I Love Paris in The Springtime

Well, who does n´t? I have just spent a few in the city attending the Gourmand World Cookbook Summit. Spring happened to be there too. Always inspiring. Of course I managed to get some pictures from the Eiffel Tower.  Here is a small selection for you.

Only one image is made with my phone…

It has been too long since I last wrote here and showed some images. It will not take that long before next time. More from Paris coming up.

A picture a day…

Perhaps it keeps the doctor away. His wife will know.

Great images by and a fine story about Robert Miller.

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!

Essential Elements

Or perhaps human patterns. Any way it is very interesting what a curious and sensitive eye can see from above. Another reason to go to London.

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?

Could be…

Perhaps there will be a calender for the year of 2017. My friend Peter Schäublin, of Schaffhaussen, Switzerland and I have produced one every year since 1998. Missing only two years. Peter is an exceptional graphic designer, and a photographer himself. These are the first outlines.

Images from my “Used gloves collection”.

What do you think?
