Notes from the wide world of photography:
I’ve been talking about Fashion Week here in New York the past couple of days. Take a trip back to the fashions of 1969 courtesy of this Life Magazine slide show. I’m living for that all-cheetah outfit.
Filed under “Things I’m looking forward to”: If you’re passing through Atlanta early next year, I’d recommend stopping by the High Museum to see “Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Modern Century,” which they are claiming is “the first major retrospective in the U.S. in more than 30 years of one of photography’s most original and influential masters.” The museum goes on to say that the show will be “on view from February 19 through May 29, 2011, the exhibition comprises more than 250 photographs dating from 1929 to 1989—at least one-fifth of which are previously unknown to the public—and focuses on the photographer’s most productive decades, the 1930s through the 1960s.” Winter seems like a good time to visit Atlanta, don’t you think? In the meantime, the museum is exhibiting 75 vintage prints by Danish-born American photographer Peter Sekaer. The museum’s press release notes “‘While Peter Sekaer is not a household name, his photographs are among the finest produced in the Depression era in the United States. He’s a hidden gem,’ says Julian Cox, curator of photography.”
