Out of all the photographers I have followed, Jay Maisel has been one of the most influential. His work spans decades and at Photo Plus Expot this year, a 60-year retrospective of his work will be on display. At a few points during the confrence you will fine me there. The Jay Maisel 60-Year Retrospective will run October 20-22, 2016 during the PhotoPlus Expo at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center (3 B Hall, Booth 1101)
A little about Jay Maisel
The exhibition will feature more than 30 photos by the famed photographer. Gallery hours are Thursday – Friday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
“After studying painting and graphic design at Cooper Union and Yale, Maisel began his career in photography in 1954. While his portfolio includes the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Miles Davis, he is perhaps best known for capturing the light, gesture, and color found in everyday life. This unique vision kept him busy for more than 40 years shooting annual reports, magazine covers, jazz albums, advertising and more for an array of clients worldwide.
Some of Maisel’s commercial accomplishments include five Sports Illustrated swimsuit covers, the first two covers of New York Magazine, the cover of Miles Davis’Kind of Blue (the best-selling jazz album of all time), twelve years of advertising with United Technologies, and a litany of awards from such organizations as International Center of Photography, American Society of Media Photographers, Art Directors Club (ADC), Professional Photographers of America, and Cooper Union.”
