REVIEW: WILLIAM EGGLESTON – “Sit-In at the Fotomat” (2010)

By Tim Davis For years, Tod Papageorge, the head of the Photography Department at the Yale University School of Art, would begin student critiques of color pictures with the question, “Why color?” Color was an aesthetic choice and Papageorge felt students needed to account for it.

REVIEW: Sophie Calle – “Rachel, Monique’” (2012)

By Allie Haeusslein, Associate Director at Pier 24 Photography, ASX February 2013 Given her proclivity for documenting and sharing the most intimate of moments – both her own and those of others – it is hardly surprising that Sophie Calle ultimately turned this probing eye on her mother.

JOACHIM BROHM: “Joachim Brohm” (1993)

Car on Fire, Ohio, 1983-1984 By Justin Hoffman & Charles V. Miller, Artforum, January 1, 1993 Joachim Brohm’s work demonstrates that there are other kinds of “straight” photography in Germany besides the “Becher School.” The effect of Brohm’s work is comparable to that of the Bechers: he equates reproduction and the autonomous image, realism and […]
