Our final hour is dedicated to Dora Maar, painter and photographer, and lover and muse to Picasso. She was part of the Paris Surrealist group, which is how she met Picasso.
His images are fun and cheerful. Being commercial, looking at his work is like looking at adverts, but adverts we don’t mind so much 🙂
For the third hour of 5 Hours of Photography, we’ll be looking at Denise Bellon, mother of experimental film maker Chris Marker. She was a photojournalist in Paris in the 1930s and also worked closely with surrealists such as Andre Breton.
Welcome back for the second hour of 5 Hours of Photography, where we’ll be looking at American artist Lee (Elizabeth) Miller (1907-77). I have to say, war photography is really not my thing, but I love Miller’s work.
Let’s have five consecutive hours of photographers! For the first hour we’ll be looking at Hans Bellmer.
