View York Exhibition & Book in Munich

Forthcoming from Galerie CLAIR, Munich

As a world stage, New York seems to provide an almost inexhaustible source of inspiration to photographers from a wide variety of backgrounds.

Some of them live or have lived there, many however are just passers-by, who have cultivated a secret pact with this city as they return over and over again. Featuring selected works from the years 1954–2010, including some previously unpublished works by renowned photographers, VIEW YORK offers nine personal insights into the essence of this super-metropolis.

Leonard Freed, Gundula Friese, Erich Hartmann, Guy Le Querrec, Andrew Lichtenstein, Inge Morath, Hally Pancer, Klavdij Sluban and Patrick Zachmann

My Viewpoint Exhibition at Venice Arts Gallery

My Viewpoint Program Exhibition at Venice Arts

On August 6, 2011, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm, Venice Arts Gallery will hold an opening reception for Shipping & Receiving: Photographs and Letters between Venice, CA and Dupree, SD. The exhibition highlights a photographic and personal storytelling exchange between youth in Venice and youth on the Cheyenne River Reservation in South Dakota and wil feature texts and panoramic, collaborative double-exposure photographs, paired with over thirty black-and-white and color photographs taken by youth who have participated in the My Viewpoint Photography Program since its inception in 2005.

This is the first public exhibition of their work. Inge Morath Award winner Emily Schiffer, founder of the My Viewpoint Photography Program, wil accompany five of the students from the Cheyenne River Reservation to Los Angeles for the exhibition. “This exchange and exhibition has helped our students to view their artwork within a larger context. The students who participated in the exchange have been studying photography for years, but this project enabled them to really look at their lives, identify what is important to them, and turn that reflection into photographs,” says Schiffer.

Each June, the winner of the Inge Morath Award is selected by the full membership of Magnum Photos, and the Director of the Inge Morath Foundation, during the annual Magnum meeting. The recipient of the 2011 Inge Morath Award is Zhe Chen, for her project Bees.

Brought up in Beijing, China, Zhe Chen is a photo-based artist currently living in Los Angeles. In the past four years, Zhe has created a series of projects focusing on body modification, human hair, identity confusion, post-traumatic stress disorder, and memory. Chen’s winning project is a document of self-mortification among a community of disaffected Chinese. The difficult nature of her subject is made more complex by Chen’s lyrical approach, identifying the physical self-destruction of her subjects as an act of spiritual cleansing.

Inge Morath featured in Foam 26: Happy Issue


In Happy, we explore happiness and its relationship with photography; photos that make us smile, the memories they evoke, the humour that makes us laugh.

Happy as a state of mind immediately draws us back to our childhood, when this innocent straight forward feeling is more common without being consciously aware of it. As we grow older and our self-consciousness takes over, happiness seems much more difficult and complex to achieve…

Inge Morath Award, 2011 Guidelines

The Inge Morath Award, 2011

Magnum Foundation LogoThe Magnum Foundation and the Inge Morath Foundation announce the tenth annual Inge Morath Award. The annual prize of $5,000 is awarded by the Magnum Foundation to a female documentary photographer under the age of 30, to support the completion of a long-term documentary project. One award winner and up to two finalists are selected by a jury composed of Magnum photographers.

Inge Morath was an Austrian-born photographer who was associated with Magnum Photos for nearly fifty years. After her death in 2002, the Inge Morath Foundation was established to manage Morath’s estate and facilitate the study and appreciation of her contribution to photography. Because Morath devoted much of her enthusiasm to encouraging women photographers, her colleagues at Magnum Photos established the Inge Morath Award in her honor. The Award is now given by the Magnum Foundation as part of its mission of supporting new generations of socially-conscious documentary photographers, and is administered by the Magnum Foundation in collaboration with the Inge Morath Foundation.

Past winners of the Inge Morath Award include: Lurdes R. Basolí (Spain, ’10) for Caracas, The City of Lost Bullets and Claire Martin (Australia, ’10) for Selections from The Downtown East Side and Slab City; Emily Schiffer (US, ’09) for Cheyenne River; Kathryn Cook (US, ’08) for Memory Denied: Turkey and the Armenian Genocide; Olivia Arthur (UK, ’07) for The Middle Distance; Jessica Dimmock (US, ’06) for The Ninth Floor; Mimi Chakarova (US, ’06) for Sex Trafficking in Eastern Europe; Claudia Guadarrama (MX, ’05) for Before the Limit; and Ami Vitale (US, ’02), for Kashmir.
