Gallery of Fine Art Photography - Atlanta GA


Vivian Maier Developed – Ann Marks

Presented October 5th at Lumière

Lumière is pleased to post the video of the gallery talk given by author Ann Marks. She discussed her new book – Vivian Maier Developed: The Untold Story of the Photographer Nanny. In this definitive biography, Marks discovered the full story of the photographer’s extraordinary life, revealing Maier’s profoundly intelligent, empathetic and inspired artistry. All that behind a veneer detached from life around her.

Marks spent thirty years as a senior corporate executive including serving as chief marketing officer for Dow Jones/Wall Street Journal. After retirement, she put her research and analytical skills to use as an amateur genealogist unlocking the mysterious life of photographer Vivian Maier. Marks examined Maier’s 140,000 image archive and extensively researched her family history, both in France and the United Stated. She is now the authority for information related to the photographer’s life and work.

Celebrating the work of Alexander Rodchenko born on this day in 1891. Rodchenko was a Russian artist, sculptor, photographer and graphic designer. He was one of the founders of constructivism and Russian design. Rodchenko was one of the most versatile Constructivist and Productivist artists to emerge after the Russian Revolution. He worked as a painter and graphic designer before turning to photomontage and photography. His photography was socially engaged, formally innovative, and opposed to a painterly aesthetic. Concerned with the need for analytical-documentary photo series, he often shot his subjects from odd angles—usually high above or below—to shock the viewer and to postpone recognition. He wrote: “One has to take several different shots of a subject, from different points of view and in different situations, as if one examined it in the round rather than looked through the same key-hole a#lumieregallery&#AlexanderRodchenkol#rodchenkon#sovietphotographyhenko

Celebrating the work of Robert Glenn Ketchum on his 75th birthday. Ketchum's imagery and books have helped to define contemporary color photography while at the same time addressing critical national environmental issues. This has made him one of the most successful artist/activists in American history. His work in Alaska illustrate this point, first in the Tongass Rain Forest, where his images were credited with helping to pass the Tongass Timber Reform Bill of 1990. One of his current efforts is in Southwest Alaska, aimed to protect the largest wild salmon habitats from the ill-advised Pebble Mine. Wishing you many more years to continue your work!!
