Interesting article on Vero. Thanks. I’m wondering what the income model is. For a long time, Facebook was trying to find its way and ads became the norm. I think an ad-free site is wonderful. But, I’m curious how they will pay for the huge amount of data management. If it’s not a subscription service, who pays the bills?
Jay Maisel is or should be a national treasure! I found the biography captivating. I could identify with his daughter, Amanda, that he can be a bit frustrating with his narrow focus on what appears to be the mundane; however, I find his innocence and creativity amazing. He is, and would have been for any aspiring photographer, an incredible mentor. I found those little snippets of his philosophy and methods inspiring. Jay leaves you with a fresh sense of how to look at things around you that I find refreshing. I would love to have worked with him at some time. Hats off to Stephen Wilkes for getting in there and doing what needed to be done. This story was a ton of work, I can see, and he communicated the essence of Jay Maisel brilliantly. I think that the only remorseful side of this story is that 190 Bowery could not be preserved as “The Jay Maisel Museum”. What a fascinating man and incredibly gifted photographer!
