Val Telburg

Mr. Telburg used a lot of double exposures and depth of vision to create eerie dreamlike photos. I think he would have loved photoshop and their layers.

Val Telberg (born in Moscow, Russia on February 14, 1910) was a Russian painter. He lived in China during his youth. He studied painting at the Art Student’s League, New York, in 1942, where he was exposed to the surrealism movement and experimental film-making. To support his painting, Telberg traveled from Florida to Massachusetts, printing photographs of nightclub patrons and working at photographic concession stands where people posed with cutouts of celebrities. In 1945, he returned to New York and produced narrative, surrealist photographs using sandwiched, bleached or burned negatives and double exposure within the camera. His later work evolved to large scale, scroll-like multiple images.

Grete Stern

Grete Stern was an emigre from Nazi Germany who moved to England and finally to Argentina. The images in her work grow into new images. I find her work exciting and very clever. Although much of her work had a commercial/utilitarian purpose, illustrating dreams of readers of a woman’s magazine, the images stand on their own without explanation.
