Street Photography in the World The Book Volume 1
for sale :
This book is the result of work that the Facebook group “Street Photography in the World” has been doing for years; with it we have tried to collect the best photos posted in the group during the course of its existence. The choice was not easy: in fact, the group has 160,000 active members who send hundreds of photos every day, and it was one of the first to pay tribute to “Street Photography”, at least on Facebook Thanks to the perseverance of its founder Roberta Pastore, the quantity, but especially the quality of the published photos, has grown with the passage of time. The group has an international character, with authors who come from all parts of the world, a proof that this photographic genre has developed in all cultures. The idea is that this publishing initiative is not to be a sporadic one, but should become a regular event, so as to promote those artists who are outside the commercial logic and help them to publish their work. Each author published here has lent his work for free, and remains the sole owner of the published image rights. Thanks are due to those who daily work with passion in the group, and especially to those who will follow closely this editorial initiative, hoping that this work is appreciated

Born in Marijampole in Lithuania, in Tsarist Russia, Izis Bidermanas (1911-1980) runs away in the thirties from the misery of his land to get to the ‘Paris of dreams’, the capital of the painters and the Impressionists. From here, during the war, he is forced to take refuge with his family in the Limousin region.
After the liberation of Limoges, in ’44 he enlisted in the French Forces of the Interior (FFI), fascinated by the young people of the Resistance, which produces extraordinary photographic portraits. After the war he returned to Paris, where he continued his work as a portrait photographing artists, poets, writers and painters who enliven the cultural life of the city. In 1953 he published the book “Paradise on Earth”, made with Colette, where his shots translate into images the words of the writer, which describes the places you loved to go before being immobilized by the disease, such as Desert de Retz or garden Zoological Clères.
From 1949 he began to work for Paris Matchcollaborating from the first issue as a specialist in portrait, and remains in the magazine for twenty years, revealing a reporter atypical anti-event, photographer of those most unlikely. At that time his photographs date back to the work of Marc Chagall, rare examples of his precious ability to be able to capture the mood and the inspiration that move artists during creation. In 1969, devotes an entire opera, “Le Monde de Chagall”, his painter friend.
And ‘especially, however, the’ dream ‘of Paris Izis not stop looking at his photographs, one of the neighborhoods, the banks of the Seine and fairs. In the three works “Paris des Rêves” (1950), “Grand Bal du printemps” (1951) and “Paris des poètes” (1977), outlines the image of an eternal city and ahistorical.
In 1952 he published “Charmes de Londres”, the result of his escape to England with Jacques Prévert and the following year “The Queen’s People,” sull’incoronazione of Queen Elizabeth II. In 1955 he produced “Israël” and ten years later “Le Cirque d’Izis,” the best work of his extensive bibliography, which reveals his passion for the circus world.

Nato a Marijampole in Lituania, nella Russia zarista, Izis Bidermanas (1911-1980) scappa negli Anni Trenta dalla miseria della sua terra per raggiungere la ‘Parigi dei sogni’, capitale dei pittori e degli Impressionisti. Da qui, durante la guerra, è costretto a rifugiarsi con la famiglia nella regione del Limousin. Dopo la liberazione di Limoges, nel ‘44 si arruola nelle Forze Francesi dell’Interno (FFI), affascinato dai giovani della Resistenza, dei quali realizza straordinari ritratti fotografici.
Finita la guerra ritorna a Parigi, dove prosegue la sua attività di ritrattista fotografando artisti, poeti, scrittori e pittori che animano la vita culturale della città. Nel 1953 pubblica il libro “Paradiso terrestre”, realizzato con Colette, in cui i suoi scatti traducono in immagini le parole della scrittrice, la quale descrive i luoghi che amava frequentare prima di essere immobilizzata dalla malattia, come i Désert de Retz o il giardino zoologico di Clères.
Dal 1949 inizia a lavorare per Paris Match, collaborando fin dal primo numero come specialista del ritratto, e rimane nella rivista per vent’anni, rivelandosi un reporter atipico, dell’anti-avvenimento, fotografo dei soggetti più improbabili. A quel periodo risalgono le sue fotografie di Marc Chagall al lavoro, rare testimonianze della sua preziosa capacità di riuscire a cogliere l’animo e l’ispirazione che muovono gli artisti durante la creazione. Nel 1969 dedica un’intera opera, “Le Monde de Chagall”, all’amico pittore.
E’ soprattutto, però, il ‘sogno’ di Parigi che Izis non smette di cercare nelle sue fotografie, tra i quartieri popolari, le rive della Senna e le fiere. Nelle tre opere “Paris des revês” (1950), “Grand Bal du printemps” (1951) e “Paris des poètes” (1977), delinea l’immagine di una città eterna e astorica.
Nel 1952 pubblica “Charmes de Londres”, frutto della sua fuga in Inghilterra con Jacques Prévert e l’anno successivo “The Queen’s People”, sull’incoronazione della Regina Elisabetta II. Nel 1955 realizza “Israël” e dieci anni più tardi “Le Cirque d’Izis”, la migliore opera della sua ricca bibliografia, che rivela la sua passione per il mondo circense.

!VEE SPEERS: BORDELLO !
from 4 March – 12 April 2014
‘She shows beauty where beauty can be terribly absent’ Karl Lagerfeld
The romantic decadence of Paris nightlife in the 1920s and 30s (eternalized most famously by the photographs of Brassai) comes to life afresh in this series of sensuous photos shot
on location in former bordellos where the lavish decors have survived intact.
Vee Speers, an Australian artist who has lived in Paris for more than 20 years, has created
edgy photos that play with seduction, sensuality and femininity.!The photographs have been printed using a hand-rendered Fresson charcoal process which gives a more authentic, painterly quality to the images.
Vee Speers was born in Australia and has lived in Paris since 1990. Her timeless portraits, including ‘The Birthday Party’, have been exhibited and published worldwide and are part of many private and museum collections including the Elton John Collection, Michael
Wilson Collection, DZ Bank, Museum 21C Kentucky, George Eastman House, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Clerici Collection Italy. Speers has published two books: Bordello
with a foreword by Karl Lagerfeld (Ear Books, 2005), and The Birthday Party
(Dewi Lewis, 2008).
