Thank you very much!
I had never seen this film before; nor had I ever heard AA playing the piano.
Nice to see... especially nice to see a humble CC-400 (or 401) in his collection. No bells and whistles, but a solid, reliable camera.
A. A. is often a favourite target for criticism for one reason or another, but there is no denying his technical mastery. His dodging and burning of the seaside picture was (aptly) like a conductor coaxing music from an orchestra.
Did they actually say he could make "hundreds of fine prints in a day"? That, in itself is pretty amazing.
Thanks! A very nice documentary! :)
I wonder how much that portfolio of prints that they showed is worth now...
Also kinda interesting to see he developed and fixed the prints with bare hands, no tongs or gloves.
