Consuelo Kanaga: collection Brooklyn Museum

El Brooklyn Museum tiene numerosas fotos de las cuales permite la descarga libre.
Pasear, surfear, por estas webs nos hace descubrir fotos buenas, fotos bonitas, fotos que nos gustan.
Se puede ver la colección de fotos de Consuelo Kanaga que, vistas a través del ordenador, fueron una agradable sorpresa, me parece una excelente fotógrafa (con la salvedad de no haber visto personalmente su obra)

Collections: Consuelo Kanaga

 Consuelo Kanaga, one of the pioneers of modern American photography, began her career as a photojournalist in 1915 in San Francisco. In the 1920s, Alfred Stieglitz inspired her to develop a more aesthetic approach, and a trip to Europe in 1928 awakened her lifelong preoccupation with European modernist painting and the ways in which that work was influenced by the sculpture of Africa. Kanaga successfully combined a Pictorialist aesthetic with a realist strategy, producing handsomely composed and carefully printed images. She was one of few white American photographers in the 1930s to make artistic portraits of African Americans.

Por ejemplo, en mi caso me gustó la siguiente foto:

Y también, por ejemplo, las siguientes.
