From the mid 1950s

through the early 1980s,

William Gedney photographed

throughout the United States,

in India, and in Europe.

 

From street scenes

outside

his Brooklyn apartment

to the daily chores

of unemployed

coal miners,

from the indolent

lifestyle of hippies

in Haight-Ashbury

to the sacred rituals

of Hindu worshippers,

Gedney recorded

the lives of others

with remarkable

clarity and poignancy.

Paul Kwilecki Photographs

Photograph Collection

contains

583 black and white prints

made in and around

the town of Bainbridge, Georgia

from 1960-2008.

 

A self-taught photographer,

Kwilecki honed his craft

by photographing

the broad spectrum

of daily life

manifested in Bainbridge

and the rural areas

of Decatur County.

 

From the Shade Tobacco workers

in the fields

to the tombstones in the cemeteries

and the emotional dramas played out

in the Decatur County Courthouse,

Kwilecki documented everything

in an effort to capture

and understand humanity.

 

The collection

of primarily 11x14 inch prints

is organized into subject areas

including:

agriculture, architecture,

county fairs, the Flint River,

industry, neighborhoods,

the Prom, religious life,

shoppers, social events,

stores, Willis Park and,

workers.

'Retronauting':

why we can't stop sharing old photographs

 

Vintage pictures shared online

by accounts such as Retronaut,

HistoryInPix and IndiaHistoryPic

capture moments gone for ever,

but as vividly as the here-and-now.

 

It's a heady mix

of nostalgia and history

Library of Congress

Carol M. Highsmith Archive        USA        1980-2005

 

The online presentation

of the Carol M. Highsmith Archive

features photographs

of landmark buildings

and architectural renovation projects

in Washington, D.C.,

and throughout the United States.

 

The first 23 groups

of photographs contain

more than 2,500 images

and date from 1980 to 2005,

with many views in color

as well as black-and-white.

 

Extensive coverage

of the Library of Congress

Jefferson Building

was added in 2007.

 

The archive is expected

to grow to more than

100,000 photographs

covering all

of the United States.

 

Highsmith,

a distinguished

and richly published

American photographer,

has donated her work

to the Library of Congress

since 1992.

 

Starting in 2002,

Highsmith provided scans

with new donations

to allow rapid online access

throughout the world.

 

Her generosity in dedicating

the rights to the American people

for copyright free access

also makes this Archive

a very special visual resource.

New York's Photo League        USA        1936-1951

 

Sixty years ago this week,

the Photo League fell victim

to Cold War witch hunts

and blacklists,

closing its doors

after 15 intense years

of trailblazing

– and sometimes hell-raising –

documentary photography.

 

From unabashedly leftist roots,

the group influenced

a generation of photographers

who transformed

the documentary tradition,

elevating it to heady

aesthetic heights.

as early as the 1860s
