Charles Sheeler (16 Jul 1883 – 7 May 1965))

“Born into wealth, Charles Sheeler became an artist in the 1910s, creating ‘Precisionist’ paintings that looked like photographs and sharply realist photographs that won numerous prizes. Apart from several attempts at filmmaking, Manhatta was his only film work, but ‘Church Street El’ (1920) among other paintings and photographs are renditions from the film.” —Jan-Christopher Horak
