Garry Winogrand

Imagen 468

Garry Winogrand was a street photographer from the Bronx, New York, known for his portrayal of American life, and its social issues, in the mid-20th century. Though he photographed in Los Angeles and elsewhere, Winogrand was essentially a New York photographer. He received three Guggenheim Fellowships to work on personal projects, a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, and published four books during his lifetime. He was one of three photographers featured in the influential New Documents exhibition at Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1967 and had solo exhibitions there in 1969, 1977 and 1988. He supported himself by working as a freelance photojournalist and advertising photographer in the 1950s and 1960s, and taught photography in the 1970s. His photographs featured in photography magazines including Popular Photography, Eros, Contemporary Photographer and Photography Annual. Photography curator, historian, and critic John Szarkowski called Winogrand the central photographer of his generation. Critic Sean O’Hagan, writing in The Guardian in 2014, said “In the 1960s and 70s, he defined street photography as an attitude as well as a style – and it has laboured in his shadow ever since, so definitive are his photographs of New York.” Phil Coomes, writing for BBC News in 2013, said “For those of us interested in street photography there are a few names that stand out and one of those is Garry Winogrand, whose pictures of New York in the 1960s are a photographic lesson in every frame.” At the time of his death Winogrand’s late work remained undeveloped, with about 2,500 rolls of undeveloped film, 6,500 rolls of developed but not proofed exposures, and about 3,000 rolls only realised as far as contact sheets being made.

Keith Goldstein

1

Keith Goldstein was born in Brooklyn, New York. Keith was interested in art for as long as he can remember, with his mother being his biggest influence and supporter, encouraging him in his earliest artistic endeavors. Keith’s first connection with photography came about in high school when he was given a collection of photography magazines to draw from. Instead, he began to read them, becoming extremely fascinated with the medium. It wasn’t until he dropped out of college after his second year, and was working in a warehouse, that he decided on photography as a means to creative expression. Keith began studies at night school with David Attie and moved into New York City, receiving his BFA with Honors in photography from the School of Visual Arts. It was there, working with Tad Yamashiro, that he began to experiment with a more emotive way of expression. Wanting to explore this further, Keith went on to continue his experimentation with Carl Toth at Cranbrook Academy of Art. After receiving his MFA in Photography, he moved back to New York City and began, through a course of personal experiences, to unravel everything that he knew and was for the next 15 years of his life. Keith has been exhibiting his work since 1980. His work has been published in many publications including – ABC News Australia, Now Public, Flak Magazine, JPEG Magazine, File Magazine, Snaps Magazine, SHOTS, Boulevard, Mercury Records, Diversion Magazine, Cadillac Motors, I Magazine, Penquin/Putnam, Simon & Shuster, St. Martin’s Press, and on many book covers. Keith’s tools to finding his place and exploring his feelings towards the world have always been simple – one camera and a couple of lenses. “Being unencumbered does allow you the most freedom”, he says. Keith has been making his living as fine art photographer, a stock shooter, a corporate event photographer, and a photo editor.

Ben Shahn

http://retrophoto.nnm.ru

Ben Shahn was born in Kaunus, Lithuania in 1898. He emigrated to New York with his family in 1906. He became a lithographer’s apprentice after completing his schooling. He later attended both New York University and the National Academy of Design from 1917 to 1921.

In the 1920s Shahn became part of the social realism movement. Social Realism is a term used to describe the works of American artists during the Depression era who were devoted to depicting the social troubles of the suffering urban lower class: urban decay, labor strikes, and poverty. His early work was concerned with political issues of the time, while his later work portrayed the loneliness of the city dweller. Text and lettering formed an integral part of his designs and his work was often inspired by news reports. After working in lithography until 1930, his style crystallized in a series of 23 paintings concerning the Sacco-Vanzetti trial. Shahn came to prominence in the 1930s as with “The Passion of Sacco and Vanzetti”. Shahn dealt consistently with social and political themes. He developed a strong and brilliant sense of graphic design revealed in numerous posters. His painting Vacant Lot (Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford, Conn.) exhibits a poetic realism, whereas his more abstract works are characterized by terse, incisive lines and a lyric ic intensity of color. The Blind Botanist (Wichita Art Mus.) is characteristic of his abstractions. Shahn’s murals include series for the Bronx Central Annex Post Office, New York City.

From 1933 to 1938 he worked as a photographer for the Farm Security Administration, producing masterful images of impoverished rural areas and their inhabitants. Shahn used photographs throughout his career for both composition and content. The photographer position at the FSA was a dream job for Shahn because it provided him the opportunity to travel though Depression-era America taking pictures. He later used those photographs for his paintings years later. Critics in his time felt that using photographs for paintings diminished the value of a painting. However, Shahn’s work became the most popular artist of his age. His work was on the cover of Time and well as the Museum of Modern Art.

