Shown with brother David, filming a scene from Grey Gardens
Printed Photograph Signed in Ink: "Albert Maysles". B/w, 10x8. Captioned in lower margin. Shown filming a scene from Grey Gardens. Albert Maysles (1926-2015) and his brother David Maysles (1932-1987) formed a documentary filmmaking team, specializing in "direct cinema" which allows the protagonists to speak for themselves. The Maysles brothers produced most of the film for The Beatles: the First U.S. Visit (1964). Their documentaries included Salesman (1969), Gimme Shelter (1970), Cristo's Valley Curtain (1974, Oscar nominated) and Grey Gardens (1976). Grey Gardens chronicled the Beales, a mother and daughter, closely related to Jackie Kennedy Onassis, who lived together in self-imposed isolation in a decrepit East Hampton mansion. An Emmy-winning HBO film, also titled Grey Gardens and focused on the making of the documentary, aired in 2009. Albert Maysles, who French director Jean-Luc Goddard called "the best American cameraman," has continued making films since his brother's death, most recently The Love We Make (about Paul McCartney's preparations for the 9/11 concert, 2011). He heads the nonprofit Albert Maysles Institute, and a film maker's community, Shooting People. Lightly creased. Slightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
