NOW PLAYING IN SELECT THEATERS

The Film

JAY MYSELF documents the monumental move of renowned photographer and artist, Jay Maisel, who, in February 2015 after forty-eight years, begrudgingly sold his home—the 36,000 square-foot, 100-year-old landmark building in Manhattan known simply as “The Bank.” Through the intimate lens of filmmaker and Jay’s protégé, noted artist and photographer Stephen Wilkes, the viewer is taken on a remarkable journey through Jay’s life as an artist, mentor, and man; a man grappling with time, life, change, and the end of an era in New York City.

“Energetic … a fun journey. (Maisel’s work) covers as much under the sun as a single photographer can capture in a lifetime.”

- -Glenn Kenny, The New York Times

“Lovely … every building, every street, every person is endowed with near mystical beauty.”

- – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

“(A) fascinating, improbable, only-in-a-bygone-New York story…a reflection on a life fully and unusually lived.”

- – David Alm, Forbes

“One of the most esteemed, influential photographers of his generation. Jay Maisel suggests a comical amalgamation of William Friedkin and Marlon Brando.”

- – Derek Smith, Slant
