"As a long-time friend of hers, I have to admit that I’m partial to her code of professionalism and staunch independence. Not many photographers anymore are as DIY as Conner is. As any reproduction will fail to convey the layers of darkness in a print such as [this one], audiences will have to visit the Gitterman Gallery [in New York City] in person to learn what her many ex-students have known for years: in an art world crowded with fake or ephemeral talents, Conner is the real deal." —Richard B.

Inside Irish Nomad Communities

German photographer Birte Kaufmann has spent time over the last three years with a family of Irish gypsies, referred to as The Travellers, staying in their Volkswagen camper. Traditionally the Travellers were accepted in their country, like migrant workers, but in today’s world, they live on the fringes of society.

One family she depicts, a man with nineteen children and grandchildren, shuffles between living on the side of the road and at a halting site.

I have often heard the sentence, ‘Birte, the women are over there! Go there!’”

Salvage, Newfoundland and Labrador. Situated at the tip of the Eastport Peninsula this charming and historic village offers rugged coastal scenery and fine examples of vernacular architecture in its carefully restored fishing stages. This is the oldest community on the Eastport Peninsula and among the earliest permanent settlements continuously inhabited in the province and the country. There are fewer than 200 permanent residents in Salvage but increasingly more visitors make Salvage their summer home.

We are lucky to live close enough to visit a couple of times each year, and even luckier to be there when crab is in season and the slightly weather-beaten Sea Breeze pub is open to serve a fine meal.

Consuelo Kanaga, Young Girl in Profile, 1948.
In the Jewish Historical Museum Amsterdam I saw the exhibition Masterpieces from the Howard Greenberg Collection (From 11 September 2014 until 11 January 2015). When you like my photoblog than you can see several of these photos in real! Approximately 150 photos from the private collection of New York gallery-owner Howard Greenberg will be on display. Greenberg’s collection features icons by famous photographers such as Henri Cartier Bresson, Edward Steichen, Robert Frank, Walker Evans and Dorothea Lange, as well as masterpieces by less well-known photographers such as Consuelo Kanaga and Jerome Liebling.
