弗哥特 (Christian Vogt1946-   ),瑞士攝影家。前期作品以簡明生動、失去被攝物個性和富有結構感為特點,後期作品中還有一些超然的和冥想的效果,給人以夢幻般的感覺。他的系列作品以日記體的方式出現,帶有哲學的思考痕跡。“我的作品不僅要表現善或美,還要促使現衆去思想”。

Swiss photographer. He studied photography at the Gewerbeschule, Basle (1964-7). After being apprenticed to American photographer Will McBride in Munich, he opened his own studio in Basle in 1970. From 1972 he worked for various magazines, such as Du, Camera, Time-Life and Playboy. His photographs were created in clearly defined phases, such as his 'blue period' with tinted prints (1973-5) or the 'frame' series (1975) of photographs in which a rectangular frame photographed inside the field of view became the parameter for a picture within a picture (e.g. Without Title, 1975; Basle, Antikenmus.). His best-known series of erotic self-presentations of women, with a wooden crate as a prop (1979-81), explored a similar principle. His photographs often implied reflections on the photograph itself, on its subject, its selection and the relationship between what was shown and what was left out.



沃爾 (Jeff Wall, 1946-   ),加拿大攝影家,作為一種證明的攝影方式,在現代攝影中引起了很大的反響。“一個人可以感受到永遠有一架照相機在畫面之外:一個人正在工作。如果照相機的在場是可以感知的,那麽它所做的工作就必須被承認。”

Jeff Wall is best known for his large photographic transparencies back-lit in fluorescent light boxes. Responding to an era dominated by abstract art, he became interested in an alternative conceptual expression. He would reintroduce narrative and subject matter into the art world.

Wall was studying art history to enrich his art practice and in 1970 left Vancouver to pursue a Ph.D. in art history at the Courtauld Institute in London. His academic background is apparent in works that make obvious art historical allusions, but Wall says he is more concerned with staging tableaus of modern life for his camera than alluding to well-known paintings. Wall acknowledges the influence of the nineteenth-century French author Baudelaire, who called for a painting of modern life that would show the streets of Paris rather than the grand themes of history. In this spirit, Wall decided to appropriate back-lit advertisements, which he first saw in bus shelters, as an artistic medium for representing contemporary life.

Wall's photographs are the result of detailed planning and days, sometimes months, of rehearsals and shooting. He plays with the notion that implicit in every photograph is the sense of what happened before the moment depicted and what may happen after. He contends that artwork that has only one obvious meaning is either dull or propagandistic, and that good art must be beautiful to hold a viewer's attention.

曼恩(Sally Mann, 1951-   ),美國女攝影家,她主要以自己的三個孩子作為照片的主題。“對我而言,這些照片是孩子們給我的禮物:這些禮物來自一個像觸摸天使的翅膀一樣短暫的瞬間中。當我架起照相機時,我祈禱著天使的來臨,我們身處在一種恩賜的狀態中,我們期待著回報,這是個與‘時機的天使同在的恩賜的狀態。

庫恩 (Mona Kuhn, 1969),出生於巴西、生活在德國的女攝影家,以裸體主義的方式拍攝具有田園牧歌式的、 令人鬆弛的舞臺造型人體攝影作品。“我的靈感的確來源於繪畫,尤其是人體繪畫中的悠久歷史使其品位遠遠高於攝影,或者說我從中發現了更令人感興趣的文化成分。 "

Growing up in different countries opened my mind but it also made me a bit melancholic at times. I spent my childhood between he beaches of Brazil and the crowded streets of metropolitan Sao Paulo, with frequent visits to relatives in Germany. In 1996, I landed for the first time in a place unknown to most of us, a space I call home now - a secure corner from the complexities of contemporary life - where those close to me feel welcomed, trusted, and share long hours together. The thread of this combination is the very foundation of my fertile ground and it is the human in those I photograph that does not cease to exhaust my curiosity.

卡魯西 (Elinor Carucci, 1972-   ),出生在以色列、生活在紐約的女攝影家,用過照相機跟蹤自己和她的家人,以細膩而逼真的角度和愛的方式不斷靠近他們的生活。“我所完成的這一類攝影,實際上就是一種家庭的現狀,以非常自由、非常開放的方式對待他們的身體。

Elinor Carucci (born 1971, Israel) is an American photographer. She lives in New York City and is a member of the Faculty in Photography, School of Visual Arts in New York.

Her photographs take the viewer into the details of her surroundings, her family life and her home. Carucci takes the viewer into a very private part of her world. Marks on a body from bed sheets after waking, the imprint of a zipper on skin looks familiar and beautiful, a few dark hairs on an upper lip reveal a flaw in an otherwise perfect and sensual mouth. She photographs the stitches on a finger, and it becomes eerie and striking, mimicking the pattern of eyelashes from a very separate and quiet photo.

Since her gallery debut in 1997, Carucci's has had solo exhibitions in London, Frankfurt, Prague and Jerusalem. Her work has been extensively published and collected by numerous institutions and private collectors.

Carucci was chosen by Photo District News as one of its “Thirty under 30 Young Photographers to Watch” in 2000. She was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2002 and won the International Center of Photography’s Infinity Award for best young photographer in 2001.
