COURTESY ARCHIVES OLGA RUIZ-PICASSO AND GAGOSIAN GALLERY Picasso with Bob (the Great Pyrenees), 1932 For Picasso, photography was far more than a mere hobby. He used his camera in countless different ways: as an aide- mémoire to help him record the progress of his work, the various women in his life, his surroundings and, not least, himself, and to experiment in new, unthought-of ways. He also made home movies and worked with filmmakers to capture his creative process in motion. Picasso was both inspired and energized by the photographers with whom he worked. The resulting body of photographs and films, filled with fact, invention and myth, is vital to our understanding of Picasso's achievements across his artistic output. By John Richardson PICASSO &THE CAMERA "Picasso & the Camera," curated by John Richardson, is on view in New York at Gagosian 21st Street through January 3.
