Danielle turned me on to this guy, and I have to say Im so drawn to his films. This one, called The Birdman, made me tear up. I think its because Chris took the time to tell his story, a guy that probably hasnt had many folks sit with him and want to know about his life. It really made me want to start a project like this in our area (if only I had time for another project). So often we go through our days thinking about ourselves and all we have to do, but it would really mean so much to so many, if we just took the time to ask about their life.
Two of my favorite things all rolled into one beautiful online package. You know I love an online Mag. and one of my most favorite photographers is the ridiculously talented Jose Villa. We had the opportunity to have dinner with Jose in Nashville a few years ago, since then his popularity, has continued to grow, and it was pretty darn high back then. He has since had a book published, that Im dying to get my hands on. He is all film shooter, and his work is unmistakeable. Check out his amazing cover and feature(pg 64).
Picasso was eating in a cafe when a woman recognized him and asked him to sketch her a quick picture. Picasso said, “Sure!” and began sketching on a napkin. When he finished he handed it to the woman and said, “That’ll be $50,000.” The woman responded, “Why?! That took you 5 minutes!” and Picasso responded, “No, it took me 50 years.”
