Photographers: March – May

Posted by CWade in Photographers Series | Tagged | 2 Comments
Readers, it’s time for another installment of M45‘s Photographers series. This one verges on becoming a novel, as quite a few months have elapsed since last time (February). I love writing this series, though, because it focuses my attention on finding and digesting [what I think is] great photography.
Enough chatter! First up is-
  • Adam Ekberg calls his work “calculated performances that intersect with photography’s documentary potential,” and while it’s true that his photos are staged (with precision), I think he creates ‘arranged’ photography very successfully:

 

  • Toby Burrows‘ current exhibition “Fallen” shows dramatic, masterful image manipulation:
Finally,
  • Anastasia Cazabon‘s most recent, two-chaptered project “From The Secret World” contains images which convey a mysterious sense that something- and the viewer is never quite sure what- has just happened:

      Bob,My New York rep recently asked me secpifically about why people buy photographic prints of other people whom they do not know, and who are not celebrities. I had to think about it for a while, and think about who buys my prints that fit that category, and I realized that people buy paintings and sculptures, and sing songs and recite lines from movies, that feature representations of people they don’t know all the time. So, I suggested to her that people who like art, and recognize photography as such, are the people who buy my prints and books.So, while photography can be an art form, I think the fact that a similar product could be more of a journalistic device, or a record NOT beyond documentation, means that its acceptance or recognition as art is, as you say, still evolving. (And I still prefer Steiglitz, Weston, Adams et al over Frank, Arbus, Friedlander and Richardson and the snapshot aesthetic. But then I’m an old fuddy duddy.)
