Sisters in the Woods, artwork by Cynthia Wands, 2014.
I found this interview by Olivia de Havilland, who turns 98 years old today. I love the look of her in this interview. Her age and her dignity, reminded me so much of my own grandmother, who passed away some years ago. I don’t get to spend much time with women who are this old, and I miss that. Her story of working with a new director, and her emotions and concerns about her work, was fascinating.
In the past, I’ve found myself working with people I didn’t want to work with, and yet they have informed me and shaped me in ways I never anticipated.
I did a photography shoot with my young nieces this past week, and they were very – enthused – for short bursts of time – and challenging to direct.
But I also learned a lot about the way that they imagine things, and the way that they play, and create characters they enjoy interacting with. Actually, I think I learned a lot working with them.
