L'insensé - British photographers
Les Beatles et les Rolling Stones, Oxford et Cambridge, Shakespeare et Agatha Christie, qui dit mieux ? Conduite à gauche, première femme Premier Ministre, non à l?euro... oui à la différence ! Alors, la photo dans tout ça, une institution ou une nouvelle donne ? Même s?il est audacieux et vain de vouloir désigner un style photographique anglais, il se dégage à travers ce choix d?images que nous publions comme un parfum culturel des plus insensés. Nous retrouvons les thématiques britanniques que l?on connaît si bien : ce goût raffiné pour la nature, le théâtre, les mises en scène élaborées, l?humour, la critique sociale...Ainsi, en ouverture de la revue, Tim Walker nous donne à...
FORMA presents "Fashion, A century of extraordinary fashion photography" from the Condé Nast archives
On Wednesday, January 16, 2013, at 6:30PM, the Fondazione Forma per la Fotografia, will present the opening of the exhibit Fashion. A century of extraordinary photography from the Condé Nast archives.
“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...
COLOUR à la Michael Hoppen GalleryHow do you describe colour?
Even the dictionary definition of it is poetic:
'That aspect of things that is caused by differing qualities of the light reflected or emitted by them, definable interms of the observer or of the light.'
'a substance, such as a dye, pigment, or paint, that imparts a hue.'
'a reddening of the face; a blush'.
The scientific words to objectify it are beautiful too: hyperchromatism, wavelength, luminance, iridescence and purity.
Since 1861 and the first permanent colour print by James Clerk Maxwell, photographers have been able to define their subjects in a more immediate and creative way using colour- stripping it out, intensifying or limiting it. The Michael Hoppen Contemporary Christmas show about a group of artists who utilize cyan, magenta, yellow and black i...
FASHION 9 decades of fashion photography
Gallery Camera Work in Berlin presents from September 20th until November 15th an exhibition of fashion photography of the 20th and 21st centuries. This group exhibition provides a representative overview of the development of fashion photography from its beginnings in the 1920s to the present time. With over 250 works of a total of 65 photographers - many of which are vintages - one can trace the different trends of fashion photography.
The spectrum of the photographs on display ranges from the sometimes classic compositions of an Edward Steichen to the experimental photographs of Man Ray, from the sexual revolution to the resulting emancipation of women as shown for example by Helmut Newton, from the cool elegance of the 1990s - influenced by Peter Lindbergh - to the highly imaginative works of a Tim Walker. On...
Fashion in the mirror self-reflection in fashion photography
The international photographers in this exhibition undress the theatre of fashion and question the creation of perfect beauty. Fashion in the Mirror is an overview of their self-examination and a rare look behind-the-scenes of fashion photography from the 1950s to the present day.
Finding both comedy and poetry in the set-up of the studio, the exhibiting photographers turn their cameras on the processes and paraphernalia of the fashion shoot. Photographers become mirrored in their own work and, as viewpoints are inverted and gazes misdirected, cameras stare back out at us expectantly.
Revealing the fashion industry’s secrets and undermining its glamorous illusions, the photographers in this exhibition create work that exposes this world from within.
