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.

When HCB talks about photography photographers listen and listen you should to HCBs wise words.

This interview with Henri Cartier-Bresson has been taken from the 1958 Famous Photographers Tell How LP.

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.
