BROOKLYN, N.Y., May 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Iconic and award-winning photographer Jay Maisel is pleased to announce the launch of his new website, www.jaymaisel.com
The website has seven photographic collections, prefaced with his thoughts about some of the never-before-published photos of his travels in 35 countries and trips across the United States. The collections include photographs of Jazz greats including Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington, as well as images of Maisel's life at his former residence at 190 Bowery, and street photography throughout Manhattan.
For those wondering what the legendary photographer has been doing since the sale of his former residence at 190 Bowery in 2015, he says, "I now spend my time looking at all the stuff I shot on film over the years. I enjoy going back over all the work. I feel very lucky to be able to have the chance to edit all the work that I never had time to edit because I was always shooting."
Mr. Maisel has reviewed hundreds of thousands of 35mm Kodachrome slides and selected his favorite images for publication. The Kodachrome images span 46 years, from 1954 to 2000. After 2000, Jay exclusively shot digital.
The website also contains links to video interviews and editorials about Jay's thoughts on photography.
All of the images on the new website are available for purchase as signed limited edition fine art prints. Visitors can also purchase signed copies of his most recent books: Light Gesture and Color, It's Not About the F-Stop, and Jay Maisel's: New York in the '50's.
