Hillman on Romanek
Portraits of artists are always interesting because they tend to communicate difficult ideas very simply and also usually tend to be honest on how they view the world. Hillman Curtis has been doing some really wonderful work on artists for a while, his recent portrait of Music Video director Mark Romanek is another little gem. Talking about a Stanley Kubrick’s intensity, you can see that he is wishfully talking about himself. I love stuff like that.
Anyways, my favorite Romanek’s video was the one he did of Johnny and June Cash. It has to be up there in my all time favorites. It is going to be interesting as people record the lives more and more, how much easier and wonderful it is going to be to tell their stories.
