GARRY WINOGRAND: “Standing on the Corner – Reflections Upon Garry Winogrand’s Photographic Gaze – Mirror of Self or World? Part II” (1991) Part II (This is the second of a two-part essay on the work of Garry Winogrand.) By Carl Chiarenza Originally Published in IMAGE Magazine: Journal of Photography and Motion Pictures of the International Museum of Photography at George Eastman House, Volume 35, Number 1–2, Spring-Summer, 1992 About looking and watching. It is the group of photographs represented in Women are Beautiful that I see when I hear Winogrand’s name. Of all his books, this is the only one, to my knowledge, that is a result of Winogrand’s own editing. I realize that, as Szarkowski has written, this book was received poorly by critics and photographers, and “in retrospect” apparently by Winogrand himself, and that “In general, women disliked the book and men were mystified by it, demonstrating that an artist’s enthusiasms can muddle even the most basic of issues.”2 I am also aware that Winogrand’s daughter called it the work of a male chauvinist pig. About 1960 Winogrand had begun to photograph women on the street.

SEISMOGRAM 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. Introduction In Larry Sultan’s book Pictures from Home, we see family snapshots mixed with texts and pictures that the son took of his parents, a wealthy American couple in their 1970s living in Palm Springs, a suburban town in the West Coast of America, during the Reagan era.

Many of the women assumed their male identities from an early age as a way to avoid the old codes that governed the tribal clans, which stated that women were the property of their husbands. Peters explains, The freedom to vote, drive, conduct business, earn money, drink, smoke, swear, own a gun or wear pants was traditionally the exclusive province of men. Thus, Peters wanted to capture this fading tradition before it disappeared forever. I learned that the Burrnesha are well respected within their communities. Wikipedia has an entire article regarding Albanian sworn virgins, in case you’d like to learn more about this practice. Sworn Virgins of Albania by Jill Peters (via Feature Shoot)

faustine ferhmin | Perception Park faustine ferhmin faustine ferhmin, dans la série intitulée , photographie l’espace. le terme fait signe vers un temps plus vaste que celui de l’histoire humaine : il signifie «révolution, bouleversement» (cuti) de l’«espace-temps» ou de la «terre» (pacha). cette notion centrale dans la pensée cosmogonique inca désigne les cycles réguliers de destruction et de recréation cataclysmiques du monde. même si les ruines sont présentes sur ces photographies, prises au pérou, ce n’est pas une approche d’historienne qu’adopte faustine ferhmin : chaque photographie est plutôt une confrontation avec une immensité abrupte, dont les spécificités géologiques participent à une véritable architecture de l’espace. {*style:<i> </i>*}{*style:<i> </i>*}{*style:<i> </i>*}{*style:<i> </i>*}{*style:<i> </i>*}{*style:<i> </i>*}{*style:<i> </i>*} faustine ferhmin est née en 1980, elle vit et travaille à paris. www.faustine-ferhmin.com

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? Buy the book on Amazon.com Excerpt from the Forward to the Book When I first saw the images from Daddy Where are you? “My mother had no boundaries,” she said in speaking of her childhood with her father and three younger brothers in Atlanta, Georgia. Now the mother of four children — Emilee, Michael, Walker, and Grace — Tierney wanted to resurrect parts of her own past, and in doing so she was able to discover her own growth process. “When I started documenting times with my mother, it felt good to be able to express what I was feeling inside and translate it. – Susan M.

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).

Vivian Maier | The Nanny's Secret | By William Meyers The Beautiful Gene : Marina Rosso The Beautiful Gene In September 2011, Cryos International, the world’s biggest sperm bank, stopped accepting red haired donors for a period: demand for them was too low compared to the supply. Single women, who currently represent half of the customer base, tend to select donors based on the search for a “dream prince”. As a provocation to this system, I decided to act as a conservation geneticist who would classify the genetic variation of a species in the first step to preserve its diversity and components.
