Jay Myself: Photography, the Bank, and Me is an interesting new documentary about photographer Jay Maisel and the massive 35,000 square-foot, 72-room former Germania Bank Building he called home on 190 Bowery for nearly five decades.
The film documents Jay’s monumental move through the eyes of filmmaker and Jay’s protege, noted artist and photographer Stephen Wilkes. It is through this intimate lens that the viewer is taken on a remarkable journey through Jay’s life as an artist, mentor and man; a man grappling with time, life, change, and the end of an era in New York City.
