Harold Edgerton

Look at this boss.

Look at this boss' pics.

One of my fav things about photography class was these presentations we had to give about photographs. My friend did one on Edgerton. I learned a lot and was exposed to a lot of great photographers through the presentations. I miss that class...these days I'm a tiny bit apathetic about art/photography/fashion. Other priorities at the moment, that's all.

Sorry, no time to maintain this. SUCKS.

Here are some pics I took this summer. They were all pretty shitty. School is too hard to have time to focus on art or fashion....

Summer is a great time of year! Here are some great photos!

Hope anyone and everyone that is reading this is having a great summer! Mine has been pretty relaxing and enjoyable for the most part. I have been spending a lot of time in bookstores reading about art and writing down photographers I see in books, so....more to come soon!

Irving Penn pt. 4 -- Still life & etc

I love love love Irving Penn's still lifes. He worked closely with Vogue and a lot of these photos accompanied articles in the magazine. On the left is "Cholesterol's Revenge" and on the right was a photo that went with an article about osteoporosis prevention foods. Here are some more still lifes and other miscellaneous photos that I enjoy!
Do you see the mouse?!
Fish of fish. At first I didn't see it and thought it was nothing special!

Irving Penn pt. 2 -- Different cultures & tribes
Irving Penn brought his studio all over the world and photographed veiled Moroccan women and the Mudmen of New Guinea, among others. I love the way they are set against the studio background and taken out of context. These pictures revere and dignify the subjects and I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!

Irving Penn pt. 1 -- Flowers

Flower studies from between 1967 and 2006.

This photo by Irving Penn just about kills me. After his wife, and model, Lisa Fonssagrives passed away, he made a series of self portraits where his face is fractured and disconfigured. Reading a lot about Irving Penn, he seems like the quintessential well-rounded, happy, amazing guy and their relationship the same-- so this photo really breaks my heart. It's hard to say certainly because there are so many I enjoy, but I think Irving Penn might be my favorite photographer. Here is an enchanting picture of Irving and Lisa!

Edward Weston
Adore this man!
