    • Object:Photo


      from Second Story Added

      In 2001, the Museum of Modern Art acquired more than 300 iconic photographs from Thomas Walther’s private collection. Spanning the first half of the 20th century, these works represent a period of unprecedented photographic creativity as new techniques and technologies became widely available. Object:Photo brings these photographs and the research of MoMA’s curatorial team to life in the form of four visualizations that allow users to explore both the collection and the artists represented in a variety of contexts. “Mapping Photographs” plots the collection geographically and identifies additional points of interest (exhibitions, schools, etc.), uncovering hubs of activity. “Comparing Photographs” spotlights the various techniques and materials represented in the collection and allows users to compare individual timelines for each technique. Visitors uncover unexpected links between photographers through “Connecting Artists,” and “Mapping Artists’ Lives” displays biographies geographically, allowing users to see where particular individuals worked and may have crossed paths with others. Supplemental pages detail extensive research the museum conducted on the photographs and their creators as well as exhibitions, publications, schools, and industry hubs from the period. http://secondstory.com/project/object-photo

          • Clear Light. The Architecture of Lauretta Vinciarelli / Oscar Riera Ojeda Publishers


            from oscar riera ojeda publishers Added

            “Although much of my work is architectural in character, I do not represent real spaces. Rather, my work has its origins in the spaces I have abandoned – the mood of Rome and the landscape of Texas – and the paintings are of spaces I know that look nothing like what I paint …They are essentially meditations on essences of architecture like enclosure, surface and light.” Born in Italy in 1943, Lauretta Vinciarelli passed away in New York in 2011. Trained as an architect in Rome but a watercolorist by vocation, her works reside in numerous private collections and among the holdings of prominent institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery in Washington DC, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Noted for their luminous qualities of color and light, her depictions of imagined spaces open up a world of enclosed rooms, sweeping landscapes, watery materiality, and atmospheric ephemerality. Describing her work, a noted theorist and critic once said, “They are not architecture exactly, but evidence that it exists.” This book brings together paintings from 1981 onwards in the most complete collection of Vinciarelli’s work to date. It also includes texts from knowledgeable commentators and for the first time presents sketch materials that provide insight into Vinciarelli’s working methodology. Vinciarelli’s technique often operated at the very limits of her medium; sometimes even to the point of failure. In these paintings, color is used as a device for shaping space, with watercolor the chosen medium for its rich portrayal of light and the conceptual simplicity of the act of mixing paste with water. A collaboration between The City College of New York. Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture and Oscar Riera Ojeda Publishers

                      from ShivFilms Added 20 0 0

                      This was shot entirely on an iPhone 4S and then edited in FCPX. It has some issues, but overall I'm quite happy with the result of this piece, given the challenge I set myself, as I decided to use my DSLR exclusively for photography. I would have also loved to include some footage of Brooklyn Bridge but I only decided to shoot on the second day (after I had already done the bridge walk!) Enjoy anyway!
