Ayako Takaishi - Photographie. Center for Creative Photography. Aaron Siskind has been called an abstract photographer and, indeed, many of his photographs feature subjects that are not easily identifiable.

His photography, however, is not purely abstract. Rather, Siskind photographed recognizable places and things in ways that created a new means of communicating ideas, feelings, and perspectives on life and history. His innovation earned him a major place in the history of photography. Siskind studied literature at the City University of New York and intended to become a poet. In the early 1930s, while on vacation from his job as a public school English teacher, he began photographing with a camera he had been given as a gift by his father-in-law for recording the sights on his honeymoon.

But the history of photography is largely the history of black and white. Leiter is best known for his color photographs from the 1950s, work that lifted him from near obscurity to near deification. But with the publication of Early Black and White, and the concurrent exhibition at the Howard Greenberg Gallery, we can see for ourselves that he was more than a gifted colorist.

Leiter's interest in art began in his late teens, and though he was encouraged to become a Rabbi like his father, he left theology school and moved to New York to pursue painting at age 23. In New York, he befriended the Abstract Expressionist painter Richard Pousette-Dart, who was experimenting with photography. His friendship with Pousette-Dart and soon after, with W. Eugene Smith, expanded his interest in photography. Leiter's earliest black and white photographs show an extraordinary affinity for the medium.

Cheyenne Randall: Inking Icons

Johnny Cash. Elvis Presley. These men were undoubtedly badass. The only thing that would have made them more so? That’s the revelation that Seattle-based artist Cheyenne Randall had while bedridden with a dislocated kneecap several years ago. Randall pulled a screenshot of the actor into Photoshop and searched the Internet for tattoos. Marlon Brando © Cheyenne Randall “From the very beginning, it has been important to me to stick to quality, American traditional tattooing and really beautiful studio or portrait shots of actors and actresses,” he says.

When he started, most of Randall’s 1,000 Instagram followers were people interested in Native American artwork, which had been the previous focus of his creative endeavors. “I’d been doing that for a long time but it didn’t get as much recognition because people love their icons,” Randall says. Exhibition: ‘The world is beautiful: photographs from the collection’ at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra. Exhibition dates: 4th December 2015 – 10th April 2016 Despite a focus on the camera’s relationship to the beauty and pure form of the modern world – “the attraction and charm of the surface” – these photographs are more than just being skin deep.

In their very straightforwardness the photographs propose a “rigorous sensitivity to form revealed patterns of beauty and order in the natural and man-made alike.” But more than the portrayal of something we would not see if it were not for the eye of the photographer, the lens of the camera, the speed of the film, the sensitivity of the paper, the design of the architect, the genetics of nature … is the mystery of life itself. Modernist structures and mass-produced objects in plants and animals can never beat a good mystery. Just look at Man Ray’s Woman with closed eyes (c. 1928, below) or the look in the eyes of Robert Frank’s son, Pablo. Marcus .
