Erwin Blumenfeld. Windblown, New York, c. 1949. Vintage gelatin silver print, 13 7/8 x 11”.
“Erwin Blumenfeld’s passion for technical audacity is perfectly exemplified in [this] Kodachrome shot… it was made in violation of Eastman’s exact and careful directions. Color-temperature theories were completely ignored. Yet Alexey Brodovitch, art director of Harper’s Bazaar, once said that he considered Blumenfeld the master of color, the one photographer who dared freely experiment in a new way.” (by Will Schofield)
