The 7th Hall Of Fame Inductee For Contribution To Cinematography - Albert Maysles

The Maysles Brothers, Albert and David, are among the most powerful forces to ever enter the documentary medium, but while David took up editing duties in the cutting room, Albert was our guide behind the viewfinder into their particular perspective on reality. Throughout their catalogue, including Salesman, Gimme Shelter and Grey Garden, both before and after David’s death in 1987, there is no deviation from their verite ethos that “as a documentarian you are an observe, an author but not a director, a discoverer, not a controller.”
