Andrew Zuckerman: Wisdom

Posted on September 7th 2011

Inspired by the idea that one of the greatest gifts one generation can give to another is the wisdom it has gained from experience, photographer/filmmaker Andrew Zuckerman shot and recorded the thoughts of fifty of the world’s most prominent people over the age of sixty-five.

The images above are from the resulting book; Wisdom. As part of the process, Zuckerman also captured his subjects voices, their physical presence, and their written word. This content, as well as a documentary of the making of the project can be found on a DVD which accompanies the book.

Zuckerman has produced several other stand out projects, including Music, Birds, Creature and High Falls. You can see more on his website.

In the video below he discusses his working process and argues that curiosity is an essential part of the creative’s condition. But it’s even more powerful when combined with rigorous technique.

I often find learning about the process and thoughts that go in to a good piece of work as interesting as the work itself. For me, Zuckerman is definitely an artist who ticks both boxes. Truly inspirational.
