arne svenson

if someone was to ask me how photography fitted into the canon of western art i could do worse than direct them to arne svenson. i could look at these all day. interesting contrast/comparison to the previous post on miroslac tichy

miroslav tichy

miroslav tichy - problematic in so many ways but his images are so arresting. you be the judge. that's what art's all about maybe?

vivian maier

what can creativity look like when it's outside sales, galleries and academia? like vivian maier that's what. i love the lack of biography for her, i love the fact she most likely wouldn't be happy about the attention she's getting now. and i love that because all it does is focus attention onto the images.

moriyamo daido
