Rome, Tod Papageorge

If you are lucky enough to be in Rome this Fall, make sure you visit The Rome International Festival of Photography (FotoGrafia Festival Internazionale di Roma - IX Edizione.) This year’s theme is “Can photography see into the future? Is there a future for photography?” Of special note is new work by Tod Papageorge, whose fairly recent appearances in books and exhibitions in the United States and United Kingdom have presented us with work he made in black-and-white in the Seventies.

French Nazi Collaborator Carl Mydans for LIFE

Online now at LIFE magazine's website are disturbing and chilling photographs of the last seven minutes on Earth of six French collaborators, as they are tied to stakes and killed by firing squad in 1944. LIFE photographer Carl Mydans and correspondent John Osborne were  the witnesses to the executions in the French Alps. 66 years ago, almost to the day, resistance fighters came together in Grenoble to execute these men who had worked for the Milice, the Vichy police. These pictures first ran in LIFE on October 2, 1944, just one month after they were taken. The slide show is long and feels complete, and shows the men before, during and after their deaths. The photos taken at the moment of fire are blurry from the shock of the shots, and you swear that you see ghosts beside each man. What we don't see much of is the audience, described on by Osbourne: "They might have been hurrying to a circus.

At the Phila. Photo Arts Center this Fall, events include a "Sideluck Potshow," discounts on workshops and courses, the exhibition "True Fiction," and lectures.

They are also launching Philly Photo Day to celebrate their one-year anniversary, The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center (PPAC) is designating October 28, 2010 as Philly Photo Day.  they are asking anyone to take a picture in Philadelphia on this day, and submit it electronically to PPAC.  they hope to receive hundreds if not thousands of images that will constitute a broad portrait of Philadelphia on that day. Then on November 9, 2010 PPAC will open an exhibition of the submitted images in the Gray Area at the Crane Arts Building.

Southwest at the Mouth of the Columbia River by Robert Adams

I had the good fortune to sit down recently with Assistant Curator of Photographs at the Yale Art Gallery, Joshua Chuang, who gave me a preview of the long-awaited Robert Adams retrospective. (There was one in 1989 organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, but the last twenty years of work obviously got left out.) The event will not only consist of the touring institutional exhibitions, but will also be paired with a series of painstakingly-produced books. Chuang has worked on the entire endeavor directly with Adams himself and Director Jock Reynolds, as well as the master printers at Meridian Printing in Rhode Island over the past few years.
