Andre Kertesz / Biography & Images - Atget Photography.com Perhaps more than any other photographer, Andre Kertesz discovered and demonstrated the special aesthetic of the small camera. These beautiful little machines seemed at first hardly serious enough for the typical professional, with his straightforward and factual approach to the subject. Most of those who did use small cameras tried to make them do what the big camera did better; deliberate, analytical description. Kertesz had never been much interested in deliberate, analytical description; since he had begun photographing in 1912 he had sought the revolution of the elliptical view, the unexpected detail, the ephemeral moment ___ not the epic but the lyric truth.

The extraordinary story of Erwin Blumenfeld The pioneering fashion photographer Erwin Blumenfeld pushed the boundaries in his art and in his life. Tamsin Blanchard recounts his extraordinary story. BY Tamsin Blanchard | 18 May 2013 Lisa Fonssagrives on the Eiffel Tower, 1939, Paris, by Erwin Blumenfeld. August Sander. (German, 1876–1964) German photographer. After seven years as a miner and a period of national service, he studied painting in Dresden from 1901 to 1902, which allowed him to approach photography artistically. He had developed an interest in photography through work in photographic firms in Berlin, Magdeburg, Halle and Dresden from 1898 to 1899.

Annie Liebovitz Born in 1949 in Waterbury, Connecticut, Annie Leibovitz enrolled in the San Francisco Art Institute intent on studying painting. It was not until she traveled to Japan with her mother the summer after her sophomore year that she discovered her interest in taking photographs. When she returned to San Francisco that fall, she began taking night classes in photography. Time spent on a kibbutz in Israel allowed her to hone her skills further.

Robert Frank Robert Frank's fine flatulent black joke on American politics can be read as either farce or anguished protest. It is possible that Frank himself was not sure which he meant. In 1956, he was still a relative newcomer to the United States, and his basic reaction might well have been one of dumb amazement as he investigated the gaudy insanities and strangely touching contradictions of American culture. A similar shock has been experienced by many others who have been suddenly transplanted as adults to this exotic soil. A few artists and intellectuals have even managed to turn the experience to their creative advantage, if their direction had not yet been too firmly set, as though a new country might be a substitute for being born again. Holden Luntz Gallery Gilbert Garcin’s meditative images are striking in their symbolic power and their skillful blend of humor and gravity. Through Garcin’s poetic and philosophical scenes, he enables us to become better observers of our human condition; he speaks of all people while he tells of himself. By considering the hidden side of life and raising questions concerning aspects of life, such as the transience nature of our existence or the tenacity one needs to keep going, Garcin uses himself as a model of the everyman to present a resource for meditation on life’s little absurdities and the significance of the human condition. These profound and masterful compositions are from a Marseilles lamp factory owner who first delved into the photographic arts at the age of 65. It was at this late time that he met photographer Pascal Dolesmieux at a workshop in Arles and Dolesmieux immediately sparked Garcin’s fascination with photography by tutoring him in the trade.

Robert Frank "The Americans" "Rodeo-- New York City, 1954. By photographer Robert Frank. "Indianapolis" from The Americans by photographer Robert Frank. From "The Americans" by Robert Frank. Trolley-- New Orleans, 1955 by photographer Robert Frank. In Memory of Photographers We Lost in 2011 They went by several different names. James Atherton was a “news photographer” while Tim Hetherington preferred “image maker.” We just call them photographers. They make images, yes, often connected with the news. But they actually record the world–in all of its beauty, horror, pain and confusion–at a particular time and place. For three of the photographers who were killed covering the civil war in Libya this year, the uprising to oust Muammar Gaddafi was far from their first experience in combat.

STEVEN KLEIN STUDIO In between songs, Gaga offered some playful, theatrical banter in her best whispery-baby Marilyn Monroe impression. She made sure to point out her genuine pleasure in seeing in the balcony collaborator Tony Bennett (with whom she’s releasing an album of duets with later this year), and director/photographer Steven Klein, who was behind her “Alejandro” video. She climbed a rose-draped ladder to Tony at one point and later remarked on how moving it was to see her dad and Steven Klein meet and hug backstage.
