Footography.

New York, Manhattan

Hi,

In my aim to get this blog up and running again I have decided to start with this image. A well known landmark from New York. The Empire State Building. During frequent visits many years ago that was my main subject for my photography. This is one of the images I like the most. It was not made in an ordinary way, let me tell you. It is no secret. I tripped my small camera, a Minox 35, on my foot. Like this illustration below. It was late afternoon and I needed to steady my camera. People passing by was looking at me wondering what I was doing, though this was NY. Nothing surprises. This was the result from four exposures, I think. I think I could not have made it better aiming with my hands and eyes. Or, what do you think? Without metadata on my film I think it was during the late 70´ or early 80´s.

: ) greetings Pelle

Rare photographs that changed lives

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.

My first view of China

On my first trip to China recently I took some personal photographs. Very much street photography. China is a very interesting graphic country. What the signs say I don´t know, but I like the looks of them. The images below are mostly from the streets and I can imagine keep right and left…
