William Klein is a legend in the fashion and documentary photography world. His ability to transcend anything he works with is a testament to his legendary status.

Have a look at the images that got him hired at Vogue. He was a master right out of the gate.

“William Klein: Black and Light, (1952-2015) is the second in the imprint series – unique and beautifully produced publications, each dedicated to the work of a single artist; in–depth and in print. Imprint #2 is the first publishing of a seminal maquette created in 1952 by cult photographer, film-maker and master of the photo book, William Klein (USA, born 1928). It is comprised completely of experimental photograms made only with light and movement – events captured and transformed in the darkroom. Created just after and inspired by Klein’s late 40’s/early 50’s geometric paintings and screens, when first exhibited in 1953 they led directly to his invitation to work for Vogue in 1954. The rest, as they say, is history”

William Klein’s First Images

Art that understands the vocabulary of its past always catches my eye. Beth Lipman who shows at the wonderful Claire Oliver Gallery in New York knows still life. Her glass sculpture speaks to that over the top still life tradition of the 17th century where bountiful excess was all the rage. (Wait!!! That seems to be our era as well!) History has a way of repeating itself but not Beth. These are really wonderful works that take this ancient tradition and spin it so that it speaks to us here and now.

Keep an eye out for her exhibition in April 2015.

Stop Telling Women to Smile
Tatyana Fazlalizadeh

Stop Telling Women to Smile comes from Tatyana Fazlalizadeh’s interviews with women about their street harassment experiences. Fazlalizadeh draws portraits of these women, adds text from their statements and experiences, and pastes them around the city in areas where harassment occurs. They serve as a way to talk back to street harassers in the spaces where the problem exists. This is part of our series on street harassment, which grew out of our Advisory Council‘s question “What makes us feel safe?” Stop Telling Women to Smile is on view at Temple Contemporary through January 31st.

Most are familiar with the incredible photographic tableaux’s  of Joel Peter Witkin but until this exhibition I did not know there was an equally talented yet estranged twin brother named Jerome Witkin. Take a few minutes and soak in the exhibition of a unique moment in the history of art; Separated twin artists reunited for the first time over 70 years later.

(Check out the video….Very interesting to see how their work (which is equally visionary in many respects) compares and contrasts).

Twin Visions: Jerome Witkin & Joel-Peter Witkin

An historic exhibition united two celebrated artists – identical twin brothers – Jerome Witkin & Joel-Peter Witkin

March 1, 2014 at Jack Rutberg Fine Arts in Los Angeles.

Jerome Witkin and Joel-Peter Witkin are acknowledged as two of the greatest contemporary artists in their respective genres. Jerome Witkin is a painter cited by critics and curators as the finest narrative contemporary artist. Joel-Peter Witkin is equally regarded as a master of his genre – a groundbreaking photographer famous for masterfully conjuring his uniquely surreal images. These identical twin brothers, artistically estranged, have enjoyed remarkable success during their respective careers spanning more than fifty years, have never exhibited together. Until now.
