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.

Vivian Maier | The Nanny's Secret | By William Meyers Gregory Crewdson | 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 images, besides being visually captivating are almost technically flawless with Crewdson using a variety of light sources and styles ranging from diffused to spotlighting to envisage his idea.

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. After scanning a few of the images Maloof quickly realized he stumbled onto something remarkable. More than 100 of her photographs are on display at "Vivian Maier — A Life Discovered: Photographs From the Maloof Collection" at the Merry Karnowsky Gallery in L.A. "It's a history of America at a certain moment, previously unavailable, seen through new eyes," said actor and photographer Tim Roth, who selected the images along with gallery owner Karnowsky. -- Liesl Bradner The exhibit runs through Jan. 28.

Portfolio - Stephan Vanfleteren Façades & Vitrines reportage Jay Maisel Photography | Limited Edition Prints and The Jay Maisel NYC Photography Workshop 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. The story of August Landmesser’s anti-gesture begins, ironically enough, with the Nazi Party. In 1934, Landmesser met Irma Eckler, a Jewish woman, and the two fell deeply in love. In court, the two claimed to be unaware of Eckler’s Jewish status, as she had been baptized in a Protestant church after her mother remarried.

Amazing 19th Century Photographs of the American West by Timothy O'Sullivan Photographer Timothy H. O’Sullivan is perhaps best known for his photos of the Civil War, which include his famous “Harvest of Death” photo. But after covering the war, O’Sullivan decided to strike out West, and when he came back, he brought with him some of the earliest photos of the (quite literally) “wild” American West. O’Sullivan’s explorations of the American West were done as part of different US Government-funded expeditions. Afterwards, in 1870, he joined a survey team in Panama to survey for a canal across the isthmus, and then spent 1871 to 1874 in the southwestern United States, surveying west of the 100th meridian West under Lt. O’Sullivan was one of the first to document the prehistoric ruins and pueblo villages of the Southwest. Fortunately, thanks to the Library of Congress, we have access to many of these photos. Sadly, O’Sullivan lived a short life, dying of Tuberculosis in 1882 at the age of 42, shortly after returning from the southwest.
