London as seen by homeless photographers – in pictures

 

A great idea with some great photos.

I found the article in The Guardian.

Long ago

I made this series of posters. And it was long ago. Then what did I do? Nothing much. It is that long ago that I spelled my name with a hyphen.

Don´t miss!

I am afraid I will, and I am very sorry for that. If you live close enough you SHOULD go there. Paul Biddle is a very good friend of mine, and one of the best photographers that I know. And know of. He has the gift to always creating interesting and surprising images from his imagination.

Photography  is also, among many other things, capturing dreams. Seeing the inner vision and to let that come out. Paul is one of the best. I am sure that he and his colleagues will create a wonderful exhibition that will open up your fantasy as well. Go see!

Bruce Davidson.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/in-sight/wp/2016/09/15/the-unforgettable-images-of-legendary-photographer-bruce-davidson/?hpid=hp_no-name_photo-story-b%3Ahomepage%2Fstory

Photographer Bruce Davidson was shooting scenes of urban poverty on East 100th Street in New York, when a woman asked him why he was there. When he said he was shooting images of the ghetto, she responded, “What you call a ghetto, I call my home.”

Davidson, a member of the Magnum Photos collective, worked hard to balance the dire situations that residents lived in with moments of beauty and resilience. It was also a common thread throughout his life’s work. No matter the situation, Davidson’s subjects maintained their inalienable right, as humans, to dignity. This is apparent in Davidson’s book, “Bruce Davidson” (Prestel, May 2016), a collection of his most important work including the civil rights era, the subway, a circus and a Brooklyn gang.

While Davidson could take a photo in an instant, reform came slowly. “[My work] doesn’t change anything overnight,” he said via email, “No matter how long I photographed on East 100th St., it wasn’t going to change that fast.”

And I wonder, where are they now? What happened to their lives?

But why!

This photograph kicked me in my stomach and it hit my heart. Like the one with the child drowned on the beach. Or too many others of the same subject. I feel ill and helpless. Why do people have to fight over land, race, religion. Or other stupid things? I have just sent a small donation to Doctors Without Borders. Can you? Or any other organization that you think can help.
