Part II” (1991) Part II (This is the second of a two-part essay on the work of Garry Winogrand.) By Carl Chiarenza The Unflattering Family Album ICP alumni Giulia Bianchi ponders on the need to raise the camera in front of our own normalcy and failures. Tonight, however, I am restless. I sit at the dining-room table; rummage through the refrigerator. What am I looking for? All day long I’ve been scavenging, poking around in rooms and closets, peering at their things, studying them.

Ansel Adams Adams fotografeerde in de jaren 1944-1958 de nationale parken en kreeg daarvoor drie Guggenheim-prijzen. Hierdoor kreeg hij naam als de bekendste natuurfotograaf van Amerika. Hij kan hierbij terecht worden gezien als de opvolger van Timothy O'Sullivan, een bekend natuurfotograaf uit de 19e eeuw. Werken[bewerken] Zijn bekendste werk is waarschijnlijk Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico uit 1941 (Museum of Modern Art, New York). Informatie is uit Adams boek uit 1983: Examples: The Making of 40 Photographs.

Tierney Gearon Photography The Mother Project - Tierney Gearon Photography Exhibition Tierney Gearon’s photographs have been called manipulative, disturbingly ambiguous, even perverse; the London police demanded that the Saatchi Gallery which first showed the offending photos of her young children take the pictures down. Tierney has always maintained she loves her subjects deeply and understands them better than anyone else. How could she not? The Photo Art Journey Gregory Crewdson’s large format creations set in American suburbs overflow with suspense and with the use of soundstages, lighting cranes and crews of up to forty people, his productions sound more like Hollywood movie sets. (click images to enlarge, believe me its worth it!) His cinematic images feature subjects in almost suspended animation, capturing the flicker of a moment between the before and the after. Crewdson takes this moment of catatonic confusion and extends it infinitely exploring themes of loneliness, alienation, sadness and desire. Crewdson photographs his subjects in a never-ending state of shock and the combination of their vacant faces with unnatural posing makes them seem more like props than actual people.

The undiscovered street photography of Vivian Maier In 2007, Chicago Realtor John Maloof paid $400 at an auction for a storage locker filled with rolls of undeveloped film. He was searching for photos for a book project about his Chicago neighborhood of Portage Park. In a moment straight out of an episode of "Auction Hunters," Maloof discovered a treasure-trove of thousands of negatives that turned out to be from a nanny who took up street photography in her spare time yet kept most of her work hidden. The photographer was Vivian Maier.

La violence conjugale vue par six femmes photographes Hier, vendredi 25 novembre, c’était la journée internationale contre la violence faite aux femmes. Si la parole se libère peu à peu sur le sujet dans les médias, il est très difficile de l’illustrer en photographie. Pourtant, par le passé, six femmes photographes ont levé le voile sur ce tabou. Parfois, le travail de toute une vie. Donna Ferrato est une photojournaliste américaine engagée, durant toute sa carrière, dans la lutte contre les violences conjugales. Son travail documentaire a été réuni dans un livre : « Living with the enemy« , édité en 1992 par la Fondation Aperture.

Portfolio - Stephan Vanfleteren Façades & Vitrines reportage August Landmesser, The Man Behind The Crossed Arms The photo above has floated around the internet for a few years now, popular for one of its subjects’ subtle yet profound acts of nonconformity. There is no telling how many men in that crowd were acting out of fear, fully aware that failing to salute the Fuhrer was akin to signing his own death certificate. Knowing that it was, in fact, Hitler standing before the crowd makes the disobedience all the more admirable, but what may seem like an act of justified transgression was at its core a gesture of love. August Landmesser, the man with his arms crossed, was married to a Jewish woman.

Before They Pass Away by Jimmy Nelson The Gorgeous Daily Browse: Home / Photography / Before They Pass Away by Jimmy Nelson Enlaces Before They Pass Away by Jimmy Nelson The Photo Art Journey Gregory Crewdson’s large format creations set in American suburbs overflow with suspense and with the use of soundstages, lighting cranes and crews of up to forty people, his productions sound more like Hollywood movie sets.

It is this disjointedness to the surreal environments they are photographed in that creates drama, keeping the visual narrative created going.
