Clemens Kalischer | A Random Selection

Posted: May 5th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Film, New York City

For much of his career Clemens Kalischer has played the role of the Invisible Man. It is a role that seems to suit him. Never inclined to seek the limelight, he has quietly over six decades built a body of work notable for its high quality and open-armed embrace of the varied human condition.

    Spent four hours with Clemens in his Stockbridge, MA studio today (2/16/2014). Lovely body of work and an incredible mind.

    His word of advice for aspiring photogs: “Follow your instincts.”
