Jarrett Murphy Landscape Photography - nuit, lumière Home The Downside of Art Going Viral West Point photographs by Kristine Potter in her Greenpoint studio, 2010 (photo by the author for Hyperallergic) I first encountered Kristine Potter‘s work in her studio in Greenpoint in 2010. I remember her West Point series, known as The Grey Line, which consisted of large black and white images of cadets at the military academy. Kristine Potter (photo courtesy the artist) Potter, who still lives and works in Brooklyn, comes from a family of military men, so the project was very personal. Then, last week, Buzzfeed writer Gabriel H. The comments on the Buzzfeed article don’t come across as particularly offensive compared to the usual banter and taunts found online, but they were enough for Potter to request that the images be removed.

About Tim | Tim Hetherington Trust British, 1970 — 2011 Tim Hetherington’s mission to create a better understanding of the world cast him in many roles: photojournalist, filmmaker, human rights advocate, artist and a leading thinker in media innovation. After graduating from Oxford in 1992 with a degree in Classics and English he began a deep exploration of visual media as a tool to explore and communicate the issues that fascinated him. With a second degree in photojournalism from Cardiff University (1997) he worked initially for the UK press and soon branched into international coverage. Working and living in Africa for many years he explored the consequences of conflict and quickly came to document conflict itself before delving deeper to understand the origins and causes of violence. This and other work took him around the world, including a year-long study of American fighting forces in Afghanistan from 2007 to 2008 and ultimately to Libya where he was killed in a mortar attack in April 2011.

Des projections publiques nocturnes L’artiste et photographe français Philippe Echaroux utilise un projecteur pour placer des images lumineuses géantes sur des bâtiments, des arbres et/ou des espaces publics qu’il photographie ensuite en pose longue pour créer des oeuvres de street art temporaires et invisibles. [Via] Pieter Hugo Carl Kleiner fleurs installations Chanel / No 5 - Ylang ylang, neroli, lemon, iris, vanilla, sandalwood and amber. Collaboration w. ANDREW STELLITANO Lucien Clergue, photographe Lucien Clergue est né à Arles en 1934, il est décédé le 15 Novembre 2014. Il apprend le violon avant de se consacrer entièrement à la photographie. Ses premiers travaux sont marqués par la mort, les bombardements, il photographie les charognes des bords du Rhône, les corridas. Puis ce sera les nus de la mer, les paysages de Camargue et les éléments qui la compose: l’eau, le sable, les herbes, les signes du vent. Ses rencontres avec Cocteau puis avec Picasso en 1953 seront décisives. Une amitié très forte liera les deux hommes jusqu’à la disparition du maître en 1973.
