Bills Photography Lecture

 Contemporary Photography
Henry Cartier Bresson - one of the first people to use blurriness/movement. He was all about being at the right place at the right time.

Richard Prince - realized you could make a photograph that competed with paintings by blowing them up (wall size, sometimes bigger)

Cindy Sherman - posed herself as a 50's actress' in various settings. The idea in investigating your personal identity photos were fake enough to let you in on the joke. Just a little creepy...
David Leventhaw - photographed real life scenarios with toys. Built models that looked very real.
