THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

by Rudy BURCKHARDT
1940 / 16mm / b&w / silent / 1S / 8' 34




"Photographer Rudy Burckhardt shows us the city as a place for marvelous moments with a focus on the ebb and flow of people rushing about Manhattan. As in his still photographs, Burckhardt finds quiet places within this mass of ever busy humanity. Equally exhilarating is his novel approach to snap images quickly on the run, a method he inaugurated in the early 1940s. In film, he added slow and fast motion, split-screens and superimpositions to his repertory. An exquisite paean dedicated to the crowd and its life on the street." - Bruce Posner
