Photographer Barney Taxel loves cinema! So when the Cleveland International Film Festival staff approached him last year about designing the filmmakers’ awards for this year's CIFF, he was thrilled.
The staff chose a photo of a unique Cleveland location, “and it actually no longer exists as photographed,” explains Taxel. “So the image represents, on many levels, a special moment in Cleveland time.”
Taxel has a “fabulous career based in Cleveland” that began in the early 1970s. He specializes in food, architectural, corporate, health care, and still-life photography for agencies, designers, architects, publications, institutions, and manufacturers.
He credits his long career to "maintaining the highest production values, learning from mistakes, staying focused, staying open to opportunities, and being considerate of others," says Taxel. Those qualities "usually yield the desired result." He also suggests that artists, filmmakers, and other creative types make sure they "keep in touch with the creative spark" that launched them into the field to begin with.
Taxel and his wife, writer Laura Taxel, have been great film fans and supporters of the CIFF for years. Look for them at the festival.
