Photographers Frank, Herzog, Lindbergh: their work and legacy

In the past week have passed away three photographers: Robert Frank, Fred Herzog, and Peter Lindbergh. Their photographic work, stories, structure, and practice have provided important elements to my photography education. The following is a brief summary who they were, the work for which they’re best known, and examples of their images from Instagram and documentary videos from YouTube.

“Why are they looking at me?”

Bruno Benini (1925-2001) was one of the most influential fashion photographers in Australia. With designer, fashion stylist, and publicist, Hazel Craig, they created a successful partnership and produced fashion photography which now provides a historical framework to contemporary Australian style.

The Powerhouse Museum purchased the Benini photography archive in 2009, and a digital installation of a number of Benini’s photographs took place as an exhibition inside Sydney’s Queen Victoria Building in the (southern) spring of 2010. Shown at centre is a copy of Benini’s portrait of model Lynn Gleeson in a studio-session from 1959.

The Queen Victoria Building is located in Sydney’s downtown area or Central Business District; the nearest City train station is Town Hall.

I made the photo above on 5 October 2010. This post was published originally on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com.
