Photo with 10 notes

"In the third photo I am photographing my cousin, Andy Grunther for my film ‘Ingreen’. I was twenty year old and had spent the last two years enthusiastically attending the avant garde showcases in New York City. Jonas Mekas was generous enough to come over to an apartment where I was living with a group of young film makers, including Michael Mideke, who was a great influence on me. I showed Jonas ‘Ingreen’ and he invited me to show it that week at the Washington Square Gallery on West Broadway. This was the venue for avant garde film that summer. My, to be, life long friend, Jerome Hiler, attended along with his companions, film maker, Gregory Markopoulos and avant garde film critic, Ken Kelman. I had been very affected by Gregory’s ‘Twice a Man’, especially in its early silent screenings and was extremely honored. And then Jonas wrote about ‘Ingreen’ in his Village Voice column. I was off to a grand start." - Nathaniel Dorsky
