Chantal Regnault. Lakou Souvenance. Easter Monday 2000. From Photograph Magazine. 2015.  Re-post.

The exhibit is called “From Within and Without: The History of Haitian Photography.”  It will be shown from June 21 to October 4, 2015, at the NSU Art Museum in Fort Lauderdale  (Nova Southeastern University.)

Chantal Regnault is French. She became known in the ’80’s and 90’s documenting the dance scene in NYC.  This is a gorgeous portrait of a Haitian woman who may have been engaged in a voo doo ritual.

The Open Shutter Gallery in Durango, Colorado is currently showing the work of two photographers whose images I like.  One is an Austrian, while the other is American.


Josef Hoflhener

Josef Hoflehner


By Paul Goldfinger, Editor @Blogfinger

Josef Hoflehner is an Austrian born photographer  (b. 1955) who is known around the world for his landscapes. One of his projects is called the “Jet Airlines Series.”   These images of airplanes flying low over a Caribbean beach in St.Maartin are all shot in black and white.  He has a book of these pictures with the same name.  The images are overexposed producing that bright whiteness without much shadings of black and white, but that is his style.  It is, of course, dramatic to see these low flying airplanes causing beachgoers to run for cover, but it is not trick photography.  Those who visit St. Maartin are quite familiar with these events at their beach, but Hoflehner has become famous sharing them with the rest of the world.


Pete Turner

Pete Turner

Pete Turner, an American born in 1934, became famous with his use of super-saturated colors as in this famous image  “the Red Giraffe.”  In 1967 this image attracted a great deal of interest at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  His “other-worldly” themes have been used as covers for music albums, especially jazz. Turner is currently working on a book about his jazz album covers.

The album that used this cover photograph is by Antonio Carlos Jobim and is called “Wave”  The colors were green and blue.    Unknown-3
