“Most of us are much more comfortable behind the lens,” said Fred R. Conrad, a New York Times staff photographer. “And to just sort of barge in on another photographer and tell him to pose … you feel kind of funny.” Mr. Conrad was on assignment to do a portrait of Joel Meyerowitz, the influential color photographer whose half-century career takes up a massive two-volume book, and an exhibition. Elaisha Stokes, a freelance videographer for The New York Times, shadowed Mr. Conrad taking Mr. Meyerowitz’s portrait in his studio on the Upper West Side to accompany an article by Randy Kennedy. Lens also recently published a post by Mr. Meyerowitz on his approach to color and black-and-white photography.
Gian Luigi Carminati is a passionate and poetic 76 years old man who spent his entire life repairing cameras.
In his small workshop in Milan he takes care of old cameras with just a set of screwdrivers and a lot of patience.
We spotted his workshop randomly, we just passed by his shop and we got curious since we saw so many old cameras on display.
Six months ago I moved to New York City. Since then, I’ve lived out the life that I’ve always dreamed. Whether I was roof-topping, photographing, skateboarding, or just hanging with friends, I had my camera by my side ready to film it all. This film is the story of my first couple months in the greatest city on earth. I’ve never put more work into one project, so I hope you all enjoy it 🙂
