Great movie about seeing
28 October 2019 | by deborah-99172See all my reviews

The photographer Jay Meisel had the rare fortune to own and live in a 6-story former bank building in New York City. The Bank is stuffed to the gills with slides, photographs, film, objects of every kind that struck Meisel's fancy over the years. This movie is all about what it means to see, how any object can be fascinating or any view can contain multiple photographs. For anyone interested in color, light, composition and humanity, this is a great film experience. The driving narrative is the dismantling of 50 years of collecting in what might be the last remaining artist-owned massive playground of living and work space in NYC, but on the way we learn about the man and his singular vision.
