Edouard de Blaÿ - Paris Top 10 arthouse movies | Film Peter Bradshaw on art movies This is a red rag to a number of different bulls. Lovers of what are called arthouse movies resent the label for being derisive and philistine. And those who detest it bristle at the implication that there is no artistry or intelligence in mainstream entertainment. For many, the stereotypical arthouse film is Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Seal. Sergei Eisenstein's Battleship Potemkin was a classic art film from the 1920s and Luis Buñuel investigated cinema's potential for surreality like no one before or since. Arthouse cinema is dismissed as the connoisseur's elite fetish; others find it, in the dumbed-down cinema jungle, to be an endangered species. 10. A gay, Marxist Catholic: not the most likely candidate, you'd have thought, to make arguably the greatest of all religious films – and one of the very few based on the New Testament that doesn't lapse into hectoring, literal piety. 9. Haneke's films always feel, once the credits have rolled, untoppable. 8. 7.

Garry Winogrand Voir le portrait filmé de l'exposition : Le Jeu de Paume présente la première rétrospective, depuis vingt-cinq ans, du grand photographe américain Garry Winogrand (1928-1984). Chroniqueur célèbre de l’Amérique de l’après-guerre, Winogrand est encore mal connu, tant il a laissé de travail à accomplir — au moment de sa mort prématurée — dans l’archivage, le développement et le tirage de ses photographies. Il est cependant sans conteste l’un des maîtres de la photographie de rue américaine, au même titre qu’Evans, Frank, Friedlander ou Klein. Célèbre pour ses photographies de New York et de la vie aux États-Unis depuis les années 1950 jusqu’au début de la décennie 1980, Winogrand cherche à savoir « à quoi ressemblent les choses quand elles sont photographiées ». Winogrand a beau être considéré, par beaucoup, comme l’un des plus grands photographes du XXe siècle, l’examen de son corpus pictural et de son influence sur la discipline demeurent incomplets.

photo agency switzerland - Home Saul Leiter “To say that he flourishes at the top in the Mount Olympus of New York photography is saying a great deal. He is right up there with the amazing heights of photographic history itself. He’s more abstract than many, he’s more constructive than several but he’s also more soulful than a great many.” Max Kozloff (Art Historian) Saul Leiter’s ground-breaking work in photography and painting is only now receiving the international recognition it deserves. Leiter’s earliest black and white photographs show an extraordinary affinity for the medium, and by 1948 he began to experiment in color. Leiter has made an enormous and unique contribution to street photography. Martin Harrison, editor and author of Saul Leiter Early Color, writes, “Leiter’s sensibility…placed him outside the visceral confrontations with urban anxiety associated with photographers such as Robert Frank or William Klein.
