Filmmaker Jonas Mekas spent time with the Kennedys and taught the kids how to use 16mm film cameras. His documentary film will have a screening as well as an exhibit of the photos taken during that time. Let’s check some of the images…
To help ease the transition of life without a father, Jackie Kennedy invited filmmaker Jonas Mekas and spent a few summers with the Kennedy, as well as the Radziwill families in Montauk during the 1970s. Jonas introduced the Kennedy children to cinema and taught them how to use 16mm cameras.
The images are currently being exhibited at the Agnès b. Galerie Boutique. These rare photos were taken from Jonas Mekas’ documentary film called This Side of Paradise which he shot during his stay with the Kennedys. It will have a special screening on October 13 at the Anthology Film Archives in New York City so if you’re around the area, be sure to check this out.
Between 1959 and 196, photojournalist Lee Lockwood captured some rare and fascinating insights into the enigmatic life of Communist leader Fidel Castro. His portrait and documentation of Cuba's transformation during the 1960s is now republished as a photo book, including never before seen images.
We all have our ways of making our cameras our own, making them do what we want, and helping us to remember how to use them. This is my take on making my Sprocket Rocket mine, with marks and hints on making it easier to use.
