Une reproduction Grand format... Actualité Cornell Capa death of the man whose vision continues to guide us today (New York, New York—May 23, 2008) Cornell Capa, visionary photographer, editor, and Founding Director of the International Center of Photography (ICP) died in New York on Friday, May 23, 2008. “The world has lost a great photographer and a great humanitarian; the world of photography has lost its greatest friend and champion,” said Willis E. Hartshorn, ICP Ehrenkranz Director.
Cornell Capa, who founded ICP in 1974, coined the term “concerned photographer.” His own photographs throughout his lifetime remained true to that mission. His respect for humanity and his desire to help better the world through photography was reflected in his images. He photographed missionaries and poverty in Latin America, and covered politics throughout the United States, including his classic studies of Adlai St...

Livre Cornell Capa: Jfk For President Cornell Capa began the 1960 campaign season as a stalwart Adlai Stevenson supporter, having closely covered Stevenson's 1952 and 1956 presidential bids for Life magazine. Then, during the Wisconsin Primary, while working on a story for Life magazine on the nature of American politics, Capa encountered John F. Kennedy. The two men immediately gained mutual respect for each other, and, after Kennedy secured his party's nomination at the Democratic National Convention, Capa decided to cover his campaign for Life. When Kennedy was elected, Capa was inspired to create a book on the first 100 days of his presidency. Capa enlisted nine fellow Magnum photographers in his effort, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliot Erwitt, and Burt Glinn. That book, titled Let Us Begin: The First 100 Days of the Kennedy Administration, was pu... Vente Photographs auction

... Festival Cornell Capa, JFK for President: Photographs by Cornell Capa International Center of Photography (ICP), New York... Exposition Peter Fetterman Gallery presents « Portraits of the 20th Century »
To look upon someone extraordinary, who has achieved greatness against great odds. To be moved by an image of one who has touched upon the lives of thousands. To seek knowledge and understanding. To find inspiration.
These are the experiences we seek when confronted by a great portrait. The figures captured in this exhibition were extraordinary, exuding character and living lives of triumph and disaster. The photographers who captured their essence, by necessity required a technical prowess but more importantly possess depth, empathy and pursue a true understanding of the human condition.
Portraits are certainly the great power in photography. They are the great confluence of documentary and artistry. Our natural voyeuristic condition draws us in and the medium allows us to feel an element of intimacy. A great... Exposition Faces of Our Times, Atlas Gallery ICONIC PORTRAITS OF POWERFUL AND INFLUENTIAL FIGURES OF THE LAST 60 YEARS - EXHIBITION OF RARE VINTAGE AND SIGNED PHOTOGRAPHS
Atlas Gallery announce an important new exhibition of rare portraits by some of the most notable photographers of the last six decades. Curated personally by the gallery's director Ben Burdett, the subjects have been chosen from the fields of politics, sport, the arts, entertainment and science.
The selection of works on show attempts to examine the way in which the camera portrait not only provides the individual with a visual memory and reference for the subjects of the portrait but in some rare cases, when reproduced enough times, provides an almost universal human record.The works chosen have been selected not only for the status and influence of the subjects but for the importance of ... Exposition Early Magnum à Londres rare prints from the Magnum archive
In February 2010 Magnum Photos announced the sale of its New York print archive to the founder of Dell computers, Michael Dell.

Exposition Cornell Capa concerned photographer Cornell Capa chose the phrase "concerned photographer" to describe those photographers who demonstrated in their work a humanitarian impulse to use pictures to change the world, not just to record it. In a long and distinguished career as a photographer, Capa (1918–2008) worked at LIFE magazine from 1946 to 1967, and for Magnum photo agency beginning in 1954, covering social and political issues in the United States, as well as England, the Soviet Union, Israel, and Latin America. While creating some iconic individual images, Capa really established his own specific areas of concern with incisive and often controversial photo-essays on health-care treatment of "retarded" children (1954), a two-part LIFE story; a cultural examination of Judaism (1954); the collapse of Juan Perón's dictator... Exposition Magnum Photos 60 years at the Stedelijk Museum Throughout that period MAGNUM never ceased to supply photographs that have become part of the world’s collective memory – pictures of landmark events like the Russian army’s invasion of Prague in 1968 and the Tiananmen Square demonstrations in Beijing in 1989. The exhibition uses photographs, books and texts to illustrate the history of MAGNUM year by year and gives visitors the opportunity to view work by 83 photographers, such as Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Carl de Keyzer, Martin Parr, Susan Meiselas and Leonard Freed.
MAGNUM was established in 1947 by Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, George Rodger and David Seymour. They were convinced that photography was the best medium with which to document world events and raise public awareness. And they succeeded – the way MAGNUM photographer...
