Gayle Kirschenbaum
Still Moments (virtually)

A virtual walkthrough of the celebrated photography exhibition at Westbeth, curtailed due to the Covid 19 crisis.

“Give me a plane, train or bus ticket, or a set of wheels and I promise I will come back with photos and stories that will warm your heart.” Never leaving home without her IPhone, intrepid Emmy award winning Netflix filmmaker and TEDx speaker, Gayle Kirschenbaum, can’t stop herself. Her insatiable curiosity to see the world, to learn about others and to document her experiences and impressions has been captured in her first solo photo exhibition called STILL MOMENTS.

“Kirschenbaum’s photos are gorgeous! Not only does she have a very keen eye, but the photos all have such life, and show such life. I felt uplifted as I was looking at them and carried that away with me afterwards.”

Gayle Kirschenbaum is a creator who expresses herself in many forms. She began life as a visual artist and started taking photos where she loved spending hours in her darkroom. She found herself shooting stories with her photographs and painting them in an impressionist way. Her desire to use words and sound led her to moving images. She became an Emmy award-winning filmmaker whose films and programs have premiered on Netflix, HBO, and Discovery. They include Look At Us Now, Mother!, A Dog’s Life: A Dogamentary, My Nose and Little Parents. Her last film led to an invitation to give a TEDx talk called No More Drama With Mama about forgiveness. She speaks and teaches on this topic. Gayle has found herself returning to her first love, photography. Her photographs were exhibited in Spain at the Barcelona Foto Biennale in October 2018, she received an honorable mention under landscape for the Pollux Awards 2019, have been in Westbeth group shows and a solo show.

She has been featured widely in the media including New York Times, NBC Today Show, Jerusalem Post and Psychology Today. She is a member of Producers Guild of America (PGA) and a judge for the Emmys and PGA.
