Where I Was
A personal collection of enigmatic black and white images taken by photojournalist Erich Hartmann over the course of his illustrious career
Where I Was, by Erich Hartmann, contains the personal black-and-white pictures of a busy working photojournalist travelling all the time, only to be home briefly in between.
Although much of his assigned work was in color, Hartmann was never without a camera loaded with black-and-white film and a small box of extra rolls, which he used to capture what intrigued and fascinated him.
With images from Maine to Austria and Italy to Santa Monica, Hartmann’s signature style is enigmatic, unfinished and ambiguous. It is life in progress.
