Magnum Contact Sheets
An exhibition called Magnum Contact Sheets is currently running at The International Center of Photography in New York City.
In a series that stretches from the 1930s to the present, the exhibit functions as a behind the scenes look at how Magnum Photographers arrived at their often iconic images.
Via ICP:

The images featured—both celebrated, iconic photographs and lesser-known surprises—encompass more than 70 years of history: from the Normandy landings by Robert Capa, the 1968 Paris riots by Bruno Barbey, and the war in Chechnya by Thomas Dworzak, to René Burri’s filmic sequence of close-ups of Che Guevara, classic New Yorkers by Bruce Gilden, and Eve Arnold’s famous portrait of the charismatic and image-savvy Malcolm X.
“The contact sheet embodies much of the appeal of photography itself: the sense of time unfolding, a durable trace of movement through space, an apparent authentication of photography’s claims to transparent representation of reality,” said ICP Associate Curator Kristen Lubben, who organized the exhibition. “It records each step on the route to arriving at a particular image, and thus provides a unique window into the creative process.”…
…The exhibition functions—in the words of Magnum photographer Martin Parr—as an “epitaph to the contact sheet,” marking the end of the analog film era and the rise of digital photography.

Fête du Trône, 1925.
Drawing from its expansive collection of Eugène Atget’s work, the Museum of Modern Art in New York is exhibiting more than 100 of the photographer’s images, with a show title inspired by the artist himself. See more here.

Add this to the growing list of things I need to do.

The best L.A. books? Let’s make a list.

Eeek. I feel bad that I haven’t read any of these books in their entirety. Also, this just reminds me how much I need to get a library card so I can read on my current “recently moved/Brooklyn living/freelance dancer/freelance photographer/perpetual intern/restaurant server/paying back college loans/chasing dreams” income. Woof.

I’ve walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, but haven’t walked my way across the Williamsburg Bridge. I should probably try to do it before it gets freezing cold.

Nom nom nom. Father’s Office in LA has some of the best burgers and fries I’ve ever eaten. I’m not a big ketchup fan, but I would slather everything in peach-pineapple ketchup.
