Default Paris Photo LA April 25-27 2014, That's NOW!




I hope you will be able to visit the 2014 Paris Photo LA this week. If not at least, I will try to bring you photographs to enjoy and comment on.

"Paris Photo Los Angeles, the US edition of the world’s most celebrated art fair for works created in the photographic medium, will take place at Paramount Pictures Studios April 25th-27th offering the ideal setting to explore how artists have been and are using photography and moving image in their work in the 20th and 21st centuries.
Leading international galleries will present historical and contemporary bodies of works by renowned and emerging artists in the legendary Paramount Pictures’ soundstages. The New York Street Backlot, the one-of-a-kind replica of New York City’s streets, will be dedicated to the presentation of cutting-edge solo shows, Young Gallery exhibitions, and bookseller projects, each exhibiting within an exclusive movie set.
The public program is also an important component of the fair. Built around cultural events involving artists, art world professionals, collectors, and cultural institutions, this year’s program will include special exhibitions and the Sound & Vision series of conversations and screenings.


So please return to see some of the photographs pulled together for our viewing pleasure.

Asher

Many times, I'm so moved by the scenes on TV that I run for my camera and snap off frames to stor what amazes me. I started by my reaction to the blatant hypocrisy of Foxnews in preaching about conservative "Family Values" but then re-running Victoria Secrets girls with slowly floating breasts and swinging thighs or else ran their news cameras from the ankles slowly up the bare legs of female newscasters or guests, but never males! Gradually, I broadened my snapping sampling from animals, landscapes to hurricanes. Still, my interest in the women presenters has never abated.

So, today, I'm super impressed by someone else making of art photographing our ubiquitous window to the world: the TV screen!

Actually, Robert Heinecken, 1931-2006), was famous for making photographs, but not using a camera to create the source of the image!


Work:

"Heinecken was known for appropriating and re-processing images from magazines, product packaging or television. In "Are You Rea" series from 1964 to 1968, for instance, he created a portfolio of images filled with unexpected and sometimes surreal juxtapositions by placing a single magazine page on a light table, so that the resulting contact print picks up imagery from both sides of the page.[4]

In the late 1960s, he also began cutting up popular magazines such as Time and Vogue and inserting sexual or pornographic images into them. He would place his collage-publications back on newsstands in Los Angeles to be sold to unsuspecting buyers.[5]

In the 1980s, he created several series on American news television that involved photographing images on the television or exposing the light of a television set directly to paper to create what he called "videograms."[1]" Wikipedia


"Teaching and legacy

In 1962, he founded the photography program at UCLA. He taught there until 1991. In 1964 he helped found the Society for Photographic Education, an organization of college-level teachers. He also taught at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where his second wife, Joyce Neimanas, was on faculty. They split their time between the two cities for several years before they moved to New Mexico in 2004. The official cause listed on his death certificate was Alzheimer's.[1]

During his life he was mainly shown in traditional photography galleries, but two contemporary art galleries in L.A. began staging exhibitions of his work after his death: Marc Selwyn Fine Art and Cherry and Martin. Curators like Eva Respini at the Museum of Modern Art now place his work in a conceptual art lineage, associating him with Pictures Generations artists such as Cindy Sherman, John Baldessari and Richard Prince.[5][6]"
