Cartier-Bresson at MoMA

May 28, 2010

I was fortunate enough to spend today at the Museum of Modern Art to see the exhibit Henri Cartier-Bresson,  The Modern Century.  I was very impressed with the size and range of the exhibition.  The photographs were amazing, most of which I had never seen before.  It was interesting to compare some of the photographs on the wall with their appearance in a magazine layout.  The exhibit runs through June 28th and it is well worth the time.

I photographed this building on a recent trip to NYC.  I had a great time at Photo Plus Expo, even though I had trouble walking around.  The show was smaller this year, but always worth the trip.

Breakfast

In my last post, I mentioned going to Katz’s Deli.  Whenever I go out to breakfast with my photographer friends and I order pancakes, I always threaten to photograph them.  This time I brought my Polaroid in and actually did it.

A little background:  Last year, when I was taking History of Photography at RISD, we had to do a presentation on a famous photographer.  Our group presentation was on Stephen Shore.  For his American Surfaces and Uncommon Places projects, Shore traveled, “exploring the changing culture of America and exploring how a photograph renders the segment of time and space in its scope.”  In the process, he photographed TV sets, furniture, and of course, a pancake breakfast.

Went to New York City on Sunday with a group of friends to shoot photos. We had breakfast at Katz’s Deli, where the famous scene from “When Harry Met Sally” was filmed. It’s one of those places that’s a New York City landmark.  Shot on 600 film with an SX-70 Alpha1 Model 2 camera.

Wow, what a day.  I’m exhausted, but it was a blast!  I’ll have some pictures and more up this weekend.
