Chrønicles: Berlin !

IMG_20140821_154222Back in Berlin ! or should I say I was in berlin .

So much thing going on since Edinburg. The day after my return dad, our lovely assistante & I jumped in a planet to Berlin. There we made an Avant Premiere (private) at the SOHO house, a membership online club were I would really like to enter !

It went very well and with the high demand from a public eager to discover our project, we did a second Avant Premiere (public) thanks to Sebastian. We met very interesting and nice people how helped us in different ways and all of that great time led to a exhibition proposal ! Can’t complain, but it has been hard work !! Every day of this year, I spent it working hard on The Chaøs Chrønicles

You can also find many great photography of New York (and more) in the LIFE Archives 

This post was suppose to be an introduction to Jacob Riis‘s photography work from the 19th century using as subjects the deploring sanitary and health conditions in the New York tenement… I discovered his work trough a great book called ”How the other half lives” i happened to posses an old edition of the book with very fine printings! But… I change my mind and decided to show an other face of the city, more underground; at the time were graffiti and vandalism were at their apogee. (Some photos are dated from the 20’s but what did you expect i’m a vintage lover ; ) )

Enjoy dear Followers

Vous pouvez également voir pleins de photos superbes de New York dans les Archives LIFE

Ce post était supposé être une courte introduction au travail de Jacob Riis. Photographe americain de la fin du  du 19 ème, ayant pour sujet principal les conditions de vie des immigrés et la classe moyenne dans les bidonvilles New Yorkais.. J’ai découvert ses photos à travers un livre intitulé ”how the other half lives” qui est une approche journalistique de la situation de vie de l’époque. Mais … j’ai changé d’avis et décidé de montrer une autre facette de la ville qui ne dort jamais; un aspect plus underground, a l’époque ou le graffiti et le vandal était a leur apogée. (Certaines photos sont datées des années 20 mais qu’espériez vous je suis une incorrigible amoureuse du retro! )

Enjoy
