Movies & Books

There are some great movies about artists. Many of them can be found at Netflix. I recently watched Girl with the Pearl Earring, Freda, and Artemesia. There’s also one about Goldworthy, the earth sculptor.

I also happened on a book called Portrait of an Artist, a biography of Georgia O’Keefe, by Laurie Lisle. That book got me thinking about trying to create more abstract work using photography. (More about that in another post)

Update: I just watched a movie about Cartier-Bresson.  It’s an interview with him and shows alot of his work. It’s a wonderful piece of documentary as well as being interesting just because Henri finally let himself be photographed.  He had some interesting things to say about the culture of the US changing after the ’70’s and the photos showing something getting ready to change.

I recommend the movie; get it from Netflix.
