“Do not resent growing old. Many are denied the privilege.” #theirishman opens today in select cities. #robertdeniro here shot in front of Umbertos clam house in nyc. Such an amazing person to watch work! Legend. I was using Fuji xt2s on Irish. This was shot w an older canon 45mm tilt w an adapter. Super lucky shot since it was manual focus of him running outside of the restaurant into Crazy Joe Gallo while I crunched into my usual legless garbage bag position on the street. Giant thank you to ETK!!! @aldenlola and Webb @webb888 for taking me on this very fun very long journey. And of course the master himself Marty. @martinscorsese_ ⚔️❤️
“My one great talent lies in those who wrong me suffer horribly.” #archilochus#joker We shot this in a tiny room on stage behind Murraaaays studio two cameras and a giant mirror I was shooting between legs and past transmitter antennas. Bummer. Anyway the next day Joaquin comes up to me and says did you get what you wanted in there? Granted this was my first interaction at all with him. (I generally don’t talk to actors at all. Preferring to be a shadow.) so I said. No I need more. So we did a whole shoot in here. There were a lot of images from this 10 min shoot. Unreal. Also the bonus monster image of Bobby D posterized from an image I shot of him on day zero. Again geniusness all around. @toddphillips1 for the belief in me. @lawrencesherdp for the lights Mark Friedberg for the set design @witchylogic for the giant poster @nickiledermann for the iconic makeup @kaygeorgiou for the legendary hair Mark Bridges for the powerful hyper colored costume Joel Weaver (aka Tony Bagels) for the props @kcwenson & @yomiamiamia for getting my shit together when Joker said jump. And my #1 pimps @aldenlola & @webb888 ❤️⚔️
Finally saw the #joker movie yesterday. Bleak as shit but I loved it. #joaquinphoenix was magnetically charged in his transformation. So dope. And tip my hat to ma man @toddphillips1 thanks to you and Scott Silver for making the bleak soak into our veins. Let’s do it again. @lawrencesherdp without your lights my images would be non existent. Thank you! To the whole Joker crew. You all killed it. Even Tony Bagels stole the scene. The thing that really got me while watching was the score. @hildur_gudnadottir you are amazing. Keep the darkness thudding in our ears. ⚫️⚔️ this pic was shot in Newark NJ a bit down the street from our night riots. Finding a different angle I caught Todd and Arthur in the perfect director/actor profile 2shot. One of my favorites.
“Men have called me mad. But the question is not yet settled”. #poe#joker. Joaquin gave me my own performance for this shot. I couldn’t get into this tiny bathroom set because of two cameras and a healthy dose of mirrors but I got one take. And it was fantastic. When he finished he looked at me under his brow and said ..you good? Yes thank you.
“And so he plays his part” #joker#shakespeare. On stage at Steiner’s Murray Franklin set. There was a platform in the wings you could climb up which I lurked for awhile and shot this. Just a different angle from everything else and a better vantage of the reflective floor. Good times. ⚔️
