“Why black and white?” I think it’s because I grew up in a black-and-white world. Television, movies and the news were all in black and white. My heroes were in black and white and even the nation was segregated into black and white. My work’s an extension of the world that I grew up.” Cole Thompson

The image is spirit, matter, time, space, time for eyes. Traces are tests of ourselves and the sign of a culture that lives constantly rhythms that govern memory, history, standards of knowledge.” – M.Giacomelli

Daido Moriyama (b.1938, Osaka) is one of Japan’s leading figures in photography. Witness to the spectacular changes that transformed post WWII Japan, his black and white photographs express a fascination with the cultural contradictions of age-old traditions that persist within modern society. Providing a harsh, crude vision of city life and the chaos of everyday existence, strange worlds, and unusual characters, his work occupies a unique space between the objective and the subjective, the illusory and the real. Moriyama’s use of a small hand held automatic camera gives his images a loose and casual aesthetic, undermined by a forceful and decisive point of view. – Extract : Luhring Augustine

Capitolio is documentary photographer Christopher Anderson’s cinematic journey through the upheavals of contemporary Caracas, Venezuela, in the tradition of such earlier projects as William Klein’s New York (1954–55) and Robert Frank’s The Americans (1958). It presents a poetic and politicized vision, by one of todays finest documentary photographers, of a city and a country that is ripping apart at the seams under the stress of popular unrest, and whose turmoil remains largely unreported by Western media. No stranger to such fraught situations (he covered the 2006 conflict between Hezbollah and Israel from its inception), he notates the country’s current incongruities, where the violent and the sensual intermingle chaotically. “The word ‘capitolio’ refers to the domed building that houses a government,” he writes, elaborating on the title of this volume; “here, the city of Caracas, Venezuela, is itself a metaphorical capitolio building. Decaying Modernist architecture, with a jungle growing through the cracks, becomes the walls of this building and the violent streets become the corridors where the human drama plays itself out in what President Chavez called a ‘revolution.’” X

‘Photo Curations’ (Blog) : Top Photography Series

::

::

I’m currently collecting all the best photography series from this website and posting them on a new blog called “Photo Curations”. There’s a couple of reasons for this, for example, it’ll be easier to view and access series via thumbnails and be able to view all the images on a white background
