Berenice Abbott said : I am not a nice girl, I'm a photographer, I go anywhere ..... by 

I have a huge admiration for those women, artists in the begining of 20th century, I visited an exhibition about B. Abbott in Paris, and I watched a fabulous report about her,could not find any decent video on youtube …..
so just a link to the museum
but this quote from her, just broke my heart because this is all what “art” is (should be ?) about……..
no borders
crossing the mirror, being a free spirit, out of “fashion” (no comment….)
this was taken in a kind of freaking tunnel along La Seine :)
trying to meet the soul of the city ……
(she did that so well with New York)
and I just thought of her here…….

    Bel hommage à cette aventurière de l’image !!! La citation est superbe ( par contre tu t’es trompée de siècle…)

  • Je ne sais pas quelle âge elle avait dans le reportage, une déjà bien vieille d’âme avec l’oeil qui pétille, ell racontait qu’elle avait trainé dans tous les coins de NY et qu’un jour un homme lui a dit que çà n’était pas un endroit pour une “nice girl”…. quelle verve et quelle passion quand elle parlait de son travail, un instant magique, je devrait bien arriver à le retrouver ce reportage
    elle m’a un peu fait penser dans son attitude à Louise Bourgeois
    ces esprit libre, ces petites filles de 90 ans
    ces aventurières

    en fait j’au rais du naitre un peu avant :)

    bon, j’arrête…… t’as peut être autre chose à faire ! :)))
