Tuesday, Matt and I went to the Milwaukee Art Museum to see the exhibit COLOR RUSH: 75 Years of Color Photography. Ever since I heard about it and read about it in Shutterbug Magazine, I knew it'd be something I would love. Sure, there were the usual suspects: Steichen, Weston, Irving Penn, Stephen Shore, William Eggleston, Helen Levitt, Cindy Sherman, Laurie Simmons, et al. There were also a lot of photographers and processes I hadn't heard of. Thankfully, I usually carry around a pen and a notebook/planner. I wrote down a lot of names and processes that I can't wait to explore further. Photography was prohibited in the exhibit so I have don't have any photos of it. I called the museum before we went to clarify their photographing policies and adhered to them so I wouldn't get reprimanded by one of many museum workers patrolling the galleries. I was allowed to photograph things that belonged to the museum, identified by the placards next to the pieces. This is a photo-heavy post so I decided to include a jump after the teaser photos. Here we go:
this is where i share my photographs, my rambling thoughts, the books i read, and what i create in the kitchen. if that's not enough information, click here for more.
