Movers and image-makers: a masterclass in fashion photography from Nick Knight | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it
Fashion photography is a genre that continues to elude itself.

As the worlds of fashion and fine art have grown closer and closer together, the line between the two has become increasingly faint and has given way to a new generation of photographers who move effortlessly between the two worlds, creating some of the most exciting fashion images today.

When Photography Becomes a Weapon

When Photography Becomes a Weapon | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

Photography has been used in many ways throughout its history: as documentation, propaganda, keepsake, etc. But never has it been so frequently used as a weapon as in the Information Age.

video: Garry Winogrand in action | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

Garry Winnogrand’s contribution to street photography (he hates the term) is immeasurable and paramount. At the time of his death, he had 2,500 rolls of film undeveloped and 6,5000 developed but not yet proofed. Simply put, he was prolific with an undeniably unique vision. He also seems like he would be an entertaining person to have drinks with. Shot in the ‘70s, this video follows Winnogrand around Venice Beach as he takes photos and discuses his approach to photography.
