Aperture is pleased to present the elegantly updated and refreshed Henri Cartier-Bresson edition of the Aperture Masters of Photography Series. With an introduction by notable curator Clément Chéroux, this edition includes new, image-by-image commentary and a chronology of this influential and iconic artist's life. Initially presented as the History of Photography Series in 1976, the first volume of the Masters of Photography Series featured Cartier-Bresson and was edited by legendary French publisher Robert Delpire, who cofounded the series with Aperture's own Michael Hoffman. In this redesigned and expanded version of the classic Aperture book, we have kept the majority of the selection of images from the original series which Cartier-Bresson himself created with Delpire, encapsulating the spontaneity and intuition for which this legendary photographer is so celebrated.

The Mind's Eye

Writings on Photography and Photographers

Author: Henri Cartier-Bresson,Michael L. Sand

Publisher: N.A


Category: Photography

Page: 109

View: 9828

The first compilation of writings by a master of photography. One of the leading lights in photography of the twentieth century, Henri Cartier-Bresson is also a shrewd observer and critic. His writings on photography and photographers, which have appeared sporadically over the past forty-five years, are gathered here for the first time. Several have never before appeared in English. The Mind's Eye features Cartier-Bresson's famous text on "the decisive moment" as well as his observations on Moscow, Cuba, and China during turbulent times, which ring with the same immediacy and visual intensity that he brings to his photography. Cartier-Bresson remains as direct and insightful as ever in his writings. His commentary on photographer friends he has known-including Robert Capa, André Kertész, Ernst Haas, and Sarah Moon-reveal the impassioned and compassionate vision for which Cartier-Bresson is beloved.

Born in 1908 in France, Henri Cartier-Bresson is considered to be the father of modern photojournalism. Early on he adopted the versatile 35mm format and helped develop the popular “street photography” style, influencing generations of photographers that followed. In his own words, he expressed that “the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which, in visual terms, questions and decides simultaneously. . . . It is by economy of means that one arrives at simplicity of expression.” In 1947 Cartier-Bresson founded Magnum Photos with four other photographers. August 22 will be the 100th anniversary of his birth.

Die Entdeckung des völlig im Verborgenen entstandenen Werks der 2009 im Alter von 83 Jahren verstorbenen Vivian Maier ist eine photohistorische Sensation. Aus Frankreich stammend, verdiente Vivian Maier ihren Lebensunterhalt in den 50er und 60er Jahren als Kindermädchen in Chicago und New York. Auf eigene Rechnung und Gefahr und außerhalb jeder Öffentlichkeit führte sie eine Art Doppelleben als Street Photographer. Ihr Entdecker John Maloof legt ihr Werk in unserem Buch erstmals einer staunenden internationalen Öffentlichkeit vor. Einige der Photographien wurden kürzlich in Deutschland in der Galerie von Hilaneh von Kories in Hamburg gezeigt.

The Age of the Avant-Garde


Author: Hilton Kramer

Publisher: Transaction Publishers

ISBN: 1412808340

Category: Social Science

Page: 565

View: 3690

This comprehensive book collects a sizable selection of his early essays and reviews published in Artforum, Commentary, Arts Magazine, The New York Review of Books, and The Times, and thus constituted his first complete statement about art and the art world.The principal focus is on the artists and movements of the last hundred years: the Age of the Avant-Garde that begins in the nineteenth century with Realism and Impressionism. Most of the major artists of this rich period, from Monet and Degas to Jackson Pollock and Claes Oldenburg, are discussed and often drastically revaluated. A brilliant introductory essay traces the rise and fall of the avant-garde as a historical phenomenon, and examines some of the cultural problems which the collapse of the avant-garde poses for the future of art. In addition, there are chapters on art critics, museums, the relation of avant-garde art to radical politics, and on the growth of photography as a fine art.

On Slowness

Toward an Aesthetic of the Contemporary

Author: Lutz Koepnick

Publisher: Columbia University Press

ISBN: 0231538251

Category: Philosophy

Page: 352

View: 8527

Speed is an obvious facet of contemporary society, whereas slowness has often been dismissed as conservative and antimodern. Challenging a long tradition of thought, Lutz Koepnick instead proposes we understand slowness as a strategy of the contemporary—a decidedly modern practice that gazes firmly at and into the present's velocity. As he engages with late twentieth- and early twenty-first-century art, photography, video, film, and literature, Koepnick explores slowness as a critical medium to intensify our temporal and spatial experiences. Slowness helps us register the multiple layers of time, history, and motion that constitute our present. It offers a timely (and untimely) mode of aesthetic perception and representation that emphasizes the openness of the future and undermines any conception of the present as a mere replay of the past. Discussing the photography and art of Janet Cardiff, Olafur Eliasson, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Michael Wesely; the films of Peter Weir and Tom Tykwer; the video installations of Douglas Gordon, Willie Doherty, and Bill Viola; and the fiction of Don DeLillo, Koepnick shows how slowness can carve out spaces within processes of acceleration that allow us to reflect on alternate temporalities and durations.

Sherlock Holmes in Rio

Rio de Janeiro, Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts. Zunächst ist nur die kostbare Stradivari verschwunden, die Kaiser Dom Pedro seiner Geliebten geschenkt hat – ein peinliches Malheur, nicht mehr. Um das wertvolle Stück wiederzubekommen, empfiehlt Schauspielerin Sarah Bernhardt, die gerade ein glänzendes Gastspiel in Rio gibt, ihren Freund Sherlock Holmes. Kein großes Problem für einen Detektiv seines Kalibers ... In Brasilien angekommen, stürzen sich Sherlock Holmes und Dr. Watson sogleich in die Lustbarkeiten der Belle Époque und erleben die sinnlichen Freuden der Tropen am eigenen britischen Leib. Was den Meisterdetektiv nicht daran hindert, sich vor den Einheimischen und Normalsterblichen mit seiner verblüffenden Kombinationsgabe zu brüsten. Als in den Straßen Rios aber ein Serienmörder umgeht, wird auch ihm die Einsicht beschert, dass südlich des Äquators begangene Verbrechen nicht mit einem »Ganz einfach, Watson« zu lösen sind ... »Sherlock Holmes in Rio« ist ein schwungvoller und fesselnder Roman, mindestens so sehr satirische Gesellschaftskomödie wie konventioneller Krimi – »ein prickelndes Divertimento, das keine weiteren Ansprüche erhebt.« (Neue Zürcher Zeitung)
