I celebrate that today, on this very day 41 years ago, I photographed Chet Baker at the Fasching Jazzclub here in Stockholm. Some of those images can be seen at my exhibition at Fasching today and until April. I have added the review at the bottom, to be read in Swedish.
Fasching is at Kungsgatan 63, Stockholm
I haven´t posted anything here for a very long time. Perhaps today´s post will be a change for the better.
These images could be selected for the 2019 calender. A project I have made for about 20 years together with my dear friend Peter Schaeublin in Schaffhaussen, Switzerland. And the Stamm printers. The calendar has always been a giveaway and is not for sale.
Horses and jockeys, off course. But there would be no races without starters. They assist the jockeys in loading the horses into the boxes and they help calming some nervous horses. Here are e few images from yesterdays races, and some of the starters at Bro Park. It is always such an inspiration to go there.
Twenty-four photographs from the Lewis Hine archive have been auctioned in New York. The rare prints were from the collection of the late New York photographer Isador Sy Seidman.
American sociologist Hine was one of the most important documentary photographers of the 20th Century. Because the notion of photojournalism and documentary did not exist at the time, Hine called his projects “photo stories”, using images and words to fight for the causes he believed in.
The prints span Hine’s career and many are from his most well-known projects, centring on the poor and disadvantaged from the Carolinas, New York and Pittsburgh.
