(Video link here.) Peter Beard: A Wild Life is a lovely little film of photographer Peter Beard working on a collage at his studio on Montauk, Long Island. He is widely known for his photographs both of pop stars like Mick Jagger and Andy Warhol and of the tragic destruction of elephant herds in Africa. Here at age 75, he has distilled his thoughts about his work and life:
I like things that don’t look like you’re in control. It’s like life itself. You just learn how to benefit from accidents and chances you take.
