WILLIAM KLEIN – ONE OF THE BEST STREET AND FASHION PHOTOGRAPHERS OF THE XX CENTURY

Street and fashion photography are practically the most sought-after and popular art trends in the twentieth century. Many famous photographers worked in these genres. One of them is William Klein. He ranks 25th on the list of the hundred most influential professional photographers.
Klein was born in 1928 in the USA. But despite American roots, his work and many years of his life are closely connected with Europe, where he moved after the Second World War.
At a young age, William became a student at one of the New York colleges, where he studied sociology. Since the beginning of the Second World War, he was drafted into the army, took part in hostilities in the French and German territories.
Klein received a specialized education at the Sorbonne. As a specialization, he chose painting and sculpture. At the same time he began to be interested in photographic art, however, at that time he did not consider this hobby something serious. In the words of William Klein himself, photography is just a “maid of painting”, but in no way an independent direction that deserves full value. Continue reading

HOW TO CORRECT A BROWNED PHOTO?

As an introduction, I chose the picture “Chelubey struggling with overexposure”, which is already familiar to many. This joke of Anton Martynov fits in perfectly with the topic of the article. Especially since the task of recovering overexposed photos looks both complicated and comic. But let’s order.
So that readers who understand processing do not waste their time, I will answer briefly. When overexposure, a photographic material or a matrix gets an excess exposure, which leads to excessive brightness of the resulting image and compression of lights. Simply put, the contrast decreases in the highlights. Thus, to correct overexposed areas it is necessary to darken them, with an increase in the contrast of the highlights. If the overexposure is local, then the impact must be localized accordingly. Everything! What tool you will do this depends on your skills and available sources. Continue reading

PHOTOGRAPHY OF THE CHOICE OF MADOZY (CHEMA MADOZ): THE AMAZING WORLD OF BANAL ITEMS

Analyzing the work of this contemporary Spanish photographer, critics often use the term “visual poetry,” which takes us far beyond the usual perception of photography.
Even a quick glance at the work of this author forces the viewer to stop the usual circle of thoughts. After all, ordinary things: matches, books, paper, scissors and other household items – in the photographs of Chema Madoz (Chema Madoz) acquire unusual, abstract meanings.
Each of its strict black-and-white photographs, consisting of well-adjusted lines that do not have more than one detail, opens up a new look at familiar objects, forcing you to smile, think, or just see the world differently.
If you take a closer look at the images of Chema Madoz, it’s hard not to notice the surrealistic origins of these images. The author “plays” with the things in the pictures just as in the mid-20th century the famous artist Rene Magritte did this, offering the viewer riddles like, images of a tube with the words “This is not a tube”.
