From Pablo Picasso to Catherine Deneuve: the... | Master Photographers | Scoop.it

I first heard that the National Portrait Gallery was planning an extensive exhibition devoted to the photographic portraits of Man Ray’s early last year whilst judging a London photography competition; and it instantly became an eagerly (for me at least) anticipated exhibition — and this morning the long wait was over, when I was lucky enough to see this comprehensive show ahead of its public opening tomorrow.

'Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light' at MoMA - New York Times

'Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light' at MoMA - New York Times | Master Photographers | Scoop.it
TIME 'Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light' at MoMA New York Times All told the show provides a sweeping view of Brandt's sensibility, his wide-ranging subject matter, his obsession with the printing process as an essential part of the photographer's art...
mrstock's insight:
Totally awesome. One of the three seminal retrospectives of Brandt's work. Two of them by MoMA and one by The Bill Brandt Archive organised by John-Paul Kernot. What is not appreciated is how many fabulous images are left out of this stunning show. Go see it.

Probably. I would imagine all still photos will soon come from HD video frames which might actually bring back immediacy. As of now, photographers are painting their photos and painters are painting their painting their photos. The documentary photo fixit still exists is merely a stepping stone to another story.
Mario Pires's comment, January 8, 2013 7:20 AM
We perceive reality very differently than in the the 50's and back. We probably see more pictures everyday than people in the 40's saw in years, there is no going back. Authors will use the imagery they find fit for the story they wish to tell.
