Late Hungarian photojournalist Paul Almásy traveled across the globe, capturing images of people from all walks of life around the world. Over the course of his career, which spanned more than 60 years, Almásy spent multiple decades documenting the intimate and quaint beauty of Paris and its people. His images are an ode to the city, bearing the photographer’s own love for Parisian culture and lifestyle.
The photographer’s joyful and romantic portraits reveal a sense of life that Parisians in the mid-20th century lived—one filled with simple, daily pleasures. From youths merrily playing instruments and dancing in public parks and streets to older couples taking a moment to get lost in each other’s eyes, there’s an undeniable air about the city of love that transcends time.
Hungarian-born photojournalist Michael Peto’s photographic career is celebrated in this new display organised in collaboration with the University of Dundee. The ten photographs by Michael Peto (1908-1970) taken in London during the 1950s and 1960s to go on display from 17 September 2013 will include the photograph shown to the right of Elizabeth Taylor with Richard Burton during the recording of the acclaimed BBC radio production of Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk Wood in October 1963.
Other celebrated subjects in the display will include Samuel Beckett photographed in his Paris apartment in 1961, Nelson Mandela photographed during a brief visit to London in June 1962, Jennie Lee photographed near the Houses of Parliament in 1965, and Paul McCartney with The Beatles during the making of the Richard Lester directed film Help! (1965). One of Peto’s last sittings featured in the display shows a young Ian McKellen at the time of his success in the Prospect theatre production of Richard II in 1969.
Like the technology of photography itself, the practice of wedding photography has evolved and grown since the invention of the photographic art form in 1826 by Joseph Nicéphore Niépce. In fact, an early photograph, recorded some 14 years after the fact, may be a recreation for the camera of the 1840 wedding of Queen Victoria to Prince Albert. However, in the early days of photography, most couples of more humble means did not hire a photographer to record the actual wedding itself. Until the later half of the 19th century, most people didn’t pose for formal wedding photos during the wedding. Rather, they might pose for a formal photo in their best clothes before or after a wedding. In the late 1860s, more couples started posing in their wedding clothes or sometimes hired a photographer to come to the wedding venue.
Andreas H. Bitesnich was born in Vienna in1964 and he is an Austrian photographer and musician. He has specialized in nude and portrait photography and we can admire his works in international magazines.
Originally working as a retailer, Bitesnich found his passion for photography when his friend, an assistant photographer, showed him his portfolio of black-and-white photographs. Having no education in photography, he started to teach himself all the relevant photography techniques. In 1989, he finally decided to quit his job as a retailer and started working as a professional photographer. Today, he is one of the world’s most renowned nude photographers.
The Belgian Alain Daussin started photography studies in 1977 in a school of the City of Brussels. After three years, he entered the labour market and was soon discovered by the “Photo” magazine (France), and his pictures were published under the heading ‘young talent’. From that time on, he worked for lots of magazines and advertising campaigns such as „Photo”, „Play boy”, „lui”, „Max”, „Telerama”, „Zoom” in France or „Elle”, „Knacht”, „Donna”, „Per lui” in Italy, „Stern” in Germany, for „Amateur Photographer’s” in London.
He specialized in black and white female photography.
Some of his pictures were also spread in the whole world through the publishing of black and white art posters and postcards (Catch publishing, Verkerke, Art Unlimited, Nouvelles Images.).
