“Last week we were saddened to learn that photographer Robin Holland had passed away at the age of sixty. In the work she did for a long list of collaborators and clients, including publications like the Village Voice and the New York Times, Holland shot everyone from politicians and celebrities to ordinary New Yorkers. But she had a particularly keen eye for artists, and her unfailingly perceptive portraits of some of the world’s greatest directors—David Lynch, Lucrecia Martel, Chantal Akerman, Werner Herzog, Spike Lee—demonstrated a deep passion for cinema and a sensitivity to its creators, making her a trusted figure in New York City’s film culture.”

Lo and Behold is his look at the creation and ramifications of this wild thing we call the internet, though it goes beyond that, touching on technology in general and the way the waves of cell towers have proliferated the world at large. This includes a woman who fled from civilization because of those “harmful” waves, a family who insists that the internet is the work of the devil, and a group of monks who stand idly around with their smartphones in hand, perhaps, as Herzog observes, tweeting rather than meditating.”
