Eva Besnyö

Eva Besnyö  was born in Budapest, Hungary, 1910 and  moved to Berlin, 1930.
When Hitler appeared, she went to Holland where she lived until her death.
Looking back she says that during her two years in Berlin she made her best photographs.

She is famous because she was one of the first street/documentary photographers.
Later she photographed (among other subjects) the Dutch woman rights movement.
She died at the age of 93.

Mike Disfarmer


Disfarmer: A Portrait of America

Disfarmer: A Portrait of America
Trailer 2:30 minutes
by Dennis Mohr

In the small mountain town of Heber Springs, the Arkansas portrait photographer known as Mike Disfarmer captured the lives and emotions of the people of rural America during the two World Wars and the Great Depression. This documentary discovers an American master, his influence on the modern Manhattan art world, and the legacy he left behind in his hometown of Heber Springs.

“Disfarmer” is a documentary exploring the two insular communities of Heber Springs, Arkansas and the Modern Manhattan art world, and the long-dead misanthrope who has unwittingly brought the two together.

Richard Avedon referred to Disfarmer’s photography as “indispensable”; his own series of rural portraits, In the American West, published a decade later, reveals a kinship with - and likely the influence of - Disfarmer's unblinking eye.

How this image was created
Totally dark room
Black background (black clothes that do not reflect)
Floors and the sides are covered with the black fabric so the light doesn’t bounce around
The only white surface:  the white keys of the piano
The strobe is on full power with the snoot, behind my head, pointed at the keys at about 35 degrees.
The camera is rigged with the PW (Powerty Wizard) transmitter
A remote electronic trigger is also connected
ISO 400, wide open aperture 2.8.
Shutter is dragged, under a second
This is to make sure the light saturates the keys real well
The camera is on a timer, triggered by an electronic remote
positioned on the piano music stand.
Then I assumed a position at the piano.

Cooper's Hill Cheese Rolling has been summarized as
 "twenty young men chase a cheese off a cliff and tumble 200 yards to the bottom
 where they are scraped up by paramedics and packed off to hospital."
