Green Fields

I want to run away
from this place
I want to get lost in a forest
Find a green field
And throw myself on the ground
Like a little child
Feeling the grass on my body
The smell of the earth
The beauty of the sky
The music of the birds
The sounds of nature all around me
I let the wind guide my body
As I dance through the rhythm
Of that sound
Me and nature become one.
Finally I found the place I belong.

Eve Arnold (born April 21, 1912- Jan 4 2012) was an American photojournalist. She joined Magnum Photos agency in 1951, and became a full member in 1957. Arnold was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to immigrant Russian-Jewish parents, William (born Velvel Sklarski) and Bessie Cohen (born Bosya Laschiner). Her interest in becoming a photographer began in 1946, when she worked for a photo-finishing plant in New York City. She briefly learned photographic skills in 1948 from Harper’s Bazaar art director Alexei Brodovitch at the New School for Social Research in Manhattan. Arnold is best known for her images of actress Marilyn Monroe on the set of Monroe’s last (1961) film, The Misfits, but she took many photos of Monroe from 1951 onwards. An exhibition of her previously unseen photos of Monroe was displayed at the Halcyon Gallery in London in May 2005. Monroe trusted Arnold more than any other photographer. Not only did Arnold photograph VIPs such as Queen Elizabeth II, Malcolm X, and Joan Crawford, she traveled extensively around the world, photographing in China, Russia, South Africa and Afghanistan. In 1980, she had her first solo exhibition, which featured her photographic work done in China at the Brooklyn Museum in New York City. In the same year, she received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Society of Magazine Photographers. In 1995, she was made a fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and elected Master Photographer by New York’s International Center of Photography. She also did a series of portraits of American Presidents’ wives. Arnold left the United States in the early 1960s with her son, Francis, moving to England, which eventually became her adopted home. In England, while working for the UK Sunday Times, she began to seriously use colour as a medium for photography. In her adopted homeland, she was later appointed a member of the Advisory Committee of the National Media Museum formerly the Museum of Photography, Film & Television in Bradford in 1997

When the Vandenberg ship sunk, just south of Key West three years ago, it was actually a deliberate move to create an artificial reef. And when Andreas Franke visited the wreck in 2009, he was inspired.

Franke, a photographer, created an art exhibition that would become known as much for its unique beauty as is unique location.

The exhibit, titled: “The Vandenberg: Life Below The Surface,” consists of 12 prints—depictions of everyday life, such as a woman doing laundry, a girl chasing butterflies, and young boys stealing gum—all very “Modern Americana” style, in the vein of Norman Rockwell. But what makes Franke’s art unique is that the subjects are all underwater.

Robert Doisneau (14 April 1912 – 1 April 1994) was a French photographer. In the 1930s he used a Leica on the streets of Paris; together with Henri Cartier-Bresson he was a pioneer of photojournalism. He is renowned for his 1950 image Le baiser de l’hôtel de ville (Kiss by the Town Hall), a photo of a couple kissing in the busy streets of Paris. Robert Doisneau was appointed a Chevalier (Knight) of the National Order of the Légion d’honneur in 1984.
Robert Doisneau was known for his modest, playful, and ironic images of amusing juxtapositions, mingling social classes, and eccentrics in contemporary Paris streets and cafes. Influenced by the work of André Kertész, Eugène Atget, and Henri Cartier-Bresson, in over twenty books he presented a charming vision of human frailty and life as a series of quiet, incongruous moments.
Doisneau’s work gives unusual prominence and dignity to children’s street culture; returning again and again to the theme of children at play in the city, unfettered by parents. His work treats their play with seriousness and respect. In his honour, and owing to this, there are several primary schools named after him.
