The eye of Friederike von Rauch "I try to avoid the sun." The statement of photographer Friederike von Rauch would seem to run counter to the very nature of photography and photographic art, but as one familiarizes oneself with her photos, a richly layered story of perception unfolds. Von Rauch, a German photographer living in Berlin, began as a silversmith and first stepped behind the camera while working as a location scout for large film productions. She works almost exclusively in black and white and always with a traditional analog camera. Working with a series of self-imposed constraints von Rauch makes no changes to the world as she sees it but rather meticulously chooses her setting and patiently waits for the exact conditions that reveal her subjects. Friederike von Rauch's photographs of spaces and landscapes have been exhibited widely throughout Europe, including at the Hafnarborg Museum, Kabinet van Cultuur, and Institute Vlaams-Nederlands Huis deBuren.

Museo Nacional del Prado Johannes Vermeer - Kunstenaars - Ontdek de collectie Tegenwoordig is Johannes Vermeer een van de beroemdste Nederlandse schilders uit de 17de eeuw, maar eeuwenlang was hij nauwelijks van betekenis. Het kleine oeuvre dat nu van hem bekend is, werd lange tijd aan anderen toegeschreven. Pas in de jaren 70 van de 19de eeuw werd hij herontdekt. Sindsdien zijn 35 schilderijen als 'Vermeers' erkend. Johannes was de zoon van een zijdewerker en heeft altijd in Delft gewoond en gewerkt.

BRASSAI / Biography & Images - Atget Photography.com / Books BRASSAI took his name from the town of his birth, Brasso, in Transylvania, then part of Hungary, later of Roumania, and famous as the home of Court Dracula. He studied art at the academies of Budapest and Berlin before coming to Paris in the mid-twenties. He was completely disinterested in photography, if not scornful of it, until he saw the work being done by his acquaintance Andre Kertesz, which inspired him to take up the medium himself. In the early thirties he set about photographing the night of Paris, especially at its more colorful and more disreputable levels. The results this project --- a fascinatingly tawdry collection of prostitutes, pimps, madams, transvestites, apaches, and assorted cold-eyed pleasure-seekers --- was published in 1933 as Paris de Nuit, one of the most remarkable of all photographic books. Making photographs in the dark bistros and darker streets presented a difficult technical problem. from "Looking at Photographs " by John Szarkowski BRASSAI quotes

L’artiste nous parle de sa série et de ses modèles à l’occasion de cette interview exclusive : Comment as-tu commencé la photographie ? Comment trouves-tu tes modèles ? La série Bodyscape a été sujet de discorde à propos de l’image de la femme, j’aimerais vous partager deux commentaires que je trouve très pertinents : Ashley Abney : – « Je trouve que c’est une idée magnifique… J’aimerai qu’il y ai plus de variété au niveau des modèles, par rapport à la couleur de peau et aux formes. Kirsty Clark : « – Je ne pense pas que toutes les œuvres d’arts doivent représenter toutes les personnes et toutes les formes. Photo : Anton Belovodchenko (2015)

Johan De Wilde: tekeningen The Longest Photographic Exposures in History - The Latest - itchy i The tremendous popularity of this article with more than half a million (!) clicks in one month inspired me to contact the artist Michael Wesely himself. I felt there were questions by readers which I couldn't answer correctly without talking to Michael. And I also wanted to tell him how much his worked was loved and how many people saw it as an inspiration for their own works and lives. From the many comments I learned, that many of you were astonished by the beauty of the images but also by the technical aspects of their making. The fact that the light fell for up to 3 years onto the same negative strip without over-exposing seemed just too unbelievable. But Michael confirmed that he indeed created continuous, uninterrupted exposures over those long periods of time. Michael Wesely, Palast der Republik, Berlin (28.6.2006 - 19.12.2008), © Michael Wesely, Michael wanted to highlight that he also sees those lines as an indicator for something else. And this is what he was after - details.
