Photography: loving the camera at the NPG

Photography: loving the camera at the NPG | Master Photographers | Scoop.it

It has taken 180 years but the National Gallery has finally recognised photography as an art form and organised an exhibition to mark this mind-shift. Seduced by Art: Photography Past and Present doesn’t go as far as laying out a survey of photography, from Fox Talbot to Andreas Gursky by way of Nadar, Weegee, Arbus, Penn… (where do you stop?).

REVIEW: Thomas Struth at Marian Goodman Gallery (2014) - Since 2008, AMERICAN SUBURB X | Art, Photography and Culture that matters. | Master Photographers | Scoop.it
“How should we judge what we see?” It’s a question posed to dramatic effect by a series of mostly large-scale photographs created by the iconic 59 year-old German photographer Thomas Struth, now on view at the Marian Goodman Gallery in mid-town Manhattan.

Bill Brandt's Negative Beginnings

Bill Brandt's Negative Beginnings | Master Photographers | Scoop.it
A MoMA exhibit of Bill Brandt’s photography emphasizes the primacy of the print in understanding his work, as he moved from favoring grays to stark blacks and whites.
mrstock's insight:

To really understand Brandt’s work, you have to turn to the original, vintage prints, and that’s exactly the goal of “Shadow and Light,” a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art. 


Go and see the show!  It's the last week - finishes 11th August 2013

Mario Pires's curator insight, June 10, 1:59 AM

Why should photographers read theoretical books ? Are they essential ? Could you do without them all together ? I have my answers, you should get yours, perhaps not in this article, but everyone who cares about images should read beyond how-to's and tutorials.

MoMA | Reconsidering Bill Brandt
mrstock's insight:

MoMA’s new book Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light by Sarah Hermanson Meister, curator in the Department of Photography at MoMA, is a fresh look at the work of an iconic British photographer. The exhibition currently on view isn’t the first time MoMA has presentedBill Brandt’s work to the public—the last Brandt retrospective was in 1969. Since then, the Museum’s perspective of Brandt’s work has evolved into a more complete consideration of the nuances and variations in Brandt’s own photo-historical approach.
