    Not only is the story so captivating, but the way he was able to capture emotions or tell a story in a single shot is just amazing.

    Warning: it's a full length documentary so not for everyone.

    Thanks for the heads up, Gary. I'll watch it (in my comfy chair) on my Apple TV tonight.

    Woof! That was great. I had heard of him, but I had no idea what a Renaissance man he was. I wish they had shown more of his photography, but he had so many talents, I guess they had to spend some time on each of them. Thanks, Gary!

    Thanks David
    I'm glad I'm not the only one that enjoys a good documentary from time to time.
    I think him being such a renaissance man contributed to his eye for photography. I've come to realize that an open mind and special art are complementary to each other. Rarely do the greats do one thing or live one way. They try and enjoy many things. They seem to embrace the diversity in the world and in themselves. We can all learn from that.
