Cass Bird has a whole career of documenting and portraying femininities, so it makes sense that she shot this amazing group portrait of the leaders of the Women’s March on Washington for Vogue in a Bronx warehouse studio. It’s the intensity of this shot that grabs us, the engagement of each and every subject as they look poised to burst out of the frame like sprinters leaping out of the starting gate. But the shot also telegraphs the electricity of the group, ready to act together for a common purpose– while notably the story behind the photo shoot tells that this was only the second time the contingent had all met each other. Iconic.

Barbara Morgan’s dance photos always amaze us with her technicality + aliveness. She built a special space and lighting and brought the dancers to her.
“I don’t have a favourite image. What I love is that things change, accidents happen, the creative process keeps evolving. I love to have fun. I like to do photos with a wink at the subject and not be deadly serious. I like fantasy. We need to dream.”
Is listening to music from movies about photography sort of like reading from writing about architecture? Anyway, we love Herbie Hancock’s swinging sixties soundtrack to Antonioni’s Blow Up.
