      SFMOMA’s sprawling new photography survey, turns the high powered gaze of the camera onto itself, exploring over a century of peeping, spying, monitoring, snooping and all other forms of illicit looking facilitated by the handy-dandy technology of the lens. It’s an impressively researched archive of images that is as prescient as it might be paranoid. And like most brilliant exhibits, it elaborates on a simple historical premise: the invention of the gelatin dry plate which... [more]

        There were two things I dreamed of becoming when I grew up that, now in 2010, are as preposterous a prospect for me as princess or astronaut might have been when I was 8. One of them was a bush pilot. Another was a photojournalist. The Magnum . Shifting Media . New Role of Photography exhibit – one of the last to be shown in C/O Berlin’s current home in the stunning Postfuhramt in Mitte – was a bittersweet reminder to me that my second dream didn’t come true, in a way,...

Henri Cartier-Bresson: Revisiting Old Friends   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Henri Cartier-Bresson at The Art Institute of Chicago July 25th, 2010 - October 3rd, 2010
Posted 8/9/10
          Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004) took photographs for publication in the periodicals of his time. He went from place to place, subject to subject, image to image, rarely exercising control—or seeking to exercise control--over what was done with his photographs. Through much of his career, Cartier-Bresson dispatched exposed film to Magnum, his photo agency, which developed, edited, and sold the images. Sometimes he sent exposed film with captions to the magazine that had given... [more]
Same Places, Different Views   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans at Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson September 10th, 2008 - December 21st, 2008
Posted 12/7/08
  This small exhibition brings together two of the great photographers of the twentieth-century, and offers a rich experience of their mutually-influenced work. Walker Evans and Henri Cartier-Bresson were great admirers of each other's work and certainly, for all the differences of their approach to photographing America, the impact of the one on the other is clear from this exhibition. The exhibition focuses on the years of the depression and World War II, and the now well-known... [more]
Monroe Misses   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Richard Avedon, Peter Blake, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Allen Jones, Bert Stern, Andy Warhol at Chicago Cultural Center July 19th, 2008 - September 21st, 2008
Posted 8/11/08
Heading into at Chicago’s Cultural Center I pretty much knew I wasn’t going to like it. But the promise of seeing work by Pop Art icons Andy Warhol, Mel Ramos, Peter Blake, Allen Jones and Richard Avedon made it seem worth the visit. The Cultural Center’s website touts it: “The diversity of the collection allows the viewer to enjoy and remember all the facets of this charismatic star, as well as explore more deeply her tender vulnerability. Having traveled in six countries in Europe prior... [more]
