Erich Hartmann a 16 ans lorsqu'il arrive en 1938 avec sa famille à New York. L'approche poétique des sciences, de l'industrie et de l'architecture d'Hartmann lui valent des publications majeures. Invité à rejoindre Magnum en 1952, il en devient président en 1985.
Livre Erich Hartmann « Our Daily Bread » Kehrer Verlag
« The product of eight years of thought and work, Erich Hartmann's Our Daily Bread is his lyrical tribute to the men and women everywhere whose daily work helps to create the bread which feeds us all and which has become a metaphor for sustenance. His photographs make a picture-poem of the significance of bread to us all » Ruth Bains Hartmann
Magnum photographer Erich Hartmann's long-term project shows the human work involved in making Our Daily Bread.
On a photographic trip across America in 1954, Erich Hartmann first became aware of the vast American Midwest grain belt, spending some time in a small Oklahoma town called Freedom.

... Exposition The Abstract Art of Erich Hartmann at the CLAIR Galerie
Throughout his 50-year career Erich Hartmann was known as a photojournalist, a member of Magnum. However, his own business card read simply "Erich Hartmann, Photographer", he saw pictures everywhere and was never without a camera. In addition to his essays and reportage for publications and corporations world-wide he pursued, from his earliest days in photography, private photographic passions and obsessions - his vocation was also his avocation.
Here is a small selection from a few of these projects, some of which grew out of insights he gained on particular assignments, others were photographic problems he wished to solve. The abstract images were made by refracting a laser beam onto a smooth surface, resulting in complex designs of great variety. The images of laser li...
