Sam Falk. George Washington Bridge. 1967.

.

It's rare that photomanipulation grabs my attention, but the hands-on, simplicity of this one appealed to me. Fitting that it was done by Falk, a workaday NYT's photographer not known for this kind of work.

Manipulation was actually done by the Belgian sculptor Pol Bury. (Thanks to Maiden for the correction.)

That George Washington Bridge photo/collage is amazing, but I'm pretty sure it's the Belgian sculptor Pol Bury who did the manipulation. This site includes the dual attribution.

Here's another Bury in a similar style: https://www.mfah.org/art/detail/134315.

This one looks like it's been significantly altered in post-production to my untrained eye, but damn me if it doesn't look incredibly fucking cool anyway.

Almost certainly -- it's very high contrast. Some of that could be lighting and exposure, but given the snapshot quality of the picture, a lot of post-production tinkering seems likely.

B. Anthony Stewart. Oil Rigs on Signal Hill. California. 1941.

.

I get a very Antonioni vibe (circa Red Desert) from this one. B. Anthony Stewart was a house photographer at National Geographic, but he has a surprisingly keen eye for striking tableaux and unusual juxtapositions.

A few more samples of his work:

Bible Belt Baptism (at the Guardian)

The Mayflower II Enters New York Harbor (at Nat-Geo)

Stopping to pick flowers (found on Reddit)

(He has a real knack for situating figures in landscapes.)

Hmm... if she was signing autographs, it would stand to reason that she held some kind of fame, at least in that local community, but I have no idea who she is. Any ideas, Mac?
