CoPA + MFF 2019: Jay Myself
On the opposite end of the spectrum from Marie Kondo lies renowned artist and photographer Jay Maisel, who spent decades filling up his 36,000-square-foot Manhattan building before having to sell it. What emerges in Maisel’s relocation process is an archaeological excavation into the life of an artist seen through his accumulated treasures. Captured by Stephen Wilkes—one of Maisel’s followers and a noted artist himself— Jay Myself is a love letter to a life spent appreciating the literal small things.
“An ode to the artist and his city, Jay Myself may just make you stop and recognize beauty in a random light pattern, or in the way dust blankets an old photo.”
