Famous Photographer Quote #0398

“The camera should be used for a recording of life, for rendering the very substance and quintessence of the thing itself, whether it be polished steel or palpitating flesh.”

Edward Weston


宏觀敘述者 Andreas Gursky

一張照片的價格可以有多高?10萬還是100萬?2011年,在紐約佳士得拍賣會上,德國攝影師Andreas Gursky所拍攝的《Rhein II》(萊茵河)以433萬美金成交,超越美國著名藝術家Cindy Sherman的攝影作品,成為世上最昂貴的照片(這個紀錄在2015年被澳洲攝影師Peter Lik一幅650萬美金的美國羚羊峽谷作品《Phantom》所打破)。這張作品看上去平平無奇,視覺震撼也沒有Andreas Gursky其他作品般強烈,身價何以能比Edward WestonAnsel Adams等攝影大師的作品高幾倍呢?這當然有拍賣的因素,但Andreas Gursky獨特而宏觀的視角,自然也令他成為拍賣場上的常客。   42 more words

Weston's piece of advice

“I would say to any artist: ‘Don’t be repressed in your work, dare to experiment, consider any urge, if in a new direction all the better.”
