Photography auction at Christie's

posted by Michael on 16 June 2009

A set of contemporary photographs are up for auction at 10.30 am on 1 July. The photographers featured are an eclectic lot and while the site says there are 123 images not all are photographs. Click on the images to see the individual lot details.

A few of the images are highlighted below. Firstly Tom Hunter, fairly well known for being the only photographer to have a solo show at the National Gallery. The Way Home by Tom Hunter

This image is, in my opinion, one of his best images from his early "Life and Death in Hackney" series. It is a direct reference to a Pre-Raphaelite painting Ophelia by John Everett Millais. The second image I have chosen is a much older image that is one of those that sort of lodges in your unconscious.

Divers 1930 by GEORGE HOYNINGEN-HUENE

Divers from 1930 by George Hoyningen-Huene. And finally a Diane Arbus that I hadn't seen before from 1964, Lady Bartender at Home with Souvenir Dog, New Orleans:

Bridget's work on the Hereford Photo Festival

posted by Michael Walter on 07 May 2009

Both the British Journal of Photography (BJP) and the Hereford Times have featured the upcoming Hereford Photo Festival that Bridget is curating.

Julia Fullerton Batten – Teenage Stories

The main theme of the festival is on photographing children. Both the BJP and Hereford Times quote Bridget on the problems photographers face today:

'Now photographers, both amateur and professional, have to negotiate the minefield of obtaining permissions, run the risk of being branded a pervert and counter our increasing prudishness of what is thought to be an appropriate image of a child.'

The festival also features a retrospective of the photographer John Bulmer, some of whose work of children playing serves as an apt reminder that the paranoid fear that photography is somehow dangerous is a relatively modern belief.

Bulmer was a pioneer of colour photography in journalism so when the Sunday Times launched its colour supplement in 1962, Bulmer was an obvious choice as a contributor to its first issue.

He worked for the paper for the next 10 years as one of its most prolific photographers, covering both national and international stories.
