Elliott Erwitt: Personal Best
May 20–August 28, 2011
This major retrospective showcases the career of photographer and filmmaker Elliott Erwitt, the recipient of this year's ICP Infinity Award for Lifetime Achievement. Distinguished as both a documentary and commercial photographer, Erwitt has made some of the most memorable photographs of the twentieth century, including portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Kennedy, and Che Guevara, as well as astonishing scenes of everyday life, filled with poetry, wit, and special sense of humor. An active photographer since 1948, Erwitt sought out Edward Steichen, Robert Capa, and Roy Stryker in New York in the early 1950s, and they became his mentors. With Capa's encouragement, Erwitt joined Magnum Photos in 1953. Erwitt is both an eyewitness to history and a dreamer with a camera, whose images have been widely published in the international press and in more than twenty books.
Stephen Ortega is a freelance photographer who lives in New York. Chose
like other young artists live in the neighborhood of Williamsburg
Brooklyn. The speed with which it grows the Big Apple is changing
habitat "human architecture" of that place. The traditional houses
give way to ultra-luxury condominiums, and this contributes to
let the people at the margins of history. The project is Stephen Ortega
retrieve the memory and the faces in this gallery represent a
sense, the guards who fight or at least tries to
return the old "physicality" of the neighborhood, posing provocatively
construction sites and in front of "their streets." Testimonials are authentic
an architectural revolution against which they would fight. Not
because they are opposed to change, but because those proposed denature
a piece of the city. I mean common people against the crane. It is not a
feeling, but a movement of the eyes and soul with which they look
that unfortunately no longer see.

@ The Metropolitan Museum of Art NYC Thru July 31, 2011
Ari Marcopoulos (born 1957) is an Amsterdam-born photographer and filmmaker, living and working in New York and California. As a photographer, film artist and adventurist, Marcopoulos, who began his career in New York City assisting Andy Warhol, transplants himself into the intimate lives of people living on the edge. Artists, snowboarders, musicians and skateboarders have been both muses and commercial subject-matter throughout his quarter century career as a photographer. His stunning landscapes and playful portraiture offer a dramatic take on every day life, and a glimpse into all things awesome. The Berkeley Art Museum presented Marcopoulos’s first mid-career survey in the United States in 2010.
