The Getty is opening Recent History: Photographs by Luc Delahaye at the same time; both exhibitions will run from July 31 to November 25. Delahaye, a Frenchman and former Magnum member, is well known for his photojournalistic work in Lebanon, Afghanistan, Rwanda, Chechnya, and Bosnia -- but also for dismissing photojournalism as "neither photography or journalism," and for renouncing it in favor of "fine-art" photography. The 10 images in the Getty show are the large-scale, infinitely detailed, politically potent tableaux Delahaye is now known for. Now, huge detailed prints are hardly ground-breaking, in the museum world especially, but this quote from Delahaye in a well-written article on artnet.com gives me faith that his work, or at least the thinking behind it, transcends the trendiness of big prints: "The press is for me just a means of photographing, for material, not for telling the truth. In magazines, the images are vulgar, reality is reduced to a symbolic or simplistic function...one of the reasons for the photographs' large size is to make them incompatible with the economy of the press."
