Famous Photographers and their Work
By "famous" I mean photographers that I've always liked most of my live. When I was young I liked a lot of fashion photographers like Irving Penn and Richard Avedon, but now, the fashion photographers seem superficial besides what I call the plein aire photographers like Kertész, Adams, Bresson, or Lartique, or the photo journalists like Weege or Robert Capa.

Tennessee Williams, 1948. By W. Eugene Smith
Solitary Confinement, Tenn Williams, Book, Tennessee Williams, Confinement Inside, Ten Williams, Tennesse Williams, Portraits, Eugene Smith
“We are all sentenced to solitary confinement inside our own skins, for life.” —Tennessee Williams
Tennesse Williams “Nothing's more determined than a cat on a hot tin roof...” ("The Rose Tattoo"..." The Night of the Iguana"..."The glass menagery"... "Suddenly, last summer"....And the Pulitzer Prize for "A Streetcar Named Desire" )
Tennessee Williams. I read his books as a teen-ager and young adult. Now that I am old, I think I should read them all again. My perspective has changed and I think that would make all the difference.

Berenice Abbott in 1921, photographed by Man Ray. It was under his tutelage that she became a photographer. Peggy Guggenheim and Robert McAlmon helped finance her first studio.

Berenice Abbott in 1921, photographed by Man Ray. Berenice Abbott was an American photographer best known for her black-and-white photography of New York City architecture and urban design of the 1930s. Her philosophy can be reduced to twenty-one words: “Photography can never grow up if it imitates some other medium. It has to walk alone; it has to be itself.” Like the photography she loved, she often walked alone, but at the end of the walk, her life was a triumph.
Happy Birthday Man Ray! The Dada artist was born on August 27th 1890. Here is one of his pictures, a beautiful portrait of photographer Berenice Abbott, on show at Jeu de Paume a few months ago!

Chapter III - Brett showed up to Braddocks's dancing-club tonight. His club was a "bal musette in the Rue de la Montagne Sainte Geneviève... one night a week, it was a dancing-club" (27). It wasn't too bad, but it got worse, later a "crowd of young men, some in jerseys and some in their shirt sleeves got out. I could see their hands and newly washed hair in the light from the door" (28). The club was okay until Brett's friends came in. Here is a picture of the street the club is on, it is nice.
