FEATURED IMAGE

Hellen van Meene: The Years Shall Run Like Rabbits

Dutch photographer Hellen van Meene "has described how the images she envisages exert a forceful, physical pull on her to make them," Victoria and Albert Museum senior photography curator Martin Barnes writes in Aperture's new release, The Years Shall Run Like Rabbits. "'If I can't make it, I get sick; if I can't make the photos, I can't breathe.' The dynamic between the model and photographer alone is not enough to complete an understanding of these images, which take a deliberately performative stance. Our role as spectators is the missing third element in their reading. Whether consciously calculated or not, Van Meene's photographs leave room for us as viewers to interpret their intention. They operate by using and confounding the accepted and culturally assimilated visual codes of various kinds of photographic imagery—from portraiture to pornography and documentary to fashion–and reinterpret these in the arena of fine art." Featured image is "Untitled" (1995).

Aperture Foundation

Aperture, a nonprofit foundation dedicated to promoting photography, was founded in 1952 by photographers Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Barbara Morgan, and Minor White; historian Beaumont Newhall; and writer/curator Nancy Newhall; as well as Melton Ferris, Ernest Louie, and Dody Warren. In the 1960s, Aperture expanded to include the publication of books (over five hundred to date) that comprise one of the most comprehensive and innovative libraries in the history of photography and art.

Key Writings on Photography

Key Writings on PhotographyAs Robert Adams notes, “Art is by nature self-explanatory;” what writing about art can do is heighten the necessity of the work. Writers like Gerry Badger, Philip Gefter, Beaumont Newhall and John Szarkowski are famously possessed of this ability, and bring an infectious fondness for the art that has made their books as necessary as the photographs they celebrate, while photographers like Adams and Henri Cartier-Bresson supply a practitioner’s perspective.

MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles)

Founded in 1979, MOCA is the only museum in Los Angeles devoted exclusively to contemporary art. It is committed to the collection, presentation, and interpretation of work produced since 1940 in all media, and to preserving that work for future generations. In a remarkably short time, MOCA has developed one of the nation's most renowned permanent collections. Now numbering over 5,000 works and steadily growing, this invaluable cultural resource provides extensive opportunities for education and enjoyment to thousands of national and international visitors. Today the museum is housed in three unique facilities: MOCA Grand Avenue, The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, and MOCA Pacific Design Center. The flagship MOCA store is in the courtyard of their Grand Avenue location, but the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA and the MOCA Pacific Design Center also have their own shops, where visitors can find a wide range of art and design books and gift items, from the latest of MOCA's own publications to Murakami limited edition posters and plush toys. >>visit museum store website
