Brattell - aka ZETETIC -The first Zetetics were the follower of the
philosopher Pyrrho (c.365-275 B.C.E), generally regarded as the first Systematic
Sceptic. He showed that by 'suspending judgement', by confining oneself
to 'phenomena' or 'objects as they appear', and by 'asserting nothing definite'
as to how they really are, one can escape the perplexities of life and
attain an 'imperturbable peace of mind'. To this end he assembled arguments
showing that things-in-themselves are 'indistinguishable, imponderable
indeterminable'. What a dude!

Tillmans, the first German-born artist, and first photographer,

museums, archives and libraries in the Netherlands. The catalogue encompasses
more than 3,700 portraits, city views and landscapes from the pioneering
period 1839 -1860. These photographs were taken in the Netherlands,
France, England, Germany and the United States by both Dutch and foreign
photographers. Famous images by photographers such as Eduard Isaac

Dutch artist Rineke
Dijkstra has gained international acclaim for her penetrating photographic
portraits of adolescents, teenagers, and young adults that combine formal classicism
with brooding psychological intensity. Her Beachseries, begun in the Netherlands
in 1992, captures the quiet vulnerability and youthful innocence of 18 adolescent
boys and girls from Belgium, Croatia, England, the Netherlands, Poland, the
Ukraine, and the United States. Each subject is photographed on the beach in
full figure in his or her bathing suit with only the uninterrupted horizon
of sea and sky as background. Unlike a conventional portraitist who seeks an
idealized representation, Dijkstra teases out a naturalistic, uncomposed demeanor
from her subjects.

But these are not her pictures; this is her enormous project on Kurdistan: Aka
The site creates a living archive from scattered fragments, pulling together
never-before exhibited photographs from private collectors, family collections,
and national archives. Juxtaposing unforgettable images with text from diaries,
newspaper stories, memoirs, and
telegrams, Kurdistan: In the Shadow of History lets history speak for itself
through the words of freedom fighters and farmers, missionaries and spies,
diplomats and princes. In bringing together these dispersed pieces, Susan Meiselas
gives form to a collective memory, while showing how history itself is created
from differing perspectives.
(Be careful this is the real concerned photography.)

Molder - 1 picture only from an exhibition at the Centre
National de la Photographie in Paris. I have a small Gulbenkian
catalogue of his work from the seventies. I really liked this very

is so dream-like.

Walrafen - staged photography. More poetic than most of it.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez wrote about the Macondo series:
I did not find any images equivalent to those which in some sense underpin
my novels, and yet the poetic quality was the same. Later on, giving it more
thought, Ifelt Ihad discovered that Hannes and I, each in his own way, had
submitted the Caribbean coast of Colombia to the same set of poetic transpositions.
It's not the direct reproduction of reality but the alchemy of fictional vision
that, God willing, will end up someday being more real than reality itself.
Manipulation? Of course, precisely what the alchemy of artistic creation has
been and always will be.
Creyghton - Look at his Lyson prints! The studio of Clemente!
van der Elsken - hij zou het internet fantaaaaaastisch hebben gevonden.
Ed van der Elsken was one of the great documentary photographers of the Fifties,
Sixties and Seventies, and this first British solo survey gives the opportunity
to understand his pivotal position between street photographers such as Weegee
and Brassai, and the emotive, ultra-subjectivist photography of Nan Goldin
and Larry Clark, that came after him. An unrestrainedly energetic chronicler
of his times, van der Elsken's passion for life translates into a rapacious
and subjective photography, and a restless experimentation across the media
of film and still photography.
- Yes we all miss him.
Koen Wessing was
born on 26 January 1942, the son of the interior designer Han Wessing and the
fashion illustrator end sculptress Eva Eisenloeffel.
all accounts, it would seem that Wessing's decision totake up photography
was an impulsive one. According to interviews, Wessing met the photographers
Ed van der Elsken and Ata Kando around 1957. He was fascinated by the
bohemian life they led with Ata's three children, the journeys they
made hitch-hiking and the romanticism of the profession. And so he
resolved to become a photographer so that he could lead the same kind
Lanting - I will admit it: I'm a fan.
More apes and other animals: Daniel
The astonishing images of Daniel Lee derive from the artists' distillation
of Buddhist mythologies in which animal spirits transform the human countenance.
Beyond the immediate shock of horror and amazement in confronting the visages
is the sensible revelation that always lurks beneath the conventional interactions
with those we know; that of human continuity with every living substance. The
artist has deflected computer science to the realm of the esthetic, aloof from
current conventions reaching to the farthest selvages of exploration and discovery.
In 1995 I saw his Manimals in the Galerie
du Chateau d'Eau, Toulouse, France, and I still don"t know what to

