BRASSAI / Biography & Images - Atget Photography.com 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. Making photographs in the dark bistros and darker streets presented a difficult technical problem. When Paris de Nuit was published, the great photographer and theorist Dr.Peter Henry Emerson, then approaching eighty, wrote BRASSAI in care of his publisher, asking BRASSAI to please send his proper address, so that Emerson could send him the medal that he had awarded him for his splendid book. from "Looking at Photographs

Edouard Boubat Robert Frank / Biography & Images - Atget Photography.com Robert Frank's fine flatulent black joke on American politics can be read as either farce or anguished protest. It is possible that Frank himself was not sure which he meant. In 1956, he was still a relative newcomer to the United States, and his basic reaction might well have been one of dumb amazement as he investigated the gaudy insanities and strangely touching contradictions of American culture. It is tempting to believe that Frank's emergence in the fifties as a photographer of profound originality was a measure of his success in meeting on artistic grounds the very difficult challenge of a radically new culture. The subject matter of Frank's pictures was not in itself shocking. Frank postulated that one might with profit take seriously what the people took seriously. from "Looking at Photographs " by John Szarkowski - Robert Frank photo library - Robert Frank / recommended books The Americans Looking In: Robert Frank's The Americans, Expanded Edition Moving Out Robert Frank quotes

sarah moon, éléments de style par Henri Peyre © Sarah Moon Sarah Moon utilise le film Polaroid et la chambre photographique. Les tirages sont confiés à un tireur. Le succès de cette excellente photographe, d’abord modèle photographiant ses amies modèles puis photographe de mode, en particulier pour les campagnes de Cacharel qui lui assurèrent sa juste renommée, se fonde largement sur un style très riche et raffiné qui a toujours résisté à l’obligation des commandes. Née en 1941, dans une famille juive qui doit fuir la France occupée, Sarah Moon ne dit rien de son enfance, de ses années passées en Angleterre, de son père ingénieur, des ses quatre frères et sœurs... Pourtant l’analyse de ses oeuvres amène à penser que son enfance a été déterminante pour un art dont le style est très arrêté. Des constantes se retrouvent en effet dans ses photographies : le rapport à une nature inaccessible. Sites internet 2001-12-08/2001-12-08-254761 Livres
