Photo of a photographer.

Here's the prompt for this week at Sepia Saturday...a well dressed woman with an early movie camera.  A photograph of a photographer.  Those are always fun to capture.






Herb Way and one of his photographs in the background on display in the gallery of Black Mountain Center for the Arts.  Herb is one of the professional photographers I'm pleased to know.  His show is " Vietnam: Some of the People"  Beautiful work!


Blog-friend and photographer, Catherine Kerr, has this as her profile on her home page...HERE.



Another great blogger, Linda, from The View from Squirrel Ridge,  uses a modified avatar (cartoon) for her identifying portrait. But there she is holding a camera!



Thank you, fellow bloggers, for allowing me to share your photos of yourselves! I love looking at your work on your blog every day.  This is the "now."  For "then," the sepia folks have some great old photos to share.


One photo-blogger's post included this composite of the photographer at work, but there haven't been any updates on her blog (HERE) since April 2016. 

And here is one of my favorite photographers, not because of his personality, nor all of his art, but because his subject was actually a favorite artist, as well as his wife.

Georgia O'Keefe and Alfred Stieglitz 1944

Poster for Metropolitan Museum, NY. Photo taken in 1918.

Hi Barbara,
I am really enjoying looking through your blogs, and have put a link to this one from mine. The photo of young Georgia O'Keeffe makes me wonder a lot about how she was feeling at the time, the photo captures a certain vulnerability there that many of the later photos seem to miss. Such a wonderful artist, and working to a great age too. The photos of a photographer at work, with the bath... , are delightful!
Best Wishes,
Peter

Love this, and thank you. Never, ever thought I would occupy a page with the magnificent Georgia O'Keeffe.

I don't think I have ever seen a photograph of O'Keeffe with her hair down. Thank you for sharing. She is one of my favorite artists.

The photo of Okeefe with Stieglitz reminds me of Whistler's Mother.

Barbara Rogers said...

Thanks Peter. I never thought about her thoughts...but Stieglitz was pretty old, and she outlived him. I was surprised she was in pics of him that late, because I know they separated early in their careers...not sure when. Glad to hear from you!

Barbara Rogers said...

Thanks Eileen...love seeing your critters. I seem to miss taking pics of critters these days. Mmm, will think about it. Happy weekend to you!

Barbara Rogers said...

So happy to have your innovative portrait photo to share. I love seeing your inspiring posts on your blog each morning!

Barbara Rogers said...

Stieglitz sure was able to capture a serious side of her beauty. I hadn't seen how old he was when this series was taken. I love her flowers more than the skulls. But her perspective on things is so different!

Barbara Rogers said...

Thanks Linda. This was a fun meme this week, and I started working on it as soon as I saw the young photographer woman on Facebook. The blogging friends are people whose posts I read almost daily.

Barbara Rogers said...

Thanks, I never noticed her pose, with the long skirt in front. Actually I'm not sure I'd seen this photo before searching for some photos of photographers.

What a great selection! I just saw the Georgia O'Keefe in Hawaii exhibit at the NY Botanical Garden, and the photo here of her with Steiglitz appears to be from that time. Perhaps to remember her while she was away for several months painting in the Pacific.

What a beautiful smile your first young lady has! And, Georgia O'Keefe and Alfred Stieglitz sure are a handsome couple!

A great collection showing how the camera's or subject's position can add drama to an image. The woman's smile in the first photo becomes the focal point for the photo's perspective.
