Micha Bar-Am – Via Dolorosa on Friday. Ron Havilio was born in Jerusalem in 1950. As a young boy, he lived in Paris, Istanbul and Yaounde, where his father was an Israeli diplomat. He first became interested in painting and photography, and studied art history at the Hebrew University. His photography work was exhibited in the Israel Museum. After working many years in building, he finally moved to cinema, experimenting with the language of the personal film diary. In 1984, he made a two-hour travel diary, never published. In 1987 Havilio started working on his monumental "Fragments — Jerusalem" (1996), a six-hour documentary, personal diary and family saga interwoven with the history of Jerusalem. The film won the Grand Prize in Yamagata (Japan) in 1997. Following their marriage in 1970, Ron and Jacqueline made a trip to the Andes, visiting the city of Potosi. 29 years later, they return to Potosi, with their three daughters, Noa, Yael and Naomi, and a super-16 camera. The experience gives birth to "Potosi, The Journey" (2007), a four-hour road movie, which is both a depiction in real time of the town and a journey of introspection for the filmmaker and his family. A photographer and painter from an early age, Havilio recognized that cinema was the ultimate visual medium even though it did not afford the immediate and direct look at the world that did painting and photography. Havilio invokes painters such as Vermeer, Van Gogh and Monet -- artists who described the the world around them through the filters of their individual eye and style. In this fashion, Havilio's work also walks the fine line between art and documentation. "I have tried to use the camera the way a writer uses a pen, or an artist a brush and palette," he says. "Fragments * Jerusalem" consists of some 140,000 feet of 16mm film shot by Havilio, 8mm films taken by his parents in the 1950's-60s, family photos, archival footage and photographs by early visitors to the Holy Land. The six-hour film, which is divided into two cycles and seven chapters, is a personal journal and family saga interwoven with the tumultuous history of Jerusalem. On his father's Sephardic side are the Havilios who arrived in Jerusalem a generation or two after the expulsion from Spain 500 years ago, and the Menachems who came at the turn of this century. On his mother's Ashkenazi side are the Paritzkys, and the Rosenthals who arrived from Vilna at the beginning of the 19th century and, according to some, were the first Ashkenazi family to buy property and settle in Jerusalem. The early periods of Jerusalem are seen in the film through the Havilio family eyes, while the stories of 19th-century Jerusalem come from the Rosenthal family. The beginning of the 20th century, World War I and the last years of the Ottoman rule are recalled through the life of grandmother Sarina Menachem. In the 1920's, as tensions rose between Arabs and Jews, the family of Golde Paritzky, Havilio's other grandmother, ran a dairy in the Old City's Moslem Quarter. The struggle for a state and the War of Independence in 1948 were experienced by Havilio's father, Shlomo, who joined the underground Haganah. Havilio hopes to complete three more chapters in a final cycle that will close the circle and bring the project up to present-day Jerusalem, relations between Jews and Arabs and, generationally, to his three daughters. Havilio has been teaching at the Jerusalem Sam Spiegel Film & Television School, at the Jerusalem Cinematheque and at the Aikido Institute of Jerusalem.

She was a member of Magnum Photos for over 32 years. Franck was the second wife of Henri Cartier-Bresson and co-founder and president of the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation. Franck studied art history at the University of Madrid and at the Ecole du Louvre in Paris. After struggling through her thesis (on French sculptor Henri Gaudier-Brzeska and the influence of cubism on sculpture), she said she realized she had no particular talent for writing, and turned to photography instead. In 1963, Franck's photography kick started following trips to the Far East, having taken pictures with her cousin’s Leica camera...

  • Vintage Silver Gelatin Signed Photograph Samuel Gottscho Garden Flowers Photo NY
    By Samuel Gottscho
    Located in Surfside, FL
    Vintage hand signed and stamp signed with the photographers stamp and numbered photo of Moccasin Flower. Samuel Herman Gottscho (February 8, 1875 - January 28, 1971) was an American architectural, landscape, and nature photographer. Samuel Gottscho was born in Brooklyn in New York City. He acquired his first camera in 1896 and took his first photograph at Coney Island. From 1896 to 1920 he photographed part-time, specializing in houses and gardens, as he particularly enjoyed nature, rural life, and landscapes. After attending several architectural photograph exhibitions, Gottscho decided to perfect and improve his own work and sought out several architects and landscape architects. After twenty-three years as a traveling lace and fabric salesman, at an age when most people would have given up their youthful dreams, Gottscho became a professional commercial photographer at the age of 50. His son-in-law William Schleisner joined Gottscho in his business in 1935. During this time his photographs appeared in and on the covers of American Architect and Architecture, Architectural Record. His portraits and architectural photography regularly appeared in articles in the New York Times. His photographs of private homes in the New York and Connecticut suburbs often appeared in home decoration magazines. From the early 1940s to the late 1960s, he was a regular contributor to the Times of illustrated articles on wildflowers. the meticulous, adoring pictures of New York City architecture and interiors that he took at his creative peak in the late 1920's and early 30's are finding a new audience, placing him more firmly in the ranks of the great architectural photographers of his day, like Ezra Stoller, Julius Shulman and Ken and Bill Hedrich. the Museum of the City of New York, which has one of the largest archives of Gottscho's work, showed about 150 of his best city scenes in an exhibition called "The Mythic City: Photographs of New York...
