The Company The most important figures that stand at the heart of American photography, are considered Edward steak (1879 — 1973) (or by birth — Shtayhen) and Alfred Styglits (1864 — 1946).
The concept of creativity, and they are pretty close to the stage piktorealizm, and then — in the real (modern) photos. I would have said it was a strong photographic talent Styglitsa and technical perfection, performance and photographic shyrokaabsyazhnasts steak.
Assessment of the level of creativity steak, probably a bit exaggerated in American art history, but well-founded reasons for these estimates.
Steak served with hot promoter and organizer of the photographic art of his social development and recognition (museums, galleries, exhibitions, articles, funds, etc.). Furthermore, it was very creatively prolific photographer and gave a half-century photographs of life.
Interestingly, the steaks are not moved away from the influence of piktorealizm until the end of his days. In the first period of his creativity piktarealnyya portrait compositions and landscapes affect adtochanastsyu fine art, artsy sound composition and full of emotional coldness, despite salazhavasts and sickly demonstration of beauty, bordering already with a bad taste.
But next there are photos taken directly where motifs are found alive, subtle charm and typical photographic view of the world. Steak as an artist to keep pace with the development of photography and all had their say. But, once again, to break away from the concept of the image pryharoshvannya it was difficult, and it is usually manifested in him constantly.
My problem, however, is not to talk about the creation of a steak, and demonstrate a good photograph (plus one if the subject deserves.) Good pictures in a steak is.
Take a look photo, which he made in 1907, possibly during his trip to Europe (Photo 1). In a photo taken "feshenebelnyya" yes? Us. Styled photo Lyartsiga. Direct dynamic frame. Came home from somewhere (the event ended), and they're going to sit down in a convertible. They are beautiful white dress with gathers and twine, white shoes, as Cinderella, her head luxurious hats with flowers (no hat, but a whole klyumba). Snapshot actually reportage called "After the races" (competition). Apparently, located near gipadrom. Perhaps there is even something happened, like, and if Wronski fell from his horse, "Anna gasped loudly," etc. (as they say, style — a man).
And it would be good to steaks stamped this genre pictures normally (as it is at the same time do young Lyartsig) and found it to photographic appeal. Steak also considered himself an artist and decided, apparently, to improve it. But walked away from the photographic dakumentalnastsi, addrukavavshy filming technique bramoyl. (Bramoyl — this technique to the point of painting and photography. Emulsion positive razmyakchaetstsa, zadublivaetstsa and achieved relief structure on which they write with a brush and oil-based printing ink).
In principle, however, turned out not worse, live photographic base you can still see the image of a beautiful and breathes time. Photographer-artist spared no paint to mute secondary and identify the main thing. Only, apparently, even from the perspective of fotaestetyki of the time, you think, why was all this "work"?
Nevertheless, this story and photos in a manner yet beautiful. I must say that the steak would work not only in bramoyli. He had a difficult fatatehnikay gum arabic, which is even closer to the painting. In 1904, he took a picture of a pond at the rising of the moon, and made the picture in the art gum arabic (by the way, in the artistic sense of the weak). Gum arabic steak lay until 2006, until it was bought at auction for 2.9 million dollars. So history is valued not so distant photos and the name of the photographer, formed creativity and (mostly) by generations of art historians.
In a lot of good-quality steaks, carefully made portraits, landscapes and even the kinds of urban development. Leafing through the works of the famous photographer, I came here on this beautiful photo (a little uncharacteristic for a steak), filled with a thin aching beauty (1908). We call it "Tsvituchae tree" (Photo 2).
On the shore of the lake in a dark forest slope shot tsvituchae wood (cherry, plum or mirabelki), lit by the sun. The breeze has freckles water on which float fallen petals. In the eastern poetry (and not only in the east) on a plot written thousands of poems.
Aesthetics tsvituchaga tree over the water indicates modernist shifts in artistic consciousness. Here is an insight into the shadowy network of thin layers of splendor, the state that is rapidly changing and is coming back again. In these perpetual changes of eternal beauty lives whole philosophy underlying the eastern religion of peace AC (Buddhism, Zen Buddhism, etc.). Modernism, and along with it the European public are aware of it in terms of artistic aesthetics.
