Il décède à New York en 1984. Josef Breitenbach milite très tôt dans les cercles pacifistes du parti social-démocrate. Il s’éloigne de l’action politique mais n’en maintient pas moins les liens forgés avec les milieux contestataires de la gauche et de la bohème munichoise dont il retrouve certaines figures dans l’exil. Passionné de photographie depuis l’adolescence, Josef Breitenbach ouvre son premier studio à la fin 1931 et devient rapidement à Munich le portraitiste attitré des personnalités de la scène et du cabaret. Inquiété pour ses antécédents politiques, il fuit l’Allemagne nazie pour Paris en septembre 1933. Film and Video Umbrella - The Forest. …finding a little fairytale everyday. Home2 — STUART REDLER.

Blast after blast, truckload by truckload, humanity had embarked on an elaborate limestone-relocation project, otherwise known as “construction.” João Castilho > Vacant Plot. Elliott Erwitt's Pittsburgh. “Everything was grand, heroic.

Elliott Erwitt's Pittsburgh

Everything seemed to be gigantic in Pittsburgh—the people, the history. Sinuousness. Power. Substance. Meaningfulness.” — Pittsburgh-born poet Jack Gilbert, in a 2005 Paris Review interview. ED VALFRE'S DREAMLAND. The Compassionate Eye. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the publication of The Grapes of Wrath.

The Compassionate Eye

One man made a singular impact on this American classic, photographer Horace Bristol, who took author John Steinbeck to the migrant labor camps where he documented the desperation of the Depression. 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. Saul Leiter: Early Black And White.

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. 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.
