Annie Leibovitz Shooting Sean Connery for Louis Vuitton

by JamesNYCFebruary 8. 2011 21:32
I just thought this might be fun to post.
Mathies who assisted with me years ago with another...... Notebale photographer...
has been Annies 1st for sometime now.
And just as when he and I worked together on a shoot of the contestants of 'The apprentice' Mathies makes it a point yet again to stealthfully avoid being seen on camera.
But if you look real hard you can see half of his face and the back of his head.

“Fuck the mid-tones” - HOW TO MAKE A BOOK WITH STEIDL

by JamesNYCFebruary 7. 2011 09:59

For 40 years, Gerhard Steidl has combined the roles of printer and publisher, resolved to personally check each sheet leaving his printing shop in Göttingen. This perfectionism, combined with an unconditional love for books, for the traditional printing craft, and a commitment to the quality standards of manufacturing (in the original sense of the word, made by hand), has gained worldwide attention. The most internationally renowned photographic artists vie for the opportunity to collaborate with Gerhard Steidl, to conceive and produce the perfect publication with him.

Filmed in the direct cinema style, HOW TO MAKE A BOOK WITH STEIDL observes the publisher, as he collaborates with the world famous photographers Joel Sternfeld, Robert Frank, Ed Ruscha, Jeff Wall and Robert Adams, at their studios and other places of work, in New York, London and Paris, in the Katar desert, and, last but not least, in Göttingen. Here, in “Steidlville”, their works are printed on Steidl‘s own machines, in three shifts. In goes the idea, out comes the finished book. 

Gerhard Steidl’s independent empire is founded on several  sources of income – a significant portion of his publishing efforts being dedicated to Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel (printing everything for the designers, from admission tickets to catalogues). Other staples are the German metal workers’ collective labor agreement and, for many years, each new book by Nobel laureate Günter Grass. This is where he earns the money that he, to use his words, “throws out the window” on ambitious photographic art projects.

HOW TO MAKE A BOOK WITH STEIDL presents a man in constant movement, a  German entrepreneur who has made the whole world his home. His experience and artistic empathy, his untiring dedication and diligence have made him the most important publisher of photographic books of the last decade.

Dennis Hopper Polaroid Disappears From Gallery

by JamesNYCFebruary 6. 2011 13:17

A six-person artist collective in Highland Park called THIS Los Angeles is asking for the public's help in tracking down a piece of art that was reportedly stolen last night from the opening of a new exhibit called These Friends.


According to the THIS Los Angeles website, as the opening night crowds were leaving and cleanup was underway an unidentified person grabbed a piece of art from the wall -- a personal piece not for sale -- and ran out the front door of the gallery space.

The now-missing artwork is artist Jason Lee's one of a kind 8×10 Polaroid of the late Dennis Hopper. Lee has put up a $25,000 dollar reward to anyone who brings back the sentimental piece. Notes the THIS Los Angeles website, "The thief can come forward anonymously and charges won’t be pressed against him." The collective is asking anyone with information to call us 323-747-5301 or email this@thislosangeles.com.

Phase One announced the IQ series of digital camera backs, setting a new standard for image quality.

by JamesNYCJanuary 24. 2011 09:34

Unlimited creativity at your fingertips

Today, Phase One announced the IQ series of digital camera backs, setting a new standard for image quality.

The IQ series is the answer to the professional photographer’s wildest dreams and exists as the most sophisticated and capable photographic system ever engineered and built!

The first system that will ship is the Phase One IQ180 digital back. Built on the most advanced sensor ever, the IQ180 can capture images at full-frame 80 megapixel resolution with a dynamic range of 12.5 f-stops. The IQ180 also features the sharpest, most vibrant, highest-resolution camera screen ever. The large 3.2” retina type, 1.15 megapixel high resolution display delivers a pixel density so high, that your eye is unable to distinguish between individual pixels which enables you to check even very fine details instantly.

Combining a new multi touch screen and the intuitive 4-button navigation, the IQ180 makes it easier than ever to navigate between different menus and features. The multi touch screen lets you zoom, pan and browse through images or menus fast, and the unique instant zoom function allows you to zoom with the tap of a finger.

The first product of its kind to feature a USB3 connection, the IQ180 facilitates extremely fast image transfers. The IQ180 also features a FireWire 800 connection, ensuring the fastest tethered capture speeds possible today. For untethered shooting, the IQ180 digital back’s new memory card interface is so fast that it eliminates buffering delays, supporting continuous shooting until a card is filled.
