Legendary documentarian and cinematographer Albert Maysles

I just returned from a party at Barneys on Oak Street with legendary documentarian and cinematographer Albert Maysles. Some have called him the greatest cameraman of our time. When we took the picture above we did about 4 takes until we found one we both liked. He kept telling the camera man zoom in closer. I just watched a great documentary last week he did on Muhammad Ali and Larry Holmes on ESPN. We had a fun time chatting about our mutual love of psychology and Chicago. We joked around about our glasses. He told me he has been wearing the same pair for over 40 years. If you want a pair like our glasses you can get them at
