Photographisme : William Klein, Gérard Ifert, Wojciech Zamecznik | Exhibition catalogue
The dialogue between photography and plastic arts is prolific during the two decades that followed the end of WWII (1945-1969).
Gérard Ifert (Bâle, 1929), William Klein (New York, 1928) and Wojciech Zamecznik (Varsovie, 1923-1967) invented between 1950 and 1960 new expressions of "photo-graphism". With the use of luminous vibration, rythmic effects and colourfull settings, the three artists tried to imitate dynamic sensations such as speed, the experience of crowd or ultramobility.
This book presents 200 photographs and documents, most of them never shown to the public. They shed a new light on an important part of the History of relations between photographies and graphical art in the post-war period.
A text written by Julie Jones replaces Photographism in the history of photography, and three texts of Karolina Lewandowska focus on the personal history of each artists.
