Space Framed Week 5

Next week, we will be back to the usual time- 11, and will be looking at the photography of the street.

William Klein, St Patrick's Day, fifth avenue 1954-55

Caroline and Stefan will be looking at William Klein, in particular his book 'Life is Good and Good For You in New York Trance Witness Revels' and reading Chapter 17 in 'Bystander' by Joel Meyerowitz and Colin Westerbeck.

Garry Winogrand

Luke, Orla and Su will be tackling Garry Winogrand;his book 'The Man in the Crowd' will be put on temporary reserve in the library, plus the last chapter of 'Bystander' contains some more context.

Stephen Shore, Beverly Boulevard and La Brea Avenue, Los Angeles, California, June 21 1975.

John, Brian and Sarah will be examining Stephen Shore's work, in particular 'Uncommon Places' but also delving into later aspects of his work and how it has developed over time.

Also, New Topographics is still on temporary reserve. The introductory essay by Britt Salvesen is worth a read, especially in light of our discussion today.
