CORINNE DAY’S MAY THE CIRCLE REMAIN UNBROKEN BOOK AND EXHIBITION

“May The Circle Remain Unbroken” was first conceived over two years ago and has been worked on tirelessly ever since. The book is being released by Morel books. Corinne Day’s photographs influenced a generation of fashion and documentary image makers. Her pictures unflinchingly documented her life and relationships with a realist snapshot aesthetic-representing a youth culture set against the glamour of fashion and avoiding fictionalisation or voyeurism. Gaining notoriety both for a scandalous photo of Kate Moss in Vogue in 1993 and for pioneering so-called “grunge” fashion photography, for a time she was exiled from the mainstream fashion media. Corinne later returned to the fashion and art world with works exhibited and collected in galleries and museums worldwide. Corinne Day died in August 2010, and in her first book since includes a series of previously un-published early works. “May The Circle Remain Unbroken” includes a cover designed by the legendary Pablo Ferro inspired by his fonts he developed of Stanley Kubrick’s “Dr. Strangelove”. A selection of photographs from the publication, curated by Corinne’s partner Mark Szaszy in on view at the Gimpel Fils Gallery until November 23rd.

BERENICE ABBOT’S EXHIBITION AT CARLA SOZZANI GALLERY

From November 10th 2013 to January 6th 2014, at Galleria Carla Sozzani — Milan (Italy)

Galleria Carla Sozzani presents an exhibition of Berenice Abbott with a discrete selection from a career that influenced the fields of portraiture, urban landscape, and innovative scientific photography. Born in Ohio in 1898 and spending her life between New York and Paris, Berenice Abbott is one of America’s most outstanding photographers of the 20th century. She fashioned an extensive body of work in a career that explored and helped to define documentary photography and photographic realism. In opposition to the Pictorialism school of Alfred Stieglitz, Berenice Abbott’s images were precise presentations of the real world — visible and invisible — with flinty exactitude and scientific precision.
