Cultural recommendation for the weekend

Photo exhibition “Alvin Langdon Coburn”

“At the age of eight they gave him a camera, at fifteen he already develops in his own laboratory and at 24 he was called by George Bernard Shaw “the best photographer in the world”. Praised by his colleagues, inventor of new points of view, he experimented before anyone else with double exposures and abandoned the millenarian pictorialism of the early twentieth century to let himself be carried away by the formal freedom of the artistic avant-garde. ”
