Her best-known book, Photographie et sociĂ©té (1974), is about the uses and abuses of the photographic medium in the age of technological reproduction. At university she became an active member of a student socialist group and was determined to use photography as an integral part of her socialist practice. One of her first stories, shot on May 1, 1932, "shows a recent march of anti-fascist students" who had been "regularly attacked by Nazi groups." The photos show Walter Benjamin, a good friend of Freund, and Bertolt Brecht. b)Brassaï (pseudonym of Gyula HalĂĄsz; 9 September 1899 – 8 July 1984) was a Hungarian–French  photographer, sculptor, writer, and filmmaker who rose to international fame in France in the 20th century. He was one of the numerous Hungarian artists who flourished in Paris beginning between the World wars. c) Kate Barry (8 April 1967 – 11 December 2013) was a British fashion photographer, who worked for Vogue  and The Sunday Times Magazine. Kate died as a result of a fall from her fourth floor apartment in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, in what was assumed to be a suicide. Barry was the daughter of Franco-British actress and singer Jane Birkin and the composer John Barry. She moved from Britain to France as a child, and was raised by her mother and her partner Serge Gainsbourg. #cimiteri_monumentali_ #entropy_to_epitaphs #project_necropolis #gallery_of_dark_arts #cemetery_shots #click_gravestone #cemeterylovers #graveyard_life #gravestone #cemeteryart #historyofart #parisjetaime #visitparis #igersparis #igersfrance #doucefrance #travelgram #paris đŸ—Œ #francia #france đŸ‡«đŸ‡· #vivreparis #topparisphoto #thisisparis #igparisiloveyou #secretsdeparis #unlimitedparis #paris_vacations #paris_focus_on

PARIS, 1857. CimetiĂšre de Montparnasse: Yves Robert and his wife DaniĂšle Delorme, "un homme de joye et sa lĂ©lĂ©e". Ph Daniele Cenci, 18/08/2018. PASSEGGIATE INTERNAZIONALI 11. Yves Robert (19 June 1920 – 10 May 2002) was a French actor, screenwriter, director, and producer. Yves Robert's directorial efforts included several successful comedies for which he had written the screenplay. His 1962 film "La Guerre des boutons" won France's Prix Jean Vigo. His 1972 film "Le grand blond avec une chaussure noire" won the Silver Bear at the 23rd Berlin International Film Festival in 1973. In 1976, "Un Ă©lĂ©phant ça trompe Ă©normĂ©ment", starring his wife, earned him international acclaim. Robert's 1973 devastating comedy "Salut l'artiste" is considered by many performers to be the ultimate film about the humiliations of the actor's life. In 1977, he directed the comedy "Nous irons tous au paradis". In 1990, Robert directed two dramatic films, My Mother's Castle (Le chĂąteau de ma mĂšre) and My Father's Glory (La Gloire de mon PĂšre). He directed more than twenty feature-length motion pictures, wrote an equal number of scripts, and acted in more than seventy-five films. Although his last major role was perhaps in 1980, A Bad Son by Claude Sautet, as the working-class father of a drug-dealer, he continued acting past 1997. Robert played opposite DaniĂšle Delorme in the 1951 play Colombe (Dove) by Jean Anouilh. They married in 1956, and jointly formed the film production company La GuĂ©ville in 1961. He died in Paris from a cerebral hemorrhage. #cimiteri_monumentali_ #yvesrobert #guerredesboutons #entropy_to_epitaphs #project_necropolis #gallery_of_dark_arts #cemetery_shots #click_gravestone #cemeterylovers #graveyard_life #gravestone #cemeteryart #historyofart #parisjetaime #visitparis #igersparis #igersfrance #doucefrance #travelgram #paris đŸ—Œ #francia #france đŸ‡«đŸ‡· #vivreparis #topparisphoto #thisisparis #igparisiloveyou #secretsdeparis #unlimitedparis #paris_vacations #paris_focus_on

For inquiring minds... * Reasons for fencing many years ago were to define the cemetery boundaries or family plots. Also, they were installed to protect gravestones from animals such as wandering cattle. Depending on the cemetery's beginnings, an original barbed wire fence might be replaced by a wooden picket fence or by more ornate cast iron fence. * You can still find cast iron fences in some historic cemeteries. In the 1880s, cast iron fencing was available in a variety of designs, motifs and shapes. Families or cemetery associations created unique designs from mass produced products by picking and choosing different gates, newel posts, picket tops and line posts from a fence catalog. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #rvlife #nomadlife #texas #fortleatonstatehistoricsite #historicalsite #cemetery #trivia #whydidtheydothat #texashistory #sothatswhy #grave #gravestone #deadpeople #burythedead #RIP #travelblogger #travel #travelusa #exploremore #inquiringminds #graveyard

Ph Daniele Cenci, 18/08/2018. PASSEGGIATE INTERNAZIONALI 11. a) Avocat, dĂ©putĂ©, membre du gouvernement provisoire de 1848 et ministre de la Justice dans le gouvernement de DĂ©fense nationale de 1870, il est surtout connu pour avoir rĂ©ussi Ă  donner la citoyennetĂ© française aux juifs d’AlgĂ©rie. Franc-maçon, il se fit connaĂźtre pour son universalisme et sa dĂ©fense de la fraternitĂ©. Il fut en outre l’un des crĂ©ateurs de l’Alliance israĂ©lite universelle dont il exerça la prĂ©sidence. b) Economiste et philosophe, le compagnonnage l’amena Ă  parcourir la France. En 1840, il publia Qu’est-ce-que la propriĂ©té ? Son Avertissement aux propriĂ©taires lui valut en 1842 d’ĂȘtre traduit aux Assises. Elu dĂ©putĂ© en 1848, Proudhon, qui appelait de ses voeux une « rĂ©volution Ă©conomique et sociale qui poclamĂąt le drapeau rouge Ă©tendard fĂ©dĂ©ral du genre humain », voulait cependant concilier prolĂ©tariat et bourgeoisie, ce qui le fit qualifier de « petit bourgeois » par Marx. Il est connu pour sa formule: la PropriĂ©tĂ©, c’est le vol. ("La proprietĂ  privata Ăš un furto"). c) Sociologue français. Dans la lignĂ©e du positivisme de Comte, il chercha Ă  faire de l’étude des faits sociaux une discipline ayant un objet et une mĂ©thode, qu’il dĂ©veloppa dans son Ă©tude du Suicide. En cela, Durkheim peut ĂȘtre vĂ©ritablement considĂ©rĂ© comme le crĂ©ateur de la sociologie moderne. d) Artiste genialissime et totalement inclassable ! C’est dit !

This memorial to Sir Anthony Benn (no, not THAT Anthony Benn â˜ș) is in a church at Kingston upon Thames. He's pretty much in the children's play area of the church cafe which is probably not what he had in mind when he died back in 1618 💀#tombs #kingstonuponthames #elizabethan #gravestone #churchtomb #anthonybenn #prayingstatue #praying #paintedeffigy