Shahn has been described as a man of uncompromising beliefs and an artist who spoke to the world. Shahn continuously adopted new themes and mediums to define the human condition of his time. Active until the end of his career, Shahn was also a distinguished lecturer, teacher, and writer.

Social Photographer. Currently based at El Salvador 13°40′, -89°13′

Passionate for capturing the unseen and the cotidiane in different social contexts such as Streets, Public Transportation, Rural Scapes and the intimacy of People’s Lives.

I’ve defined myself as a Social Photographer with the help of my peers all over the globe.

Social Photography for me is an organic blend with hues of:

– Street Candid Photography
– Street Portrait Photography
– Documental Photography
– Photojournalism

There is no exact recipe for this, so the projects and essays may taste more like one thing than the other.

Gaining trust on People is the most powerful tool for capturing great stories.

This is Vasil Boglev’s sitehe does work in black & white and color. Some of his main topics are: Australia, Macedonia, World, and Choices. These are very impressive shots. They all tell a story in a single click of the shutter. That is what I find so amazing about photojournalism, is that an entire story can be seen in a glimpse. One photograph can be studied and interpreted several different ways by different people

Chinatown, Franck Bohbot

1

Located in southern Manhattan, Chinatown has evolved over time, expanding at a rapid pace due to its growing population, by nibbling on the borders it shares with the Lower East Side and devouring Little Italy. The Chinatown in Flushing, Queens, is currently the most populated. Still today, a large part of Chinatown operates with a parallel economy. In the 90s, the Chinese community began to invest in other neighbourhoods in the Lower East Side, which Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe had populated fifty years earlier. Currently, the Lower East Side is predominantly a Puerto Rican and Dominican community, although the Chinese have definitely made their mark in recent decades. In this series, Franck Bohbot took an off-beat approach to this bustling “Chinatown” cliché.

These shots embrace the absence of typical daytime noise, deliveries, lively streets, and tourist visits. Silence reigns.

Half-way between poetry and science fiction-like movie sets, through this nocturnal series with New York City as the sole backdrop, he invites us to discover an empty, motionless neighbourhood devoid of its inhabitants. Deserted streets, and the rare, almost UFO-like passerby dropped on quasi-unreal urban sites, resemble fiction more than typical photographic reporting. Marrying colorimeter and urban lighting, combining technique with photographic patience, and wanting to bring life to nighttime characters or basic storefronts were all challenging. With his camera by his side, some images were shot instinctively while others are more contemplative. The result is an enigmatic voyage that creates a pictorial and fantasy-like universe in the thick of night. 

Clemens Kalischer

Clemens Kalischer immigrated with his parents to Paris from his native Bavaria in 1933, when Hitler came to power, and then to the United States in 1942. After studying photography at Cooper Union and the New School for Social Research, he worked as a photojournalist for the French Press news agency and for Coronet magazine. By 1949 he was a successful freelance photographer and photojournalist, with work published in such magazines and newspapers as the New York Times, Newsweek, Time, Fortune, Du, and in the alternative press as well, including In Context and Common Ground. Kalischer’s architectural photographs have appeared in Architectural Forum, Urban Design International, and Progressive Architecture. He has operated the Image Gallery in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, for more than thirty years, and maintains an archive of some 500,000 stock photographs, supplied to publications worldwide. As both photographer and teacher, he works extensively with institutions such as Bennington and Hampshire colleges, Georgetown, and Harvard. Kalischer has been an active member of One by One, an international dialogue group for survivors and perpetrators of the Holocaust that seeks emotional healing.
Kalischer’s work extends the tradition of photojournalism inspired by Henri Cartier-Bresson and André Kertész. His recent interest in agriculture, architecture, education, the environment, music, religion, and socioeconomic matters, however, adds a level of personal dedication to his images that pushes his body of work beyond its aesthetic precedents.

Jerome Liebling

Jerome Liebling (1924-2011) grew up Brooklyn, New York, a first-generation son of Jewish immigrants from Europe. His father supported the family as a waiter. During World War II, Liebling served in the 82nd Airborne – surviving eight major offensives in the notoriously deadly glider infantry. Liebling enlisted to fight for a cause he believed in but returned from military service with a staunch anti-war sentiment that endured his entire lifetime. Back home in 1946, he enrolled at Brooklyn College under the G.I. Bill, studying design with the painter Ad Reinhardt and photography with Walter Rosenblum.

In 1947, Liebling joined the Photo League, a socially minded photographers’ cooperative, where, along with Paul Strand, W. Eugene Smith, Lisette Model and Aaron Siskind, he took to the streets of NYC to focus his lens on hidden corners of urban life. But perhaps the most edifying tenets of his creative vision were born on the depression-era streets of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. Growing up a child of the Depression formed an impulse throughout his career, Liebling said, to “figure out where the pain was, to show things that people wouldn’t see unless I was showing them
