TIM MANTOANI

Una fotografia non nasce mai icona: lo diventa. Se è vero che a tutti può accadere di fare una buona fotografia non è altrettanto facile che “quello” scatto fuoriesca dalla dimensione immagine per proiettare in eterno la sua luce per diventare assai più famosa dell’autore, né più né meno come un figlio che supera le gesta del padre. Ci sono fotografie che vivono una vita propria. Le abbiamo viste molte volte, sulle riviste, sui giornali specializzati sui libri fotografici, sulle copertine di dischi, per questo alcune fotografie ci sono familiari al punto da ritenerle parti integranti della nostra formazione fotografica. Sono le fotografie “iconiche”, quelle cioè che hanno saputo assorbire lo spirito del tempo con un ritratto, un evento o chissà ancora cos’altro e restituirlo intatto alle generazioni future. Italo Calvino in “Perché leggere i Classici” definiva, appunto, un classico, un libro che si staglia sul rumore di fondo della modernità, una voce che non ha ancora esaurito il suo racconto. L’assunto di Calvino può di diritto essere trasferito alla fotografia, sicché le foto che vediamo sono dei classici che travalicano il tempo e la cui bellezza, mai disgiunta dal racconto di un’epoca, supera ogni datazione chiamando noi e il nostro tempo a confrontarci con quel frammento di Storia, con quel “segno” stabilitosi saldamente nell’Olimpo delle Immagini. Come si è detto fin dal principio, una fotografia non nasce con l’intenzione di diventare un’icona – esattamente come un libro non nasce con il desiderio di farsi capolavoro –, lo diventa. E quando lo diventa dilaga imprimendosi per sempre nel nostro immaginario collettivo. Altro non desideriamo sapere. Osservando una fotografia che ci restituisce un momento di storia della società, della cronaca, del costume, non vediamo solo un’immagine, vediamo piuttosto noi stessi al cospetto della “nostra” storia, con il nostro vissuto e quella fotografia diventa un medium in grado di legare il passato con il presente. C’è di più: una fotografia “iconica” ha il potere non solo di vivificare il passato ma di stabilire l’importanza forse allora sfuggita – nel caso in cui non fossimo stati testimoni – oppure attestarsi come documento storico con una sua valenza. In ogni caso queste fotografie innescano con chi le ha scattate una specie di competizione: molto spesso non conosciamo né il nome né, tantomeno, il volto di chi le ha scattate. A “risarcire” gli autori di quanto le loro stesse foto hanno sottratto, ci ha pensato il fotografo californiano Tim Mantoani. In “Behind Photographs” (un progetto iniziato nel 2006) Mantoani ha ritratto circa centocinquanta fotografi mentre sorreggono la loro foto più famosa. Una restituzione o, almeno, una specie di tregua tra il fotografo e l’immagine che ha corso più veloce di lui e avrà senz’altro una vita più longeva. A ben guardare ogni cosa sopravvive all’uomo.

TIM MANTOANI

A photograph is never an icon: it becomes. If it is true that everyone can make a good photograph it is not so easy that "that" click comes out of the image dimension to project its light forever to become much more famous than the author, neither more nor less like a son who he overcomes his father's deeds. There are photographs that live a life of their own.
We have seen them many times, in magazines, in specialized newspapers, in photo books, on record covers, for this reason some photographs are familiar to us so much as to consider them integral parts of our photographic formation. These are the "iconic" photographs, those that have been able to absorb the spirit of the time with a portrait, an event or who knows what else and return it intact to future generations.
Italo Calvino in "Why reading the Classics" defined, in fact, a classic, a book that stands out on the background noise of modernity, a voice that has not yet exhausted his story. Calvino's assumption can by right be transferred to photography, so that the photos we see are classics that go beyond time and whose beauty, never separated from the story of an era, overcomes any dating by calling us and our time to compare with that fragment of History, with that "sign" firmly established in the Olympus of Images.
As we said from the beginning, a photograph is not born with the intention of becoming an icon - just like a book is not born with the desire to become a masterpiece - it becomes. And when it becomes rampant, forever imprisoning itself in our collective imagination. We do not want to know anything else. Observing a photograph that gives us back a moment in the history of society, the news, the costume, we do not just see an image, rather we see ourselves in the presence of "our" story, with our experience and that photography becomes a medium capable to link the past with the present.
There is more: an "iconic" photograph has the power not only to vivify the past but to establish the importance perhaps then escaped - in case we were not witnesses - or attest as a historical document with its own value. In any case, these photographs trigger those who have taken a kind of competition: very often we do not know the name nor, even less, the face of those who took them.
To "compensate" the authors of what their own photos have stolen, the Californian photographer Tim Mantoani thought. In "Behind Photographs" (a project started in 2006) Mantoani has portrayed about one hundred and fifty photographers while supporting their most famous photo. A return or, at least, a kind of truce between the photographer and the image that ran faster than him and will certainly have a longer life. To look at carefully, everything that survives man.

Film's not Dead

Happy birthday to the 'father of fashion photography', Martin Munkacsi who was born on this day in 1896!

Munkacsi made history and changed the world of photojournalism forever when he took the first spontaneous fashion photograph for Harper’s Bazaar on Long Island beach, of model Lucile Brokaw running.

This is what made Munkácsi stand out above other photographers, at the time, was his ability to capture action in a way no one else had attempted.

During the 1920/30's, fashion was only photographed in studios; entirely staged, where models were posed like mannequins. After taking that groundbreaking photo, Harper’s Bazaar editor Carmel Snow offered Munkácsi a job, allowing him to move to New York and escape the ever growing danger in Germany.

"Never pose your subjects. Let them move about naturally... All great photographs today are snapshots. (1935)"
