I was along for some of the filming, and appear briefly photographing with Brett at Point Lobos (with my Calumet 4x5). I believe that it is still available from Art, I heard from him a few months ago. Some on this forum have purchased the DVD and may chime in.


    I purchased the DVD several years ago, found it quite enjoyable. You really get an insight about how photographically driven Brett was. I also remember seeing a younger Merg Ross.
    Hi Alan,

    Thanks for your comment on Art's film. Indeed, a younger Merg Ross for sure!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the DVD also. I've never seen one of his prints in person but really like his use of dense blacks. I see a little bit of Brett in Merg's work also, or is it a little of Merg in Brett's work...

    Great to find this out! Thank you! I drove to Daytona last Saturday to visit the Southeast Museum of Photography for the last day of two shows there. It's an 85 mile drive from Jacksonville where I live, but it will be well worth it! Thanks again.

    Is this exhibition traveling to other cities?
