VNA x Martha Cooper at MOCA from Charlie Inman on Vimeo.
One of our personal thrills during MOCA's "Art In the Streets" set-up was when Martha Cooper helped us work our new camera. There is nothing like getting tips and tutorials from one of the most legendary documentary photographers we can think of.
Very Nearly Almost shot this nice video of Martha at MOCA this past April as the photographer was setting up and documenting the show herself. The portrait of Martha Cooper turned out to be a great ode to someone who, without her forethought and admiration for graffiti, we probably wouldn't have the documentation and linear storytelling of NYC graffiti that allowed much of "Art In the Streets" to happen.
