“Eric Minh Swenson and Harry Gesner”
Recently I took a field trip to the studio of Malibu artist Gay Summer Rick (next week’s blog subject). There I met documentary filmmaker and photographer Eric Minh Swenson for the first time . Interviewing Eric is an experience in a gorilla zen type of way!
Harry Gesner is a renown architect , innovator and environmentalist. i have met Harry several times since Trancas , a Great White Pyreness was under my watch when he ran like the wind over to Harry’s to court his black Labrador. Years later I had the opportunity twice to sell a home designed by Harry. The round house was unique and built around the beautiful views of the ocean and Encinal Bluffs. When my clients had to move, they worried they would never be happy living in a rectangle again!
Eric has done a fabulous mini-documentary on Harry Gesner “Architect, Environmentalist, Visionary:
This lovely tribute to Harry is a joy to watch. The documentary is part of a series “While they Work; Artist sharing their process”. Among the other artists featured are Gay Summer Rick ,Mary Wright, Robert Standish, Chris Burden (Urban Lights ).
