[abonnement gratuit] Andreas Gursky est né à Leipzig en 1955. Il a été l'élève à Düsseldorf du couple Bernd et Hilla Becher, photographes méticuleux et classiques de l'Allemagne postindustrielle. Veuillez noter : Il nous est extrêmement difficile de réunir les autorisations nécessaires à la présentation des photographies originales dans le texte et nous n'avons pas de budget pour la rémunération des ayant-droits. par Henri Peyre Andreas Gursky, Uni Bochum, 1988, 99,5 x 138,5 cm Andreas Gursky, Ruhrtal, 174 x 223 cm Andreas Gursky offre les images abouties de ce que peut être un travail à la chambre dans le format géant et avec utilisation du retraitement numérique pour amélioration de la qualité des images. Le choix des sujets non plus. Gursky parcourt le monde afin d'y dénicher ce qui peut convenir à la réalisation de clichés grand spectacle. En cela la photographie de Gursky dérange autant qu'elle séduit. Andreas Gursky, Stock Exchange, Tokyo, 1990, 188 x 230 cm

Accueil - Sebastiao Salgado Martin Parr on Magnum Reporters Without Boarders Martin Parr Joel Meyerowitz on Phaidon Taking My Time is the retrospective monograph covering the life and career of Joel Meyerowitz and provides you with an unprecedented insight into the mind and work of this iconic American photographer.

Showing the growth and development of Meyerowitz and his photography from the 1960s to the present day, Taking My Time explores the pivotal points of Meyerowitz’s career and his experiments in both colour and black and white photography and explorations of human intimacy, architecture, light and space.

Shinoyama was born in Tokyo in 1940 and at the age of three underwent ordination rites to become a Buddhist priest. After leaving Light Publicity in 1968 to freelance, his creative energy and unique character and appearance made him a mass media star.

Review: Karyudo (A Hunter) by Daido Moriyama (Kodansha reissue) It seems safe to guess that many people will just hate the 2011 reissue of Karyudo (A Hunter) by Daido Moriyama. Instead of opting for the original layout the publisher, one of Japan’s largest and - as a Japanese student of mine told me - well known for its manga comics, produced a small book, with full-bleed images across the gutter (if its any consolation, the reissue of Japan: A Photo Theater even cuts up at least one image and produces two spreads out of it). I haven’t seen the original book (a quick Ebay search taught me I could either buy a copy or pay rent for half a year), but I’m absolutely loving this new version. (more) Of course, I’m no expert on Japanese photographer. The full bleed, across the gutter format works very, very well with these often aggressive, visceral photographs. Highly recommended.
