Last year two of my photos were featured, ‘The National’ as well as ‘A Wilhelm Scream’. If you are in the Toronto area please come out!
PBS America - Ansel Adams - A Documentary Film
"Ric Burns’s documentary offers an elegant portrait of Ansel Adams, the pioneering photographer and environmentalist whose work made millions of Americans aware of the beauty of their own land.
Ansel Adams first encountered the awesome majesty of Yosemite Valley as a teenager in 1916. This youthful awakening to the sublime nature of the wilderness signified the start of Adams’s mission to utilise the power of photography to reveal mankind’s place in the natural world. His work vividly depicted the beauty and fragility of the American earth, the inseparable bond of man and nature and our moral obligation to respect the land for the benefit of future generations. In his later years, Adams was one of the most recognised photographers in the world, eliciting the kind of popular response afforded to very few others in his profession. He unashamedly took advantage of his popularity to raise public awareness of the wilderness and the importance of the environment. As well as charting his dramatic accomplishments as an artist, the film provides intimate glimpses into Adams’s private life, especially his fluctuating courtship of Virginia Best, who would eventually become his wife and mother of his two children. Almost thirty years after his death, Adams’s legacy and influence on American culture remain undiminished.”
BBC Imagine - Vivian Maier: Who Took Nanny’s Pictures?
"Alan Yentob presents the incredible story of a mysterious nanny who died in 2009 leaving a secret hoard of thousands of stunning photographs. Never seen in her lifetime, they were found by chance in a Chicago storage locker and auctioned off cheaply. Now Vivian Maier’s magical pictures sell for thousands of dollars. In life she was a recluse, a hoarder, spinning tall tales about her French roots. Including stories from those who knew her and those who revealed her unique work."
IMAX - Hubble Trailer
"In May 2009, the crew of the Space Shuttle Atlantis launched a mission to make vital repairs and upgrades to the Hubble Space Telescope, the world’s first space-based optical telescope. An IMAXÒ camera captured stunning footage of the five intricate spacewalks required, as well as close-up images of the effort to grasp the orbiting telescope with the shuttle’s mechanical arm at 17,000 MPH — and an unexpected problem that could sabotage the entire mission. Hubble combines this breathtaking material with images taken during the 20 years it has been our window into space. Through advanced computer visualization, Hubble’s detailed data becomes a series of scientifically realistic flights that unfold on screen like a guided tour of the universe, through time and space."
…..I love space stuff. This documentary was an awesome look at the Hubble telescope. You get to see the amazing visuals it’s captured throughout the years and how important it has been to mankind’s space exploration. A must see for any space fan!
