In one way or another, our perception of the world is influenced by multiple factors that not necessarily need to be defined. Domination of sensuous impressions corrected by meditation, or, at other times, thought dictating the emotions and moods. Art easily brings together both and probably serves to synthesize them. Photography has its own responsibilities: starting at general organization of sensor mechanics (to look) it intends to help see (through lens and viewfinder) exactly what shall become art, is to be art and is in some sense programmed to be art initially, so to speak, by God.

From 1800 landscape painting experienced an impressive heyday. Within this genre, artists paid increasing attention to the motif of clouds. These strange, elusive formations consisting of water, air and light appear as conveyors of different emotions and messages. Bushy clouds in a sunny sky contribute significantly to the positive atmosphere of a landscape and seem to be an almost indispensible feature in idyllic depictions of nature.

Photography | The Museum of Modern Art, New York, United-States | Wednesday 6 March 2013 - Monday 12 August 2013
Bill Brandt is a founding figure in photography’s modernist traditions, and this exhibition represents a major critical reevaluation of his heralded career. Brandt’s distinctive vision—his ability to present the mundane world as fresh and strange—emerged in London in the 1930s, and drew from his time in the Paris studio of Man Ray. His visual explorations of the society, landscape, and literature of England are indispensable to any understanding of photographic history and, arguably, to our understanding of life in Britain during the middle of the 20th century.
