Andrew Zuckerman’s 99% Conference Talk

In this 99% Conference talk, photographer and filmmaker Andrew Zuckerman shares the lessons learned from his iconic WISDOM project, in which he interviewed “elders” around the world, including Chuck Close, Bill Withers, Jane Goodall, Frank Gehry, Massimo Vignelli, and many more. Zuckerman talks about the anxiety we feel as we start a new project, how fear can help us get things done, and the importance of honesty and good, old-fashioned hard work.

  1. Brilliant seeing hearing Bill Withers in his dottage “You can’t get to wonderful without going through alright”. So many fond memories of hearing Bill Withers, Sixto Rodriguez, Eddy Taney and all the long lost legends on Sussex records

  2. Thank you for this. It’s very interesting and very inspiring. It would be neat to see the Wisdom exhibition in Canada.

  3. Getting projects done is all about curiosity and rigor. Inspiration is for amateurs. Like that.
