Emphasis on frozen beauty

Closing our gap to the world of photography, a section that we are going to develop at Bloom, with more books, we want to bring you the best photographers around the world, that on their own words and images can explain the art of their craft. This is one of our first issues, jumping directly from MAGNUM PHOTOS, the cream of photo agencies.
Dennis Stock is a photojournalist who works primarily in the format of multiple-picture essays. In addition to having held the first exclusive photo rights on James Dean, Stock has extensively documented the behind-the scenes milieu of Hollywood stars and jazz celebrities. He was born in New York in 1928 and currently resides in Menerbes, France. Stock has been a member of Magnum Photos since 1951. His photographs have appeared in other major publications, including Paris Match and Stern. He has worked as a writer, director, and producer for television and film, and has exhibited his work at the Art Institute of Chicago; International Center of Photography, New York; Musée d’Art Moderne, Paris; Schirm Kunsthalle, Frankfurt; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
As a photographer he explores his own perception of the world, wandering around and finding his own projects just by approaching the glimpse of an idea waiting for something to hit him. Then he follows a self-assigned journey bringing a concise reaction to what he sees and to human behaviour that he reflects with the eye of his cameras.
On MAGNUM IN MOTION we can follow all these tracks of self discovery. Is a great way to learn about the emotions of photography and the recreations of a world that goes beyond time and space. Hope you like it as we do. You can see it here.
