Babette Mangolte and the New York Avant-Garde

[T]he film is a self-portrait of the photographer-filmmaker during the years 1976-1977. (BM)

Mangolte’s second feature focuses on the problem of how we see. Using a technique called the “subjective camera,” Mangolte invites the viewer behind the camera as she takes pictures of her models in her studio, and then strolls in the streets of downtown New York. Situated in the photographer’s shoes, the audience witnesses an artistic process permeated with control, concentration and improvisation.
