Maybe one of the most influential photographers (along with her late husband Bernard) to have lived in the modern era….

“They are best known for their extensive series of photographic images, or typologies, of industrial buildings and structures, often organised in grids. As the founders of what has come to be known as the ‘Becher school’ they influenced generations of documentary photographers and artists. They have been awarded the Erasmus Prize and the Hasselblad Award.”  via

Study for Light Projection’s 38 & 39

Congrats to the the winner of the European Publishers Award for Photography (EPAP) 2015 who is Russian photographer Danila Tkachenko with his project Restricted Areas which is a wonderful and haunting series of images on the Russian “technocratic future that never came”.

“The project “Restricted Areas” is about utopian strive of humans for technological progress.

I travel in search of places which used to have great importance for the technical progress – and which are now deserted. Those places lost their significance together with the utopian ideology which is now obsolete. Secret cities that cannot be found on maps, forgotten scientific triumphs, abandoned buildings of almost inhuman complexity. The perfect technocratic future that never came…”

The Photographs of Danila Tkachenko

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.
