Late Chicago photographers acclaimed photos at centre of Canadian court battle

first_imgIn a statement of claim filed with the court, Maier’s estate says Goldstein started producing unauthorized prints from the Maier negatives in 2010 and sold them for well over $1,000 each, and often much higher. The claim also says Goldstein improperly used Maier images in books and public exhibitions. Advertisement Maier did not leave a will and no legal heirs have been identified, meaning the public administrator for Cook County, Ill., has power to protect her estate’s assets and enforce copyright interests. Advertisement She has since won wide admiration for her deftly composed vignettes of life in New York and Chicago, which capture strolling women in furs, carefree children and white-hatted sailors. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment The statement says Bulger, who has mounted Maier exhibitions at his gallery, has profited from the negatives without the estate’s consent. The bulk of Maier’s work is now controlled by John Maloof, who bought a box of her negatives in the hope of finding some useful images for a book project on a Chicago neighbourhood. He eventually posted some of the pictures online, generating intense interest and sparking a career archiving and promoting Maier’s work. Another collector, Jeffrey Goldstein, acquired much of Maier’s remaining archive. Three years ago he sold some 17,000 black-and-white negatives and slides to Stephen Bulger, who runs a gallery on Toronto’s Queen Street West. Twitter OTTAWA — The estate of a Chicago photographer whose vivid street scenes have won her posthumous plaudits is asking a Canadian court to prohibit a Toronto gallery from showing or selling her work. The administrator is asking the Federal Court of Canada to prevent Bulger from reproducing, selling or showing the photographer’s work. Login/Register With: The statement alleges Goldstein sold the negatives to Bulger because the buyer was located “outside the United States,” and that the parties in the transaction believed the move would make it more difficult for the estate to enforce copyright beyond “the reach of U.S. courts.” Maloof reached a confidential agreement last year with the public administrator concerning his trove of Maier images.By: Jim Bronskill The estate wants the court to issue temporary and permanent injunctions prohibiting the gallery from displaying or selling the images. It is also seeking an award of damages. This undated photograph provided on Jan. 6, 2011 by Maloof Colection Ltd. shows an undated and untitled self portrait of Vivian Maier.

Delhi to vote for full statehood in this election says Atishi

first_imgNEW DELHI: People this time will vote for Delhi’s full statehood as not having the status is directly linked with concrete issues such as unemployment, women’s safety and lack of opportunities in higher education, AAP leader Atishi has said. Atishi is one of the seven candidates fielded by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for the Lok Sabha elections in Delhi. The AAP is contesting the elections with the slogan ‘Poorna Rajya Banao Jhadu ka Button Dabao’, telling people that Delhi will get full statehood if they vote for the party. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderThe Aam Aadmi Party’s Lok Sabha candidate for the East Delhi constituency said the party is “talking of concrete issues of lack of safety and security, cleanliness and employment that is linked to Delhi not having full statehood”. “People in Delhi this election are going to vote on these factors,” Atishi said. Noting that there is “no narrative” this election and people would vote based on local issues affecting them, she said, “Like in 2014, there was ‘Abki Baar Modi Sarkar’, in 2015, there was narrative to make Kejriwal as the chief minister but if you see in this election there is no narrative across the nation either in favour of anyone or against anyone”. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsShe added that a lot of people who voted for the BJP in 2014 were “not natural BJP voters” but the ones hoping for change in favour of development. “When they voted for the BJP (in 2014), they thought it is on the agenda of development. They were also the elections that had mega narratives,” she said. “I think people would say we have seen consequences of voting for Modi, nothing changed in our lives. Our children still don’t have education, they don’t have jobs, women are still not safe. Now they will vote based on seeing the work that we (AAP) have done after coming to power,” the 37-year-old Oxford graduate said. On reforms in government school education in Delhi, Atishi said when the AAP came to power, there were multiple gaps that had to be dealt with. “One was that of the basic infrastructure, whatever infrastructure was there was poorly maintained. There were some schools in east Delhi having over 150 students in one class and with such infrastructure deficiency there is no way you can provide high quality education,” she said. “I think all this shortage of infrastructure gave this message to the children that you are second class citizens and you don’t matter in this world and you are not going to make it anywhere,” Atishi said. The second major challenge was “lack of accountability” which, she claimed, is a “hallmark of a government system”. “I think changing that mindset was the biggest challenge. Everyone in this system used to believe that this system couldn’t work,” she said. “Teachers are same, schools are same, children are same but the fact that you have a government in power that is willing to improve, an intent to improve and that changed things,” she said. But she noted that Delhi’s higher education is still facing a crisis. “You have 2.5 lakh students passing out of class 12 every year in Delhi and that number is increasing. There are only one lakh seats in higher educational institutes for which children from across the country are seeking admission. So there is definitely a crisis,” she said.last_img read more

Housing market affordable in all 7 big cities except Mumbai

first_imgNew Delhi: Stable prices and lower interest rates on home loans have made housing market affordable in all major cities of the country except Mumbai, according to property consultant JLL India.Hyderabad was the most affordable housing market in 2018, followed by Kolkata and Pune, the consultant said in its annual Home Purchase Affordability Index (JLL HPAI) launched on Wednesday. The index analyses affordability across key seven cities (Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Bengaluru, Chennai, Pune, Hyderabad and Kolkata) for 2011 to 2018 after factoring in home loan interest rates, average household income and price of a 1,000 sq ft apartment. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThe index signifies whether a household earning an average annual income (at an overall city level) is eligible for a housing loan to buy a 1,000 sq ft residential property in the city at the prevailing market price and home loan interest rate. “It is interesting to note that only Hyderabad out of the seven cities covered as a part of our study was affordable in 2013 whereas the situation flipped positively by 2018. In 2018, all the cities except Mumbai crossed the affordability threshold as per JLL HPAI,” the consultant said. JLL India’s CEO & Country Head Ramesh Nair said the company aims to share a holistic perspective which could act as a feeder into strategic decision making for developers and policy makers. “Favourable home loan rates backed by stable price have resulted in improved affordability across cities from 2014,” Nair added. JLL India’s Chief Economist and Head of Research Samanthak Das said the affordability levels would continue to improve over the next three years for all seven cities.last_img read more
