This is the only photographer I can relate to…. so far.
Jay Maisel’s is exactly how I see my own.
The amazing thing about Maisel is that, as photographer Greg Heisler puts it, his work is “purely and simply about the joy of seeing.” And although we won’t spoil any more of the gems in this great little documentary, one comment by Maisel really stuck out to us:
“Any picture that I’ve done that really is worth anything, I’ve been terrified the entire time I was shooting it. If you’re not scared that you’re gonna lose it, it ain’t that great a picture.”
You heard him, so go out there and take some terrifying pictures. And if you happen to have seven and a half minutes to kill before you grab your camera, do yourself a favor and watch this documentary.
