SHARPNESS IS A BOURGEOIS CONCEPT

Är namnet på min blogg med fotografiska anteckningar och kommentarer. Den finns här.

Namnet är ett citat från Henri Cartier-Bresson. I samband med att Vanity Fair fick idén att Cartier-Bresson skulle ta ett porträtt på Helmut Newton utspelade sig följande:

- Cartier-Bresson invited Newton and his wife, June, for lunch at his flat in the rue de Rivoli. Then they walked to a nearby park to take the picture. “He had his little Leica,” Newton remembers, “and he simply would point and shoot.” Since Cartier-Bresson’s hand isn’t as steady as it used to be, some of the pictures were a bit fuzzy

 -“Sharpness is a bourgeois concept,” he told Newton. Newton sits back and laughs: “I thought that was just divine.”

BENGT-GÖRAN CARLSSON IS DEAD

 

One of my oldest friends in photography died on Sunday 22/5 after a long time of disease.

He was an outstanding photographer and he inspired a lot of young photographers in Örebro.
