Photographers of the Times
The New York Times has written a couple of articles about photographers lately which is nice. One article appeared in the magazine a few weeks back and another was in the arts section today.
The magazine talked about Jeff Wall, a color large format photographer who blows his pieces up real big and displays them with light boxes. He only makes one copy of each so there value is very high and he can afford to make each shot just how he wants to. Check it out.
The other article celebrates Henry Wessel an amercian photographer who shoots american subject matter in black and white and has been for 30 years. In fact Jeff wall has been shooting just as long and both of them have exibits of the Museum of Modern Art. If you like pictures compare their vastly different styles that have evolved during the same period.