Bettie Page-page -
Born: April 22, 1923 in Nashville, Tennessee. With
locks as dark as midnight and a smile as bright as day, Bettie Page
was much more than a beautiful pin-up model, she was simply the best.
A legend as much today as during her modeling days, every facet of
Betties life and personality captures the interest and devotion
of the thousands of fans that followed her career until the day of
her mysterious disappearance. Some photos depict nudity.
Lots and lots of pictures. BUT NO CREDITS. Bunny Yeager of course is one of
the photographers, but there must have been numerous others.
Ctein = dye transfer of course, and the author of "Post Exposure",
but at times he is a good photographer (too):
I'm considered to be one of the very best color printers alive today and one
of a scant handful of artists still making dye transfer prints.
Along with being a fine printer, I think I'm also a damn fine artist. That's
not solely my opinion; the editor of PHOTO Techniques magazine wrote: "...
Ctein may well be one of America's most accomplished unknown photographers."
Ellen Mark - Good pictures get to the point. It's great pictures
that don't. Sometimes they have no point to get to. They don't try
to simplify matters but to complicate them, to add nuance upon nuance
and keep all judgments suspended. In the Mary Ellen Mark show that
opened this month at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, there are dozens
of good pictures. There are some great pictures too.
Don't miss the celebrities gallery.
Len Bernstein -
Like so many others, I love candid photography. It is an adventure to walk
down the street not knowing just what I'll encounter or the emotions I'll have.
But what candid photographer hasn't had the experience of someone objecting
to his or her picture being taken? People may be suspicious of our motive.
They are concerned about not being shown in a true light. As a matter of fact,
if we want to be honest with ourselves as photographers, we'll ask, "As
I try to capture people in a candid, unposed moment, do I hope to find meaning
in them, or to make them look foolish and weak?"
Okhuizen - good allround dutch news photographer
Stoller Gallery Page. Ezra Stoller began photographing modern architecture
in the late 1930s. During the middle decades of the 20th century, Stoller
produced iconic images of many new American buildings, photographs
which had great influence on how building design and aspirations for
the future were viewed in the post-war era.
Powell - Color photographs from Afghanistan (1974-2000), Iran,
Ladakh, Ceylon, Palestine, and Egypt are mounted here with text material,
a technical photography section, and a list of print exhibitions. These
photographic essays were not so much intended to be works of journalism
as of art, a continuation of the Western artistic tradition called "orientalism."
Anton Corbijn -
nice site (not behaving very well). His photography is great.
Sato - In praise of mad shadows. In 'Photo-Respiration', Sato manipulates
light to create patterns of shadows in large black-and-white photographs.
Although contemporary Japanese architects such Tadao Ando capture light
to create interesting shadows, Sato is the only photographer who explores
the possibilities of light and shadow in his work. In doing so, he
bucks the trend towards colourful narrative pop images that started
with Nobuyoshi Araki and Yasumasa Morimura in the 1980s.

We only get to see the making of the pinhole camera's. Sadly not the pictures

En wel op concerned photography. Salgado? Nachtwey? Meiselas? Vroege Diepraam?
Nee: Dijkstra en Van Baalen. Als ook Serrano en Wall nog komen is het
circus weer compleet en het aankoopbudget van f 100.000 (van een totaal

Misschien komen de plaatjes nog.
Rineke Dijkstra (1959) Vleeshal, 15 december 2001 t/m 3 februari 2002
Rineke Dijkstra's portretten van jongeren geven een beeld
van existentiële onzekerheid en van de worsteling om vorm te geven
aan een eigen identiteit. Dijkstra slaagt er iedere keer in de juiste
balans te vinden tussen geposeerdheid en ontwapenende openhartigheid.
Haar foto's zijn niet bijzonder spectaculair en ze missen iedere opsmuk,
maar zijn toch zeer indringend en voor iedereen herkenbaar. Zoals ze zelf
zegt: 'Ik probeer te bereiken dat je als kijker in de huid van iemand
anders kunt kruipen. Ik zoek altijd onderwerpen die iets universeels in
zich hebben, bepaalde ervaringen die iedereen wel kent'.
Terzijde: de foto's van Dijkstra zijn bij vlagen natuurlijk geniaal. De
moeders; de stierenvechters; het poolse Botticelli-meisje. Allemaal de

Arthur BATUT. Inauguré en 1998, pour le Centenaire de
la première photographie par cerf-volant cet espace consacré
à Arthur BATUT présente les collections photographiques
préservées par sa famille.
Batut is in my hall of fame with Niepce.
Niépce's house - Pierre-Yves Mahé and Jean-Louis Marignier's
research demonstrate how the window (through which the world's first photograph
was taken) has been shifted from its original position. Drawn from the
inventor's correspondence and manuscripts, this research allows us to
see how the first picture realized by Niépce looked.
Maison Européenne de la Photographie,
situated in the historic heart of Paris, is a major centre for contemporary
photographic art. A completely new kind of cultural establishment, it
houses an exhibition centre, a large library, a video viewing facility
with a wide selection of films by or about photographers, and an auditorium.
It is designed to make the three fundamental photographic media - exhibition
prints, the printed page, and film - easily accessible to all.
And so they have: they have a great collection of tapes and books.
[But their site comes to a halt somewhere in 2000; what happened?]
Marseille - A privately funded museum in Amsterdam.
The collection of Huis Marseille is still very young. It consists of over
sixty photographs spanning the entire twentieth century. At the moment
the last decade of the century is most strongly represented. The emphasis
is on contemporary works by photographers who are mostly to be found among
the visual artists.
