Livre Bill Owens A black-and-white photograph captures a woman, curlers in her hair and a baby in her arms, standing in a messy kitchen and saying, "How can I worry about the damned dishes when there are children dying in Vietnam?" California photographer Bill Owens is best known for his critically acclaimed series Suburbia, which was published as a monograph in 1972, and has long been considered one of the classic photo books of the era. For this influential and evocative project, Owens simply shot friends and acquaintances in his Livermore, California, neighborhood and allowed them to speak for themselves. Ordinary people had rarely been so riveting.
A comprehensive monograph, this volume consists of several sections of work from 1969 to the present, opening at the height of flower power, with images of the Beat generation, ... Exposition PDNB Gallery presents « Summer Time : And The Living is Easy »
"What good is the warmth of summer without the cold of winter to give it sweetness." John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley, In Search of America

As Steinbeck described, we do have an extra special summer ahead to savor.
Images of beaches, swimmers, campers, vacation spots, bathing suits or no bathing suits, all befit the iconic summer respite.

Galerie Alex Daniels - Reflex Amsterdam... Exposition Reality Revisited : Photography from the Moderna Museet Collection Curator: Anna Tellgren
The exhibition Reality Revisited includes more than 300 photographs from the 1970s, all in the Moderna Museet Collection of photography. It gives us a look into several realities, the lives of famous photographers and their views on life and art. The featured photographers represent classic black-and-white photography. They have used the medium in various ways to develop their own expressive style through the photographic image. Postwar street photography and subjective photography were seminal to the photographers whose careers began in the 1960s and peaked in the 1970s before the breakthrough of postmodern photo-based art in the early 1980s. The title, Reality Revisited, refers to the way these photographers frequently used, or returned to, their own reality as a starting point. Many of them s... Exposition Bill Owens - America fast forward No photo album is more symbolic of 'the American way of life' than Suburbia by Bill Owens (1938 San Jose, California) published in 1973. It is a visual report of the social revolution that took place after World War II, when middle class America started moving in huge numbers from the busy city centres to the suburbs. Suburbia is the work of an insider, for Bill Owens himself moved to one of these prefab suburbs in the early seventies, a young newly wed pioneer. He noticed the changes around him and realized how drastically different this 'fast forward' consumption society would be. He captured his new world in primarily black and white 'photo essays' with laughing, hard working Americans that were enjoying there leisure time. Clean houses, neat gardens, kitchens equipped with the latest gadgets. The car well polished in...
