Vivian Maier Photographer | Official website of Vivian Maier | Vivian Maier Portfolios, Prints, Exhibitions, Books and documentary film

by sbrothier
Piecing together Vivian Maier’s life can easily evoke Churchill’s famous quote about the vast land of Tsars and commissars that lay to the east. A person who fit the stereotypical European sensibilities of an independent liberated woman, accent and all, yet born in New York City.

Hand coloured photographs of 19th century Japan | The Public Domain Review

by sbrothier
A selection from a series of 42 hand coloured albumine prints – a process which used the albumen found in egg whites to bind the photographic chemicals to the paper – taken around 1880. The presence of the pictures in the Dutch National Archieff reflects a long relationship between Japan and the Netherlands, the result of an exclusive commercial relationship that would last for more than two centuries (1641-1855).

Portfolio: HIroshi Sugimoto - Movie Theatres

by sbrothier
Throughout the mid to late 1970s and upwards, Hiroshi Sugimoto packed up a folding 4x5 camera & tripod, surreptitiously entered matinees (and, one can only presume, evening film events) and documented the interior of movie theatres across the United States - invoking a classic procedure borrowed from Conceptual Art. He would open the shutter just before the 'first light' hit the screen and close it after the credits finished rolling and before the house lights came on. Using this method he was able to invert the subject/object relationship of the movie theatre and use the film itself to illuminate the proscenium and interior. However - it's MORE than that, isn't it? There is also a social and political critique implicit to the gesture. The rendering of a 'blank' movie screen carries with it a whole series of alternate implications that are highly relevant to a culture of consumption.  The unavoidable allusions of mass social programming and lack of content are implicit in the act. This content, largely unaddressed crtiically, is what lends the images their incredible power - along wtih the natural fascination of being made privy to the photography's divine birthright - allowing us to see the normall invisible - to experience a finite collapse of time.   -JWD

Autopsie - Bruno Mouron | Éditions de La Martinière

by sbrothier
Dans un article du Monde, un professeur d’université en sociologie a exposé son étude consacrée à l’analyse des poubelles pour appréhender la consommation et les comportements sociaux. Bruno Mouron et Pascal Rostain, paparazzi de profession, ont décidé de « faire les poubelles » de leurs clients habituels, les célébrités. Et ce qui fut au départ un gag de presse est vite devenu une réflexion plastique.

- Stephanie GENGOTTI - Agence photographique MYOP

by sbrothier
First the bodies, the flesh, the humours. Then the track, the sign, the imprint. Después, in Spanish, means after. These portraits start from a very precise instant of time and from a defined place: the protagonists are couples right after sex and the room as a witness. The fulcrum of the work is not sharing intercourse, nor a morbid curiosity about the life of the subjects, but the search for the track, the one capable of telling about intimacy, through a glance or a gesture. “How many couples in this very moment are about to have orgasm?”, wonders the young protagonist of the fortunate film Amélie. This question introduces an amusing, frenetic sequence in which fifteen couples reach the height of pleasure. The people are different by age, race and sexual preferences. They represent a variegated humanity, like that portrayed in this project. Young, old, homosexual, no form of judgement or prejudice finds space, because there is no right or wrong way to experience one’s own sexuality, nor is there an opportune or inopportune way of feeling inside oneself a moment as important as orgasm. That moment when one is completely detached from the world and from its rules to let emotions run free.

by sbrothier
World religious leaders gathered in Rome, Italy, to take part to the 27th inter-religious peace summit hosted by the Community of Sant’Egidio, an Italian based Catholic lay association with a network of members spreading over 60 countries.

Nude Photography by Simon Bolz

by sbrothier
I shoot nude photo series for magazines and capture only what's necessary not to overstimulate you.


by sbrothier, 1 comment
A cinq ans, mon père m’a offert un appareil photo. Mon amie Anna est la première personne que j’ai prise en photo. Je ne savais pas comment la faire poser. Je lui ai juste demandé d’enlever sa robe. Elle l’a gardé à la main pour ne pas la salir. Depuis, j’ai toujours un appareil dans mon sac. J’essaie de ne pas bousculer l’intimité des gens que je photographie. La confiance qu’ils placent en moi est essentielle.
