Synopsis: The spirit of Gemini is best captured by the word 'collaboration'. It's about artists and printers working hand in hand to create works of art. This same spirit prevails when I take photos. There's a trust extended by the artists, allowing me to share so many special moments with them. -Sidney Felsen
About the Author: Sidney Felsen founded Gemini Gel (Graphics Editions Limited) in 1966 and soon after began to photograph the artists who came to work in what has become America's premier graphics studio. Artists from Bruce Nauman and architect Frank Gehry (who also de-signed the Gemini Studios in 1979) to the American masters Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, and Roy Lichtenstein became subjects for Sid Felsen's camera. On November 4, 2001, the National Gallery in Washington, D.C., opened an exhibition celebrating the prints of Gemini GEL and Sidney Felsen's portraits of the artists at work.
