The [email protected] program was thrilled to welcome acclaimed photograper and author Robert Zuckerman to the Google NY office to discuss his book "Kindsight". Known for his work doing photography for motion pictures, Zuckerman's imagery has appeared in advertising and publicity for such films as The Crow, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Any Given Sunday, Training Day, Terminator 3, Bad Boys 2 and National Treasure and for such television shows as "The Shield" and "Nip/Tuck." He has also photographed campaigns for United Way and City of Hope. Through the years he has photographed numerous family portraits, weddings, pregnancy pictures and other human celebrations for people of all walks of life, from top celebrities to inner city residents to AIDS patients and others among the less fortunate. A graduate of UC Berkeley and The American Film Institute, Zuckerman co-produced the groundbreaking, award winning Video from Russia: The People Speak (1984, directed by Dimitri Devyatkin) which ran on ABC and then on A&E for three years, and he directed and produced the New York City portion of the official "Hands Across America" video in 1986. "For me, photography as much as possible has become an integration of life and craft. Through it I am able to give value to people's lives and derive value in my own life, beyond making a living," says Zuckerman. In his book the unusual and frank photos celebrate the beauty of random human encounters and turn everyday life experiences into profound visual testaments. Kindsight is a collection of photographs and accompanying texts by Zuckerman illuminating the richness of everyday life encounters and experiences. From taxi and bus drivers to waitresses, plumbers and kids at a playground, Kindsight shows the extraordinary within the ordinary. As one reader-viewer states, these pieces "see something in everything." The book includes texts by Will Smith, Debra Winger and Michael Lally, among others. Kindsight has Been Awarded Honorable Mention in the 2005 International Photography Awards (IPA Lucie) in the Book - Professional/People category This event took place on May 12, 2008.
