Katie Burney SBU Pictures

This is a collection of five photographs that I have chosen that either made me wonder why it was taken, made me think of a happier time in my life, or just made me intrigued. 

Central avenue, Rio de Janeiro, RJ. Brazil, Ferrez, Marc, circa 1910, From the collection of: Instituto Moreira Salles
Marc Ferrez's photograph collections is mostly made up of glass negatives and prints. This picture comes from the Gilberto Ferrez collection. I liked this picture because I really enjoy the negatives.
[President Lincoln, United States Headquarters, Army of the Potomac, near Antietam], Alexander Gardner, 10/4/1862, From the collection of: The J. Paul Getty Museum
I enjoy historic pictures which is why I chose one that shows even though it was a staged picture, the surroundings and the posture of the men show that Lincoln being there did not stop anything.
Copacabana beach., Farkas, Thomaz, 1947, From the collection of: Instituto Moreira Salles
I just really like this picture because looking at the picture reminds me of summer since it is taken on a beach. Thomaz Farkas' influence at this time was the American movement of direct photography.
Itapuca Rock, Niterói., Ferrez, Marc, circa 1885, From the collection of: Instituto Moreira Salles
Another picture by Marc Ferrez, picked not on purposely. Even though this picture is showing Brazil it reminded me of Ireland when I was on that beach and it made me feel at home.
Just the two of us, Klaus Pichler, 2015, From the collection of: Delhi Photo Festival
Yes this picture is freaky but I mainly chose it because it made me wonder why it was taken. This is a picture in a set of series and Pichler went to owners of awesome costumes and photographed them.
