This is the first ever retrospective of Sam's calendar assignments spanning 30 years of work. The show also includes two rare vintage black and white prints - printed, retouched and signed by Sam and a selection of contemporary inkjet prints of iconic images from the sixties. Plus the first showing in Europe of the only limited editions (a set of four images in an edition of 10 each) ever printed by Sam - produced just before his death last November.

Calendar Retrospective

Sunday, July 11th, 2010

The show opened in Paris on Thursday, in the small gallery behind the popular Ofr bookstore in Paris. Ofr is a visual hot-spot for the fashion and photographic crowd. A place to secure anything from the current Japanese Vogue to vintage copies of Twen and the latest photo and fashion books.

The Paris show offers an opportunity, for the first time ever, to view the evolution of Sam's calendar work over three decades from 1971.

Ofr gallery is also presenting a small collection of Sam's prints; rare original signed silver vintages from the sixties (printed and retouched by Sam), contemporary inkjet prints of sixties images and a set of the only limited edition colour work ever printed by Sam.

The show - originally intended to run until August 25th - has been extended to September 5th. Tell your friends and colleagues!

Audrey Hepburn inspiration

Monday, May 24th, 2010

This week, seeing a shot of Audrey Hepburn by Bob Willoughby on Wayne Ford's blog, reminded me of Sam's images inspired by vintage car interiors and a model who looked a little like Hepburn.

Far from a studio lot in Hollywood, these images, some of which appeared in Cowboy Kate (as one of the 'other stories' - 'Sunday'), were shot in a field on the outskirts of Johannesburg. The car was a 1936 Bentley which Sam not only restored and rallied in Africa but also used as everyday transport.

The final image in this series was a set in Sam's 60's studio in a light industrial building in downtown Johannesburg. One of the car interior shots features as a print on the wall.

The images in this post were scanned from vintage silver prints. Sam's archive is yielding fascinating discoveries which have remained hidden for decades, including experimental work that has never been exhibited or published. Future posts will feature this work as it is catalogued.

Polaroid

Monday, December 29th, 2008

Today's New York Times carries a story about the demise of Polaroid accompanied by a slide show from the book 'Found Polaroids'.

The article mentions a project from the early seventies when Polaroid launched the SX-70 and gave cameras plus a generous stock of film to a group of photographers and published the resulting images in a limited edition boxed set. Particularly striking shots were submitted by Christian Vogt, Pete Turner and Helmut Newton.

My contribution to the project - and the only in-camera montage in the series - is shown below.

This boxed set was not the only promotional project organised by polaroid. There was also a calendar called 'Four Season' in 1976 which features one of my images for the month of May.

The limited edition boxed set of twelve prints for the SX-70 called '12 Instant Images - The SX-70 Experience' was repeated for another Polaroid product, '12 Instant Images - Type 105 Positive/Negative film'. Collectors should keep an eye out for it especially for the excellent contributions by Ansel Adams, Sarah Moon and Jeanloup Sieff. Each boxed set was limited to a production run of 1,000 and in both cases the first 50 sets were signed by all the photographers.
