Exposiciones que me gustaría ver. Lewis Hine IPC New York.


En el International Center of Photography en Nueva York se acaba de abrir una exposición de uno de los grandes fotógrafos americanos, de esos pocos fotógrafos que todo el mundo ha visto alguna foto.
Son pocas las fotos ( Fundación Mapfre)que he visto directamente de este gran fotógrafo


 y, si bien, se centra la calidad de su foto en su carácter documental yo pienso, sencillamente, que tenía la calidad suprema del fotógrafo como es ver aquello que los demas no son capaces de ver....aunque lo tengan delante.
Sus fotos demuestran el trabajo de los niños en las fábricas y también las difíciles condiciones de trabajo de los obreros de la construcción pero también es ese fotógrafo que es capaz de sacar su cámara a la calle y hacerse un autorretrato-sombra- con gente, autorretrato que, en algún caso incluye la propia cámara.
En un post anterior comente un álbum de fotos sobre el Asilo Durán de Barcelona que "mostraba" la buena enseñanza que se daba a los asilados, un álbum lujoso, un álbum publicitario de la labor social. Sin embargo como comento en el post la realidad era la contraria, un centro con difíciles, duras, muy duras condiciones para los asilados

Fotografía Documental. Asilo Durán Escuela de Reforma Barcelona

Dos fines, dos situaciones, dos muy diferentes cualidades de fotógrafo, curiosamente realizadas, casi, en las mismas fechas de comienzo del siglo XX




Hine’s photographs proved instrumental in raising public awareness of child labor abuse and helped to instigate initial reforms. These images also represented some of the earliest and most significant contributions to American social documentary photography. In the years following World War I, Hine set out to create a sympathetic portrait of working-class Americans, emphasizing their contributions to American society
