The Squirrel King

 

Meet Ricky Powell; self-styled “Lazy Hustler”, street photographer and West Village legend.

I first discovered Ricky Powell through the awesome “Everybody Street” film which illuminates the lives and work of New York’s iconic street photographers and fell in love with his style. So I was stoked when I came across The Squirrel King.

This film (Directed by Dimitri Ellerington) was a Finalist of Tropfest Australia 22 2013 and it’s not hard to see why. You can’t help but like the squirrel king.

RIP Leonard Nimoy

 

Terribly sad news about Leonard Nimoy. I had no idea he was an accomplished photographer. I recommend watching the whole interview (but I’m biased because I love Star Trek and Leonard Nimoy) but if you just want the photography part then skip forward to 11:21 but you are a fool if you do.

A Photography lesson with William Klein

 

The life of a photographer, even of a great photographer as they say, two seconds… more or less.

William Klein

The above quote is from the start of the video and is William Klein discussing the length of a photographers photographic life through their photos. The idea is that if you take all of the great photos that a photographer takes they will be equal to one or two seconds, those one or two seconds are the life of a photographer.

William Klein shares some of his contact sheets and talks about the photos and photography.
