Exhibition
London: Vee Speers
Bordello
10/03/2014 - United Kingdom , written by L'Oeil de la Photographie

Vee Speers, an Australian artist who has lived in Paris for more than 20 years, has created edgy photos that play with seduction, sensuality and femininity. She is fascineted by the romantic decadence of Paris nightlife in the 1920s and 30s (eternalized most famously by the photographs of Brassai). 

Exhibition
New York: The Metropolitan Museum, Charles Marville
10/03/2014 - United States , written by Jonas Cuénin

Having been the subject of an exhibition last September in Washington, Charles Marville, the photographer of 19th century Paris, is moving to New York. One hundred black-and-white photographs, many of which are on loan from the Musée Carnavalet, the Musée d’Orsay and the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, will be on display at the Metropolitan Museum through May 4, 2014. An engraver by trade, he turned to photography in 1850.

Exhibition
Melbourne : Rebecca Dagnall
In Tenebris
10/03/2014 - Australia , written by Alison Stieven-Taylor

In her latest exhibition, “In Tenebris”, which is Latin for ‘in darkness’, photographic artist Rebecca Dagnall explores the concept of the Australian gothic drawing on colonial literature which she says is where the notion of the gothic was first seen in Australian culture. Within this framework Dagnall has created a series of 13 photographs that invite the viewer into a dark landscape that is at once recognizable and unfamiliar.

Festival
Tokyo Art Fair 2014
by Nicole Berry
10/03/2014 - Japan , written by L'Oeil de la Photographie

As an artist photographer from California who lives and works out of Tokyo, this is what caught my eye at Tokyo Art Fair. While it was great to see the big names in Japanese photography such as Daido Moriyama, Nobuyoshi Araki, Eikoh Hosoe, Issei Suda and Noriaki Yokosuka at the main Tokyo galleries such as Taka Ishii, Emon, MEM and Zen Foto, I really liked exploring outside of the established photography scene.

Portfolio
New York: Food Trucks
Claude Guillaumin
10/03/2014 - United States , written by L'Oeil de la Photographie

Instead of photographing New York in its verticality, I tried to show its vibrant street life against a background of shop windows and signs. At first, my eye was caught by delivery trucks, buses and the high-quality graphic design. Then I discovered the incredible diversity of the city’s food trucks.

Interview
Bruno Mouron & Bernard Wis : HCB trapped by the Paparazzi
10/03/2014 - France , written by Gilles Decamps

In 1980, as a young photographer at Paris Match, I was called in with my sidekick, Bernard Wis, to see our boss, Roger Thérond. Thinking we were in trouble, we walked sheepishly into his office. But we weren’t in trouble. He assigned to us a mission which obviously meant a lot to him. Delighted to have his trust, we accepted without further discussion.
