Bill Eppridge: «Woodstock 1969»

Bill Eppridge who took this famous shot of dying Bobby Kennedy caught in Woodstock some great atmosphere pictures. Retronaut presents a nice selection of Eppridge’s work. And this is Bill Eppridge’s flickr stream .

Also the New York Times Blog writes about Bill Eppridge: «In the accompanying audio slide show, Mr. Eppridge speaks about being accepted at Woodstock even though he represented an established and powerful institution — as LIFE was in its day. ‘They knew who I was but they didn’t care,’ he recalls.»

Das Blog Retronaut zeigt eine Portraitserie des Fotografen Alfred Eisenstaedt, die er im Jahre 1953 von Marilyn Monroe in privater Atmosphäre realisierte. Schön, daß es auch ein Bild gibt, welches ihre Füße zeigt.

Mahatma Gandhi by Margaret Bourke-White

Margaret Bourke-White said about herself: «Nothing attracts me like a closed door. I cannot let my camera rest until I have pried it open, and I wanted to be first.» Interestingly, she never joined Magnum Photos.

Senator Robert F Kennedy: «I was assassinated on June 5th in the holy Year of 1968»

9 Jun

Fascinating as it is, a multilevel ironic magazine cover gives life to a dead person who is seemingly running away from it. But from what? From life? From death? Or, alternatively, from both?

And what about the dog? Is the dog dead as well? Or still alive? Basically, a dog is the key to a better understanding – and a better world! Or is the dog – in this case – just hungry and his master Bobby is trying to get away with his food? Or is his master Bobby the food? Did the dog become a member of the mafia family? We can only guess.
