You got religion


I suppose my interests are relatively the same now: to fix an image outside time – although I discovered after years and years of working that photography was akin to poetry. The best poetry communicates through mental images, much like an evolving set of photographs. And those images can be pushed and pulled to contain metaphor. They can be threaded together; individual connotations are woven to form deeper meaning. – Mike Lundgren, on photography from this interview in Fotografia.

There was a time when I was constantly looking through Tina Barney’s Theater of Manners because I was also thinking about how to justifiably and unbiasedly photograph family life (She is grappling with it whether she wants to acknowledge it or not.) It’s been a couple years since I’ve thought about that series, so I welcomed the news that four decades worth of images by Tina Barney were on view at Paul Kasmin GalleryBetter than the show though, is that she now also has a website with each series’ gallery deep of images. This is a big upgrade from how I used to few her work back in 2009. Eitherway, looking through I had a few thoughts; Titles are important but can seriously detract too. How did Brian Williams get in there? and Is there anyone else out there making large-format portraits that feel this much like a snapshot?
