The Photography of Jeanloup Sieff: An Eternal Dandy

The French photographer Jeanloup Sieff (1933-2000) is a legend in fashion photography and one of the most prominent photographers of his generation. The Moderna Museet in Stockholm is presenting the first Nordic solo exhibition of Jeanloup Sieff’s work, which features a selection from Sieff’s photographic oeuvre.

Sieff began photography in the early 1950s as a contemporary of Helmut Newton and David Bailey, belonging to the generation succeeding Irving Penn. In the course of a long career, his photography spanned from fashion, advertising and portraits to reportage and landscapes. His images are often sensual and elegant, and in the 1960s he was much in demand as a fashion photographer, especially in New York City, where he lived for many years. Sieff was awarded several prizes, including the Prize Niepce, the Chevalier des Arts et Lettres in Paris in 1981 and the Grand Prix National de la Photographie in 1992.

Jeanloup Sieff had a huge popular appeal in France, the Unites States and elsewhere. His black-and-white photographs, always elegant and exquisitely printed, became his trademark style. Dancers and nudes were two recurring themes in his works. A trendy man about town all his life, early risers in Paris grew accustomed to seeing the long-haired, debonaire man driving a stylish vintage English sports car for his early morning breakfast in the St Germain district of Paris.

Glorious Holiday Buffoonery: Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo

Glorious Holiday Buffoonery: Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo has just pranced into New York City for its holiday show, the superb all-male ballet troupe that specializes in twists on the classics, instilled with equal measures of glorious goofiness and technical aptitude.  They are presenting a program of repertory works, which includes the  standout performance of The Dying Swan from Swan Lake.   Every tragic bourrée leaves behind a trail of white feathers; in a last-ditch effort to ward off the inevitable, the ancient ballerina grabs handfuls and tries, unsuccessfully, to reapply them to her body. Although this piece has been performed for years, you just never want that swan to die.

Impoverished Places: An Inspiration to Comfort and Transform Us

Impoverished Places: An Inspiration to Comfort and Transform Us

Impoverished Places is a dramatic, uplifting five-minute short film produced by the Canadian filmmaker Karen Pascal, which provides a sensitive, poetically touching evocation of  our needs for human connections.  In the film, two dancers, one of whom has lived with Parkinson’s Disease for thirty years, enact a dramatic portrayal of the relationship between the finite and the infinite, while all the while reaching into their “impoverished places” to comfort and transform us.

The film stands as a bold reminder that people are capable of doing great things that can in turn inspire greatness in others.  It quietly makes a strong statement supporting our social aspirations for peace and a soothing sense of communion that is stronger and deeper than the need to win in the competition of life.  More specifically, it evokes an emphasis upon wishes for both belonging and human connection.  This, in turn, is interpenetrated with a hope for the kind of society in which people with developmental disabilities and the friends who assist them can work together in ways that enable each person to grow to his or her full potential.

The Tropicana’s “Folies Bergere” Gives its Final High-Kicking Can-Can

The Tropicana’s “Folies Bergere” Gives its Final High-Kicking Can-Can

The final feathers have fallen on the Tropicana Hotel and Casino’s Folies Bergere in Las Vegas. At the final performance of the Folies Bergere on Saturday night, the Parisian topless revue dancers gave their last high-kicking can-cans. The large audience came to say its goodbye in style, with original cast members of the show and recent hires cheering wildly from the audience for each little bit of choreography by their younger counterparts.

The curtain came down lavishly on the Tropicana showgirl revue, which is said to be the longest-running showgirl review in America. The Tropicana Folies Bergere show was coming close to its 50th Anniversary on Christmas Day when it suddenly got its pink slip two months ago. Tropicana executives had decided not to reinvest in a new edition of the casino-owned revue, but they did not let their jewel go without one last chance to sparkle. The “Folies” died of slow starvation over the years, as management and ownership changes stalled major reinvestment in the production that in time had become more and more dated in the Cirque du Soleil era of Las Vegas.
