Krzysztof Pruszkowski. By subjecting his photographic topics, wether they are taken from the media or not, to "multiple superimpositions", Krzysztof Pruszkowski demonstrates the limits of the new reality.

Krzysztof Pruszkowski

A reality which disolves the notion of time picture by picture and, in a way, accounts for the speed which characterizes some videoclips, the instant circulation of information and pictures around the world. We are no more in the order of the snapshot. His process: to subject the picture to up to sixty or seventy superimpositions. He names it "photosynthesis" - the gathering of information which could not be covered in one shot. The process is often limited to six or seven superimpositions.

Miwa YANAGI やなぎみわ. Roman Signer — Galerie Art : Concept — Exposition. Past: January 8 → February 19, 2011 Since the mid-seventies, Roman Signer has showed and re-enacted paradoxes.

Roman Signer — Galerie Art : Concept — Exposition

The mini-shows and non-happenings generated by his sculptures, installations and performances and documented by his videos and photographs form a permanent questioning on the economy of entertainment. With a light approach, his work tackles modern concerns such as efficiency, performance or productivity, as well as our deeply rooted obsession with functionalism. Renowned for his “Action/Sculptures”, Signer has often been defined as a pyrotechnical artist or even given the label of “explosion-artist”, but he refuses to be circumscribed by the abundant literature and many remarks circulating on his work.

American Photographs by Australian photographer Graham Miller is the result of a road trip through the Southwest of America in the summer of 2009. The mythology of the American West is embedded in our consciousness. Big skies, windswept desert plains, Wild West towns, and Route 66. It’s a cinematic landscape, intricately tied to images recalled from TV shows, films, photographs and novels that have lived in our minds since our childhood. This series of images represents an intersection between fables of the West and the reality encountered along the road.

Through the windscreen of our silver V6 Ford Fusion, we saw little of the wilderness that Timothy O’Sullivan encountered on his Great Survey of the region in the 1870’s and only fragments of Robert Frank’s lonely gas stations, bars and luncheonettes from the 1950’s.

Hiroshi sugimoto polaroid. Photographer Snaps Nearly A Hundred Photos a Day With Homemade Camera. Miroslav Tichý, was a photographer that constructed his own homemade cameras out of cardboard tubes, tin cans, dress elastic and old camera parts he found. From 1960 to 1985 he used these homemade cameras to snap thousands of images around town often of unsuspecting women.

It wasn’t till 1981 that one of his friends gathered up prints strewn all over his studio, and organized them to share with the world through photo exhibitions, that Tichý’s work would finally be discovered.
