    I think this is just splendiferous!!

    Beautiful, beautiful images and thoughts and messages.

    Amazing to watch/listen to the story about Martin meeting with Alfred Stieglitz. I had such a similar experience when I showed my portfolio to Milton Glazer when I was in my late twenties, going to New York to try to assess my career as a graphic designer.

    Glaser looked at my portfolio and said: Why do you think you are a graphic designer? Go get some training! Go to the School of Visual Arts and learn something!

    I did. I took one courses in illustration and graphic design.

    I then returned to see Glaser, showed him my portfolio after these courses, and he said: Okay. NOW you can call yourself a graphic designer.

    I can’t believe how similar our experiences were!!

    I apologize. Not Stieglitz. Edward Steichen.

    This film is both beautifully endearing and a great cultural contribution! Thank you for taking the time to engage with your father, Stefani and siblings, and to document in this way Martin Elkort’s lifetime accomplishments.

    I have made many close friends over the years,but none dearer to me than Marty. He was funny, self effacing and encouraging. I am privileged to have
    been a subject of his lens. We performed on stage together, worked together and laughed together.
    This film is a wonderful tribute to a wonderful guy
