  5. Most of my photos are grounded in people, I look for the unguarded moment, the essential soul peeking out, experience etched on a person’s face.” - Steve McCurry

  7. Gallery Hopping: Discovering Vivian Maier 

    Photography fans, don’t miss Vivian Maier: Photographs of Children, a beautiful exhibition on view from July 17 - September 13 in Toronto, Canada.

    A previously unknown photographer, Vivian Maier (American, 1926-2009), attained recognition when she auctioned off her belongings in 2007, including her extraordinary street portraits of city-dwellers in the 20th century. For the majority of her life, the superbly talented Maier held her gift under wraps, while maintaining a career as a Chicago-based nanny. Although she kept her images private, Vivian Maier was never without her camera. She had a great ability to document beautifully candid moments in the lives of her subjects.

    Starting this Thursday, July 17th, the Stephen Bulger Gallery is showing a number of Maier’s black and white photographs, selected from her inventory of 120,000. The subjects of this collection are primarily children — those that Maier watched over and those that interested her throughout her travels. Each portrait documents an incredible backstory and provokes a specific emotion, proving that Maier truly was ahead of her time. After taking a look at the collected works, it becomes clear to any viewer why Vivian Maier has accumulated such instant, posthumous prominence as a 20th century photographer. Be sure to check out the exhibit, for each work in Vivian Maier: Photographs of Children brilliantly upholds the expression that a picture is worth a thousand words.

  9. Norman Parkinson was exactly what you would imagine and hope a fashion photographer in the second half of the 20th Century would be - dapper, exacting, a little louche, and unerringly orientated towards beauty.
