Spotlight on Adrienne Grunwald !

Spotlight on Adrienne Grunwald ! | Photographers & Photo projects | Scoop.it

This image is part of a series about professional female footballers (soccer players) in Brazil. The series is titled “Guerreiras” which means “female warriors” in Portuguese. In short, the project seeks to highlight how women’s football in Brazil is gradually starting to move from the margins towards the mainstream of Brazilian culture and the tensions that accompany these shifts.

THEORY NOW: Orders of Photographic Identity Construction

THEORY NOW: Orders of Photographic Identity Construction | Photographers & Photo projects | Scoop.it

An examination of orders of photographic identity construction featruing three images from 1864, 1865 and the 1950s.

In 1865, photojournalist Alexander Gardner had six of the accused Lincoln conspirators brought up on the deck of the USS Montauk, an ironclad monitor anchored in the Potomac River, and posed them for a series of famous photographs. Irrespective of their historic value, these photographs additionally reveal Gardner’s desire for an “artistic” expression in his photographic work. The accused men were dressed in coats and ties, hair combed and styled, then positioned against the iron turret for the various shots.

Catherine Opie is no relation.

Kourtney Roy and Lady Dior

Kourtney Roy and Lady Dior | Photographers & Photo projects | Scoop.it

“The Lady Dior series projects a sense of ambiguity and pending calamity. The images are framed in such a way that the viewer can only glimpse at the subjects in a voyeuristic way. I am quite fascinated with staging my own death. By orchestrating and controlling my own suicides I confront directly the primitive and ageless mystery which haunts humanity, sublimating the obsessive fear of the inevitable. As for the Lady Dior bag’s iconic status, it lent itself easily to the idea of a woman obsessed by the idea of keeping her most precious worldly possession with her, even in death.“

Alec Soth: “I want to photograph your dog” — Off Center — Walker Art Center | Photographers & Photo projects | Scoop.it
