Galerie Maeght : Olivier Dassault, Language de Mur

Galerie Maeght : Olivier Dassault, Language de Mur | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Olivier Dassault’s photographs will be on show at Galerie Maeght until 5 December. If there is one thing that can’t be denied about Dassault, it is his love – indeed his passion – for photography. I remember seeing him take his first images to Roger Therond and Eric Colmet D’Aage at PHOTO in 1975. He’s been published five or six times. My favourite images are the wonderful nudes of Anne Parillaud in April 1982.

Taryn Simon, A polite Fiction at the Fondation Louis Vuitton

Taryn Simon, A polite Fiction at the Fondation Louis Vuitton | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Underneath layers of cement and drywall in the Fondation Louis Vuitton is a message in green permanent marker on concrete: “Oubliez la terre. Elle ne vaut pas le coup . . . à moins que vous soyez là pour me sauver” (Skip earth. Not worth it . . . unless you’re coming to save me). 
In A Polite Fiction, artist Taryn Simon maps, excavates, and records the gestures that became entombed beneath – and within – the Fondation’s surfaces during its five-year construction. Simon collects this buried history and examines the latent social, political, and economic forces pushing against power and privilege.

While 2013 marked Paris Photo’s first U.S. edition in Los Angeles, the Parisian art fair has been held in Paris since 1997, annually luring the world’s top photography collectors to the historic Grand Palais. Today, as 169 galleries and art book publishers convene in Paris for the 18th edition of the fair, we offer a look at 11 must-see works—from Chris McCaw’s sunburnt photograph made in the arctic circle, to a rare piece of a triptych by Francesca Woodman—that, like the fair, represent some of the most innovative and intriguing photography being exhibited today.

Arles 2014 : Nos coups de Coeur - Léon Gimpel

Arles 2014 : Nos coups de Coeur - Léon Gimpel | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Paris, August 1915: men are at war and women  are working. Far from their parents, the children of the rue Greneta play at battle. Equipped with only his camera and the inspiration of a few Poulbot drawings, Léon Gimpel faced this army of kids. From this encounter in the heart of the Sentier neighbourhood was born a series of staged photographic tableaux, alternating between colour (autochrome) and black and white. As the days went by, Léon Gimpel and his army of kids developed a kind of typology in miniature of images of the Great War. Almost all the archetypal scenes are represented .It is not death that Gimpel and the army of the rue Greneta playact, but heroism, courage, and the victory of the children of France.

Paris: Interview with Jean Noël de Soye & Hanane Hilmi, Galerie In Camera

Paris: Interview with Jean Noël de Soye & Hanane Hilmi, Galerie In Camera | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

When we opened the gallery five years ago, we already knew each other. Hanane had been representing my work as a photographer. Then the idea came to us: why not do the same for other photographers? But we needed a place to do it. The way we imagined it has little in common with what it has become today. Personally, I thought I would be working as both a photographer and a gallerist, but the latter quickly overtook the former. Hanane had a clearer idea of how much work it would be, having already worked in a gallery. We opened with a small catalogue of photographers, mostly friends, like Jane Evelyn Atwood and Gueorgui Pinkhassov. Then, little by little, the catalogue grew.

Berlin : Fred Stein In an instant

Berlin : Fred Stein In an instant | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Fred Stein (b. 1909 in Dresden, Germany — d. 1967 in New York) has not received the attention he deserves. In his lifetime, he photographed the who’s who of the 20th century in his two adopted cities: Paris and New York. His lack of renown owes itself in part to his death before the surge of interest in photography in the 1970s.

Photo Series Compares Modern-Day Flooding in Paris to Great Flood of 1910

Photo Series Compares Modern-Day Flooding in Paris to Great Flood of 1910 | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

More than 100 years ago, the Seine River rose a record breaking 8.6 m above usual levels, causing the catastrophe known as the 1910 Great Flood of Paris. Over the past week, as the picturesque streets of the French capital city began to submerge once again, artist Julien Knez was struck by the similar atmosphere of fear and awe brought on by water slowly creeping up over the river’s embankments. This time around, though water levels peaked at 6.07m, Knez images demonstrate the striking similarities between eras as the landmarks of Paris are transformed by river swell, back in 1910 and now in 2016.

Contemporary art - Mark Lewis - Invention at the Louvre

Contemporary art - Mark Lewis - Invention at the Louvre | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

From his earliest work in the 1990s, the art of Mark Lewis seems to have traveled backwards through the history of images. Painting, photography, and cinema engage in silent conversation in his films.

By referring to the Lumière brothers, the Canadian artist places optical exploration at the heart of the artistic experience. A new temporal space is created, where the paths of the eye and memory, the blended times of moving images, and the internal durations of perception all intersect.

Melvin Sokolsky

Melvin Sokolsky | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

This iconic Bubble series was created by fashion photographer Melvin Sokolskyfor the Harper’s Bazaar 1963 Spring Collection.

Haunted by a particular image from Hieronymous Bosch’s ‘The Garden of Delights,’ Sokolsky experienced a re-occurring dream in which he saw himself floating inside a bubble across exotic landscapes. Inspired, he quickly used the idea for the series. The Bubble was crafted to emulate a Faberge Egg, for which Sokolsky had great admiration for its design and workmanship.

As a reporter for the agency Sipa press from the 1970s to the present day, Yan Morvan photographed young people in the suburbs of Paris: rockers, rappers, punks, dealers, rioters. With Kizo, Morvan turned the photographs into the nefarious book Gangs Story, which led to a costly trial following a complaint by a nasty right-wing extremist.
