Arthur Lavine

Woman Leaving Store by Arthur Lavine

A beautiful retrospective with photographs from 7 decades (1940 – 2000) by the American photographer Arthur Lavine. It’s also very interesting as a registry of American cities through those decades. (via coisas do arco da velha)

Lavine’s approach in photography has generally been straightforward and journalistic. Always very conscious of forms, light and shadow, he looks for good design and sometimes places incongruous elements together in odd juxtaposition. He likes to photograph with existing light and to show people in action and in real situations. Usually working intuitively, rather than with deliberateness and planning, he moves around a lot to get the best compositions and to capture his subjects as spontaneously as possible.
