Adore the portrait of Lartigue (among others).

Anybody else remember Christa? AFAIK she hailed from Germany. This was for Nova.

There's one shot that's so Saul Leiter - the one through the 'phone booth (?) window. He's got one of the Shrimp which I think is the best shot of that beautiful girl ever made, Bailey notwithstanding.

For anyone who thought it couldn't be done well before digital came along.

Erwitt's images are a joy to view, and his narration is great, brief and precise.  Thanks for that link, Rob.

Only in recent years have I become more open-minded towards such art.  That also has to do with the understanding gleaned from guided tours of an art historian whom I thank greatly for her patience and knowledge.  Today I try to visit as many exhibitions and museums as possible.

Not far from here, there's a former NATO missle site which today exhibits artwork in the most impressive surroundings.  I'm also planning to visit the nearby exhibition of work from Peter Lindbergh and Garry Winogrand this month.  In three years I'll retire and hopefully have more time for such exploration.

Thanks for that link, Rob.  Another enjoyable film.

Some may enjoy - I hope.

I have just been to an exhibition of his work at Tate Modern. It was ten quid well spent. I didn't expect to get much from it but was I wrong. It was truly inspiring and he seems to have been quite a guy and collaborated a lot which seems to suggest he wasn't all ego.

I was blown away by what he could do with some cardboard boxes, in particular the three blue ones and how much attention he paid to the backgrounds of the 3D works which had bits attached to them and coils of rope or wire snaking out of the frame.

He never seemed to fall into 'just churning it out'. I was strangely struck by his photos of the man walking down some steps. So simple but very clever and it worked. It's one of those 'any mutt could do that' shots - well yes maybe but that mutt did do it and he did it right.

Worth a visit if you're in London (and I got in cheap due to the deal every last Friday of the month).
