In May 2012 I had the honor and privilege of taking the “Jay Maisel Workshop” in NY City at his home, the 35,000 square foot Germania Bank building in the Bowery. The workshop cost $5,000 for 5-days inclusive of Jay taking us to his favorite NY restaurants for lunch and dinner. To describe the workshop would take far longer than I have today at this sitting, working to get out a quick post. A few years ago, Jay stopped giving his workshop and ultimately moved to Brooklyn.
However, last night was the opening of a small show representing a 60 year retrospective of Jay’s work. It was great to see Jay and a few other luminaries in the photography world.
If you read my blog, you know that I’ve been talking about personal documentary projects lately. Here are my personal documentary photos from last night. Also at the opening where photographers Gerd Ludwig and Douglas Kirkland with his wife Françoise.
