This is a film that I've been wanting to see since Vivian Maier's collection of work was first discovered. It's film is premiering at DOC NYC on November 17 and I'm hoping it'll make it's way out to the west coast shortly after since I don't think I'll be in New York this year. If you haven't heard of Vivian Maier then I strongly encourage you to watch the trailer.
Photographer Spotlight - 09.03.2013
Brian Lima is a good friend of mine and one of the photographers whose work first inspired me to really start pursuing photography. I met Brian sometime around 2003 in San Diego when he was photographing my band, he's now based out of Rhode Island. He has a great repertoire of work ranging from amazing concert photography to beautiful landscape images of New Zealand and incredible shots of the Dalai Lama during a once in a lifetime opportunity to follow him around during his most recent visit to the US. His music portfolio includes awesome shots of Bjork, Iggy Pop, U2, Coldplay, Jane's Addiction, Greg Laswell, Radiohead, and so many other great bands and musicians. I hope to one day be half the photographer Brian is. He is also one of the primary reasons I shoot on Nikon cameras, you tend to mimic your inspirations and I've been a big fan of Nikon gear ever since.
