My favorite shows at the Met have been when the curators mix the old and new, the classical and the modern and the high and the low.  The Met sculpture exhibition Is astounding and for this exhibition it takes a village of curators.  Run don’t walk to see this show:

Like Life: Sculpture, Color, and The Body (1300–Now)  is one of the best shows this year and every piece is a knock out.

Justyna Badach​ has done what few artists can with this new series of appropriated ISIS film stills which are all printed by hand and made with gun powder. Yes, these are very unique photographs that could possibly be a first in the history of photography because they have incorporated gun powder with a photographic emulsion to tell the story of war and indoctrination. These haunting dichromate photographs are literally made with the very substances that propel all wars. Run don’t walk to see this exhibition by an artist at the top of her game who combines a refugee’s personal narrative with a global feminine and most importantly; human perspective on men, war, religion and ultimately the brainwashing of young minds.

Thomas Brummett Paris Exhibition

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

The late and great Sarah Charlesworth has been mentioned in this blog recently. Regrettably I just realized she passed away suddenly on June 25th.  The New York Times has a nice piece remembering her here that is well worth the read.

She is especially worth noting again regarding her major retrospective at the New Museum in New York. Not to be missed and a glorious final tribute to a remarkable photographic artist.
