Acclaimed photographer Jay Maisel bought a six-story, 72-room building on the Bowery in 1966. Ever since, the site has served as his home, studio and repository for a breathtaking collection of items that inspires his photographic work. But now it must be emptied out following its sale in the largest private real estate deal in NYC history. As Maisel prepares for this monumental move, a true end of an era, he reflects on his life and work for the camera of his mentee, photographer and filmmaker Stephen Wilkes.

"After watching Jay Myself, you yourself may begin to see the world in a whole new way, as if you’d woken up to all the images that might have been invisible before, but only because you passed them by."
Owen Gleiberman - VARIETY

"In Wilkes’ heartfelt thank you note of a film, time, art and space collide, though in the end, all things must pass."
Katie Walsh - LOS ANGELES TIMES

"An ode to the artist and his city, JAY MYSELF may just make you stop and recognize beauty in a random light pattern, or in the way dust blankets an old photo."
Alex Saveliev - FILM THREAT

"JAY MYSELF paints an affectionate, curmudgeonly documentary portrait of one of New York’s greatest photographers. Jay Maisel was a star of ad photography during the “Mad Men” era, an art photographer of great renown after that and a portrait photographer whose work graced profiles and album covers, such as Miles Davis’s “Kind of Blue.”"
Roger Moore - MOVIE NATION
