Stieglitz Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O'Keeffe, 1931 Georgia O'Keeffe, From the Faraway, Nearby, 1938 The Figure 5 in Gold is one of a series of eight abstract portraits of friends that Charles Demuth made between 1924 and 1929, which were exhibited at Alfred Stieglitz's gallery 291. This particular painting pays homage to a poem by William Carlos Williams: The Great Figure by William Carlos Williams Among the rain and lights I saw the figure 5 in gold on a red fire truck moving tense unheeded to gong clangs siren howls and wheels rumbling through the dark city Alfred Stieglitz, Looking Northwest from the Shelton, 1932 "Crammed on the narrow island the million-windowed buildings will jut glittering, pyramid on pyramid..."

It takes a little imagination and lots of measuring, but no matter how limited your space, it is possible to fit in a home library. Some questions to ask to help you plan a library for a new house or already built home: Do I want a library because I need a place to house my books or simply as a decorative element?

L'enchaînement de deux concours et un nouveau job ont eu raison de mon agenda et du temps que j'aurais souhaité consacrer à mon blog. Petit flashback : nous sommes le 17 janvier et à vue de nez (gelé), il fait aux environs de -5° dans la capitale danoise. Jacob Holdt, Mary all dressed up in her old shack, Perote, AL. 1975. Si j'ai décidé de revenir sur cette expo, c'est tout d'abord parce que le travail de Holdt m'a totalement acquise à sa cause et aussi parce que le photographe danois est en ce moment même exposé en France, au festival ImageSingulières de Sète jusqu'au 30 mai prochain.

Q & A with Marissa Roth « kathleenclarkexposed Over the course of my editorial career, I had the pleasure to work with photo journalist Marissa Roth on several occasions, primarily in accessing photographs from her book “Real City: Downtown Los Angeles Inside/Out” on Angel City Press. Her documentary work has taken her far beyond her California roots, however, from Kosovo to Pakistan. Roth was part of The Los Angeles Times Pulitzer Prize winning photography staff covering the 1992 Los Angeles riots. While working for publications such as The New York Times, Newsweek, Time and Paris Match she has photographed earthquakes, an attempted coup in the Philippines, as well as the first post-communist elections in Hungary. This burned-out home still sits on a ridgeline in Srebrenica Municipality, Bosnia and Herzegovina, on May 16, 2009; 15 years after the war ended there. What made you pick up a camera in the first place? As a child, I had always been creative – drawing and painting. Vietnamese refugees who came by boat to the Philippines.

peinture | The Swedish Parrot | Page 3 Lorsque j’étais à l’intérieur du baptistère San Giovanni de Florence avec ses mosaïques de style byzantin représentant le Christ du Jugement dernier entouré des neuf représentants de la hiérarchie céleste(1), je me suis posé une question. Mais d’abord, je me suis laissé envahir par la beauté du lieu. Je pense que ce baptistère est un des lieux les plus magiques de l’histoire de la chrétienté, et malgré ses dimensions beaucoup plus modestes que le Duomo(2) voisin, il n’en reste pas moins un lieu magnifique. Ses mosaïques dorées sont baignées d’une lumière irréelle et donnent au visiteur une sensation de majesté écrasante, ce qui est le lieu commun des œuvres sacrées. On doit s’y sentir petit, un tremendum(3) tout puissant vous étrillant les entrailles… Ensuite je me suis posé une question. Florence - Baptistery San Giovanni (interior) in Florence Donc, pour moi, le livre est un support qui vient aider la compréhension. Alors j’en prends mon parti à présent.
