France: Christine TURNAUER The Dignity of Gypsies and a Tribute to my Gypsy Friends

 This exhibition The Dignity of Gypsies gathers photographs taken by Christine Turnauer between 2011 and 2016, initially in India – to where we can trace back the roots of the Gypsies, then in Eastern Europe, where her travels took her to Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Kosovo and Montenegro. The different trades photographed create a bridge between the Indian nomads and the Gypsies of Eastern Europe. All her travels have given rise to inspiring and moving photographs.

On the second floor, this exhibition also presents a Homage to my friends Gitanos with photographs taken mostly in Arles in 2019. During her “Presence” exhibition staged as a co-production between KLV Art Project and the City of Arles’ Culture department in Saint Anne’s Chapel in 2018, the photographer Christine Turnauer forged friendships that inspired her to make a tribute to her friends Gitanos from Arles and the Camargue in this retrospective exhibition of her work on the Gypsies presented at the Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation from April to June 2022.
This personal exhibition brings together almost 125 black and white photographs over the Foundation’s three floors.

Christine Turnauer’s photographs on Gypsies were previously presented for the first time in Austria at the Forum am Schillerplatz in October 2017, with the release of her photo book “The Dignity of Gypsies” published in two languages (English, German) by Hatje Cantz in Europe in 2017 and D.A.P Publishing for the United States in 2018. This book, as well as some collector’s prints, were also exclusively presented in San Francisco (2018, KLV Art Project) and Shanghai (2018, KLV Art Project).

Greece: Portraits at Blank Wall Gallery

The international group exhibition "Portraits" opens on Friday, February 11 at Blank Wall Gallery. Portraits of people from all over the world will be presented as seen by the photographers through the lens of their camera. The true image of people, the image of their soul and their true character is depicted on these photographs. Often people, despite their objections and suspensions, relax and allow to be photographed, even for a moment. These photos are what appeals both to the artist who took them and to the viewers who see them. The photographers who took these portraits, managed in an instant to capture a different side of the people they photograph. The image we see is the truth of the artist, what he saw and captured at that moment. The result is often very different from the image that the person has of himself, but this is also the magic element of the portrait.

"Portraits" will be on display at the Blank Wall Gallery from February 11 until February 23. We will be glad to see you.

All About Photo Awards 2022 - The Mind's Eye is Open!

 


MORE INFORMATION HERE 

Our 7th edition of the All About Photo Awards invites photographers from around the world to submit their best work for consideration. In reference to Henri Cartier-Bresson's photo essay, The Mind's Eye investigates the depth and thoughts behind each image.

"To take photographs means to recognize - simultaneously and within a fraction of a second - both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one's head, one's eye and one's heart on the same axis".
Henri Cartier-Bresson

Winners will receive $10,000 in cash awards, extensive press coverage and global recognition.
The grand prize is $5,000, the 2nd prize is $2,000, the 3rd prize is $1,500, the 4th prize is $1,000 and the 5th prize is $500!

Paris: Masterworks of Modern Photography 1900-1940

 The Thomas Walther Collection 

In 2001 and 2017, The Museum of Modern Art in New York acquired more than 350 photographs from the collector Thomas Walther. This collection, which is now one of the pillars of MoMA’s modern collection, is presented for the first time in France in an exhibition of some 230 images.

Lotte (Eye) 1928 MAX BURCHARTZ


Comprising iconic works from the first half of the twentieth century, the exhibition provides a history of the European and American photographic avant-gardes. Through the works of a hundred or so photographers, from Berenice Abbott to Karl Blossfeldt, from Claude Cahun to El Lissitzky, from Edward Weston to André Kertész, this fusion of masterpieces and lesser-known images traces the history of modernity in photography. Mixing genres and approaches—architecture and urban landscapes, portraits and nudes, reportage, photomontage, experimentation, etc.—the exhibition delves deep into the artistic networks of the inter-war period, from the Bauhaus to Surrealist Paris, via Moscow and New York.
In their visually radical inventiveness, these images capture perfectly the utopian spirit of those who wanted to change images in order to change the world; now we fully understand the words of the photographer and theoretician Lázló Moholy-Nagy who, a century ago, stated that «the illiterate of the future will be ignorant of the camera and the pen alike.».

From 14 September 2021 to 13 February 2022
