moderne photojournalism breaks with tradition.

This is not a manipulated photograph; it is a reference to Marcel Duchamp and his break with tradition.

Like wise, moderne photojournalism breaks with the constraints of realism and the "Decisive Moment" to pursue colourful reflections about the "Decisive Time" In our time is the call to moderne photojournalists and the movement to establish a collective of styles and missions relating to documentation and storytelling.

Deviant Art gets noticed in the Hague

When people get all riled-up about images, whether or not they be called art or deviant art, it stirs interest. Recently and exhibition about such a subject was shown in the Hague. It showcased the work of Hans Bellmer 1902-1975 and Louise Bourgeois 1911-2010. What was amusing, rewarding and slightly ironic was the welcoming 4 meter x 3 meter portrait of Louise by the photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, who's work also bore the brunt of the deviant (Entartete kunst)accusations in the land of the free and the home of the first parliament. Now, what would Adolf have said about that.
