Exhibition – More than just a snapshot – Len Speier
Len Speier More than just a snapshot
18 February – 3 March 2017
Len Speier was a native New Yorker. He was born in 1927 and died a few days ago, on Sunday February 6, 2017. He had been taking photographs since the age of thirteen. He was the living example of his motto: “Never, never, never, never, never, never give up!”, an excerpt from a famous speech that Winston Churchill gave to students at Harrow School when he was prime minister.
Len was shooting in the streets of New York for most of his life and at his 90s he still had the vigor of a young man. In this exhibition there are photographs that take us decates back to a world unknown to many. What he said about his art is the following:
«Photography is the art of exclusion. The photographer has the power to create, in her or his camera, what is wanted to be exhibited.
It is a heady power. It is the serendipitous confluence of the eye, brain, sensitivity and the action of the finger on the shutter release.
It has been my goal.»
