New book about Harold Edgerton'Seeing the Unseen' published by Steidl with MIT Museum Jan 12, 2021
Seeing the Unseen contains iconic photos from the beloved milk drops and bullets slicing through fruit and cards, to less well known but equally compelling images of sea creatures and sports figures in action. Paired with excerpts from Edgerton’s laboratory notebooks, the book reveals the full range of his technical virtuosity and his enthusiasm for the natural and human-built worlds. Essays by Edgerton students and collaborators J. Kim Vandiver and Gus Kayafas explore his approach to photography, engineering and education, while MIT Museum curators Gary Van Zante and Deborah Douglas examine his significance to the history of photography, technology and modern culture.
This book was longlisted for the Kraszna-Krausz Photography and Moving Image Book Awards 2020

"You want to be more vulnerable because that’s how your photography becomes more human. In a sense you want to become a totally blank canvas so the subject or situation reflects him or itself upon you."
Bill Brandt | A RetrospectiveAt Fundación MAPFRE in Barcelona. Oct 9th - Jan 24th, 2021
A major Bill Brandt retrospective is open at the Fundación MAPFRE in Barcelona. The exhibition is installed at the foot of the Mapfre Tower, in a 1,400 square meter space renovated for the occasion.
This large retrospective uses 186 vintage photographs by Bill Brandt , and covers all genres of his photographic output: social reportage, portraiture, landscape and nudes. Significantly, it is the first exhibition covering Brandt that highlights the relationship of the British photographer's work with the theories of surrealism, a movement with which Brandt came into contact during formative stay in Paris in the 1930s.
The exhibition, curated by Ramón Esparza, doctor in Communication Sciences and professor of Audiovisual Communication at the University of the Basque Country, has been produced by Fundación MAPFRE.
