Inge Morath. Spain. Chinchon. Public washing. 1955.

.

Inge Morath was one of several Magnum photographers shooting production photos for John Huston's production of The Misfits. This was when she met Arthur Miller, who was married to Marilyn Monroe at the time. By 1962, he and Morath were married. They remained married until she died in 2002. These photographs capture moments on the set of The Misfits, when all of this was still poised to happen.

Seydou Keïta. Bamako. Mali. Untitled. 1959.

The definition of style.

Quote:
Seydou Keïta, Malian photographer (born 1921/23?, French Sudan—died Nov. 21, 2001, Paris, France), fashioned insightful studio portraits of ordinary Malian people, usually posed with intriguing combinations of African and Western clothing and props that he provided. Keïta, who was entirely self-trained, founded a small photography studio in the city of Bamako in 1948 and quickly gained a reputation for formal portraiture. He was designated the Republic of Mali’s official photographer in 1962 and closed his studio to concentrate on his new duties, but he carefully preserved and stored thousands of black-and-white images.

I love those portraits by Seydou Keïta. Beautiful!

Also, a possible influence on Kehinde Wiley (who just painted the official portrait of Pres. Obama)?

Nikos Economopoulos wrote:
In the Balkans, more often than not, events are defined by emotions or by an idealization of the past and certainly not by Western-type reasoning. Life in this explosive area follows an unusual rhythm that brushes with the irrational. The passing from intimacy to hatred, from peace to war, from celebration to slaughter can occur in an untraceable moment. Here, the symbols of the present are set in a landscape of ruined buildings and toppled monuments. They speak of failed hopes and lacking faith. It is a world at once pure and dangerous, a flaming carpet of conflicting identities.

I think he may be my favorite documentary photographer in the thread. Normally I'm more into the artistic work.
