Figuring History in Monochrome


Last night I attended the Seattle Art Museum premier of Figuring History, a curated collection for Black History Month with the works of Robert Colescott, Kerry James Marshall, and Mickalene Thomas. And, took a break from bike photography to take these photos with Leica’s Type 246, a camera that commits to technically and creatively seeing the world in tones, shadows, textures, and luminance.

I’ll leave the art criticism to the experts, but what I noticed is SAM seems to have hit its curating stride with a contemporary show that brings together three generations of contemporary American artists for the first time. The artists’ work challenges a Western painting tradition that under represents people of color, offering a bold perspectives on Black culture and representation.
The attendees of the show were in as much awe of the collection as I was. Shooting them in black and white focused on the experience in person and I strongly encourage you to see the show for yourself.
In full color.

My favorite is the three women that was created for the show. It borrows the compositional format of a Manet, starts with a photograph, and then fills a wall with textiles, upholstery coverings, rhinestones, and wood paneling.
Figuring History runs now through May 15th and I would not miss the histories of people of color told on their own terms; especially, in these times.

1977年3月20日撮影 ツーリング車のタイムトライアル

オーナーにとって良い自転車とは何か? 自転車店として、どうすれば、より良い自転車をお客さんに提供できるか?
それを追求するための手段の一つとして、サイクルストア・ヒロセでは、いわゆる走行会を開店当初から断続的に続けています。

これは1977年の走行会を記録した8ミリ映像。走行会の名称は「V.C.H.K.(ベロ・クラブ・ヒロセ・小平)」。各自が自分と自分の自転車の能力を知るためのタイムトライアル走行です。

未舗装路が2/3を占める厳しいコースを、決まったレギュレーションのツーリング車で走破する40年前のタイムトライアル映像はかなり貴重なものでは無いでしょうか。
レギュレーションは、WOタイヤで、電装品、キャリア、バッグ(バッグの種類はなんでも良い)付きの自転車で、雨具と携帯工具を装備。変速機は前2×後5の10段が多かったそうです。

始めたきっかけや、走行会に込められた狙いや意味等については、下記のビデオに収録した廣瀬さんのインタビューをご覧下さい。
