The Getty Museum is on a fashion tear. Coming on the heels of the Herb Ritts exhibit (til Aug 26) , and recent Irving Penn retrospectives, this addition of the modern master Hiro, continues to enhance their reputation in the photographic fashion arena. Now let’s see if they will ever do a general fashion photography […]
Ahhh, the Getty! They have stepped up their photographic game once again, with this brilliantly curated exhibit of Herb Ritts: LA Style photography and motion work. This fashion photography master of the last part of the century, gets a full examination from his first portrait, to his magnum opus, fine art images. Curator Paul Martineau, […]
The BauHaus Design School, although open for a relatively short time, 1919-1933, was a swirling collection of artists and designers whose influences are still strongly felt today. Of course, you are familiar with the photographic work of László Moholy-Nagy. As a professor at the BauHaus, his work influenced more that just the students. Lyonel Feininger, […]
We’re just about there. When Sony announced that they would be supplying the next gen iPhone with an 8MP camera, how many camera manufacturers said “Gulp” ? Forget those Wi-Fi SD cards or other transmission solutions, the smart phones in your hands now are just screaming ahead and getting better.
Just some fast notes on photo things we’ve seen in the past week. New product: Joby Gorillamobile. This item takes care of a few of our needs in one handy set-up. First of all, it includes the much needed bumper for our iPhone, insuring better reception. Being a bumper, it keeps the phone pretty slim. […]
We’d like to offer this book again as a giveaway this week, since the exhibit will be closing in a few weeks, and for those who never got the chance to see it. The catalog of the show has so much more that what is on the walls, that we think it’s part of the […]
The human condition can be a brutal thing. Or a thing of beauty. There is a poetic manner in which photojournalists approach their subjects, and tell you the story. When you can look beyond the single image, usually highlighted for titillation or shock, there is a deep river of thought and story to be told […]
A few weeks ago we attended a series of photography exhibit openings, with each having a distinctly different flavor. One had the au courant provocative series of large color images, another gallery featured a historical bent, with black and white images of US history. Both of these shows came with a price list, and books […]
And we’re talking about some rich color. Tri-Color, Pigment Printing. Known as Carbro prints, these vivid images were made popular by a very few photogs. The expense for each print was a prohibitive $150. per. Of course, that was in the 1920′s. In my college days, studying the various print processes was part of the […]
Actually , you should be doing that with every part of your life, but today lets just talk about the slightly sedate experience of visiting a museum. Oh, sure, you walk around, maybe get a “gut hit” from a few pieces, or recognize work from advertising that promoted the show. A little snack, a visit […]
Last Saturday night the folks behind the Lucie Awards, the Oscars of Photography, debuted their latest love letter to photography: MOPLA, or Month of Photography in Los Angeles. With 2 galleries exhibiting work, B+ spinning ,and libations flowing long and strong, the celebration got a solid turnout at Bergamot Station, with the crowds maneuvering to […]
