Joel Meyerowitz exhibition at C/O Berlin

Joel Meyerowitz exhibition at C/O Berlin


During the issue #23 end production we took some time off to check out the Joel Meyerowitz exhibition at the C/O Berlin.
If you’re not familiar with the C/O Berlin, then it’s a must see!
C/O Berlin always features some really good and interesting exhibitions. The current one is a retrospective from Joel Meyerowitz and it’s not to be missed, if you’re in the Berlin area.
It’s running till March 11th, so there´s one more week to go and check it out.
Joel Meyerowitz was one of the few first photographers to use color film for his streetphotography. The exhibition shows a great overview from his early black and white work, his color street photography to the Aftermath Project where he documented the clean up works after the 9/11 attacks to his more recent works of landscape photography.
So dont´t miss this one!
For more info check out the C/O Berlin website for future exhibitions.
They also have a nice Bookstore and cafe to hang out before or after visiting the exhibition.

Inspiration #2 – Mark Seliger

Actor Thomas Haden Church and Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Ed Keating join Mark Seliger to talk about how they got their starts, the work that is most meaningful to them. The three men discuss their experiences of 9/11 and their work in the days following. Finally, they reach into the fishbowl to ask each other questions about photography, including, “what’s the biggest problem with camera phones?”

Inspiration – #1


JR owns the biggest art gallery in the world.

He exhibits freely in the streets of the world, catching the attention of people who are not typical museum visitors. His work mixes Art and Act, talks about commitment, freedom, identity and limit.

After he found a camera in the Paris subway, he did a tour of European Street Art, tracking the people who communicate messages via the walls. Then, he started to work on the vertical limits, watching the people and the passage of life from the forbidden undergrounds and roofs of Paris.

In 2006, he achieved Portrait of a Generation, portraits of the suburban “thugs” that he posted, in huge formats, in the bourgeois districts of Paris. This illegal project became “official” when the Paris City Hall wrapped its building with JR’s photos.

Warren Bolster Book Review

This book is not new but still more than worth checking out
and looks pretty nice on your coffee table.
There´s some great pictures from the 70´s era of skating including pools, parks, pipes, slalom etc.
So if you´re interested in some history about skateboarding and skate photography this is for you.
