Exposition : Art and industryNearly all of the 54 pictures in this exhibition were taken in the first 60 years of the last century, but they seem to come from an even more distant past. It was a time when big factories, big ships, gib dams and big electromagnetic turbines were exciting and admired technology ; it is very different with the present era of miniutarizationand digitals sognals stored in ethereal clouds. As is usual with the gallery's theme shows, some of the works are by famous photographers such as Life magazine Margaret Bourke-White, whose pictures of scattered "wing nuts" is in a series of five images of mass produced objects.

This group exhibition of vintage 20th century Industrial Photography shows the life of men working in the industry at a time where economic growth was important.

Quand la danse rencontre la photographieLe mouvement et son abscence. La danse et la photographie. Deux formes d'art de prime abord incompatibles. Et pourtant, elles sont réunies à Huis Marseille pour l'exposition : Dancing Light, Let it move.
Cette exposition révèle le pouvoir ultime de la photographie, celui d'immortaliser pour toujours un moment. Là où la danse se termine une fois la chorégraphie terminée, le cliché, lui reste à jamais. Il sacralise l'instant pour le graver dans notre mémoire. Il transforme même notre interprétation de l'expérience. Dancing Light fait honneur à ce principe. Les photographies de Naoya Ikegami du danseur de Buto Kazuo Ohno semblent le parfait exemple de ce mélange parfait entre danse et photog...
Herbert Matter black and white photographs
Gitterman Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of black and white photographs by Herbert Matter. The exhibition will open with a reception on Wednesday, January 22, from 6 to 8 p.m. and continue through Saturday, March 22.

“We have to make Vogue into a Louvre.”
Edward Steichen to Edna Woodman Chase, 1920s
These words said by Steichen to the first editor in chief of Vogue aptly summarized the revolution started by Condé Nast, both in fashion as well as in photography more generally, when the publisher acquired the prestigious Vogue masthead in 1909. From then on, the story of fashion was no longer told exclusively in delicate nineteenth-century illustrations, but also by great international photographers with creative license. Edward Steichen was one of the first photographer to shoot for Vogue, accepti...
