Yes, Jimmy Graham did actually bend the goalpost.
“this leaves men confused and unable to pigeonhole you. What they are forced to do instead is… take you seriously.”
Alain Delon, 1962
02, Osamu Yokonami
Attracted to the expressiveness of the group, Japanese photographer, Osamu Yokonami, created these stunning photographs. By dressing the depicted girls in the same clothes, he manages to create a simplicity, letting the existence of each girl disappear and emphasizing the group that appears instead. By photographing the group in nature, the beauty as a collective entity begins to stand out. The girls become one, and leave the impression that we are not seeing many different girls, but one girl in different stages of a single movement.
El Ojo de Gió (The Eye of Gió), Gió Palazzo
El Museo de la Palabra y la Imagen (The Museum of Word and Image) presents The Eye of Gió, an exhibition captured by the humanist and photojournalist Giovanni Palazzo, who documented the intense and historical moments experienced in El Salvador in the 80’s.
During the years of the civil war, Giovanni Palazzo was part of a group of journalists who made a record of faces, events and landscapes with their cameras, while covering various historical events in Central America.
The Italian photojournalist returns to El Salvador to deliver a valuable archive composed of 6,000 images, as a result of his work made in El Salvador in 1980 and developed until the security forces captured him and deported him from the country in 1989.
What if famous photographs were actually taken as “Selfies”? Lowe South Africa ran an award-winning print advertising campaign for the Cape Times newspaper featuring a wartime kiss between a sailor and young woman in Times Square, Manhattan, Winston Churchill, Jackie and John Kennedy, Prince William and Kate Middleton at their wedding, and Beyers Naude and Anglican Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu celebrating Tutu’s Nobel Peace Prize.
“You can’t get any close to the news. The Cape Times. Know all about it.”
"Thirty years of work on the African continent have carried Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher across 270,000 miles and through remote corners of 40 countries in exploration of more than 150 African cultures. In the process, this team of world-renowned photographers has produced 15 widely acclaimed books and made four films about traditional Africa.
While the lifeways they document may appear timeless, these committed explorers are driven by a sense that they work against the clock. They view Africa’s traditional cultures as threatened, the ancient ways in danger of being lost in a vast melting pot of modernity. According to Fisher and Beckwith: ‘These unique cultures possess a wealth of knowledge that should be celebrated, shared, and honored. It is our life passion to document and create a powerful visual record of these vanishing ways of life for future generations.’”
