Contemporary Art The self-portraits by the Japanese artist Yasumasa Morimura, Requiem for the XX Century: Twilight of the Turbulent Gods, examines an array of historical figures and political events that have been significant in shaping the 20th century. Employing his usual methodology, Morimura uses costumes, make-up and props to create unconventional and bold renderings of iconic images from history. While Morimura’s work has traditionally investigated femininity through iconic depictions of women from art history and popular culture, this body of work examines widely disseminated images of prominent masculine figures from the last century. Each protagonist or event is cast in a moment of apogee, when history is being made and visually captured.

Atget: The Art of Documentary Photography Atget made many of his most moving and meditative photographs in the last decade of his life at the parks and gardens in and around Paris. He had worked at most of them—Versailles, Saint-Cloud, and the Luxembourg Garden—since early in his career, but these late photographs have a qualitatively different sensibility: formally bold and synthetic, they are also atmospheric, mysterious, and resonant. Their significance for Atget is suggested by the separate subseries that he set up for each near the end of his life: "Versailles," "Saint-Cloud," "Sceaux," and "Parisian Parks." Saint-Cloud (Hêtre), 1919/1921, 2002.73.15 Atget made photographs of trees throughout his career, from before 1898 until a month before he died in 1927.

Spooky, Wild Scenes Straight Out of Grimm’s Fairy Tales Like a professional location scout for Grimm fairy tale movies, photographer Kilian Schönberger seeks out and explores the less-traveled regions of Europe, searching for places that test the boundaries of fantasy and reality. The results are haunting photographs that look like they were smuggled out of a dream. The resulting series is called Brothers Grimm Homeland, for which Schönberger expertly uses framing, fog and lighting to subtly suggest the fairy tales of The Brothers Grimm. He lets our imaginations do the rest. Old mill in Eastern Bavaria, Germany.

Mitch Dobrowner - Fine Art Photography Growing up on Long Island (Bethpage), NY – I felt lost in my late teens. Worried about my future direction in life, my father gave me an old Argus rangefinder to fool around with. Little did he realize what an important gesture that would turn out to be for me. After doing some research and seeing the images of Minor White and Ansel Adams I quickly became addicted to photography. To make a long story short, I left home at 21, quitting my job, leaving my friends and family to see the American Southwest for myself.
