Evita Goze

Third week

Posted in photography, photography studies by evitagoze on October 21, 2010

Most of the last week I spent in b&w lab printing photos. Time there is going too fast. It’s closing already at 5pm, so no 24 hours party people lining up and fighting for enlargers.

Here are a few of those romantic pictures I mentioned before I have taken of Anna in Brighton beach for Identity project (not the best quality, I scanned pictures instead of negatives):

I have done some more pictures of two other girls, but right not they don’t exist in any digital form. And my concept for this project still is quite blurry.

For Historical and Critical Studies lecture we had to read Looking at Portraits from Photography: the Key Concepts by David Bate (It has been mentioned as one of the most essential books along Photography: A Critical Introduction by Liz Wells, Photography: A Cultural History by M. W. Marien and Stephen Bull’s Photography) to discuss some of the key relationships between the portrait historically and the emergent technology of photography in the 19th century.

Some of the pictures we looked at:

Joseph Benoit Suvee, Dibutades (The Discovery of Drawing), 1793

Caravaggio, Narcissus, 1598-99

Titian, Emperor Charles V, 1856

Hans Holbein the Younger, Georg Gisze, 1532

Giovanni Bellini, Leonardo Loredan, Doge of Venice, 1501-05

Jan Van Eyck, The Marriage of Giovanni Arnolfini, 1434

Steve McCurry, Sharbat Gula, Pakistan, 1985

Johan Kaspar Lavater, Silhouette Machine, 1843

David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson, Mrs. Elizabeth Hall and Unknown Woman (Newhaven Fishwives), 1845

Robert Demachy, Struggle, 1904
