Famous Photographer Quote #0182

Jay Maisel

“Try to go out empty and let your images fill you up.”

Jay Maisel

Interesting footnote: Maisel lives with his family in the historic Germania Bank Building in lower Manhattan. Built in 1898, the 35,000-square-foot single-family mansion contains 72 rooms over six floors. Maisel purchased the building in 1966 for $102,000 when the neighborhood was in severe decline. The building’s value estimated at $30 to $50 million in 2008. New York Magazine called it “maybe the greatest real-estate coup of all time.”
