Stonefaced2012

  • 4.2
Robert King was profiled in the New York Times in March 2013 and he was described as an "urban safari hunter of stone faces." These architectural details tend to be ignored by New Yorkers and others who walk the streets of New York City. King, a lifelong Harlem resident, loves to find and photograph these "faces in stone." He developed a secret and comic relationship with these stone faces (which this short documentary explores).

This is a remarkable, sensitive insight to architectural sculpture.The itinerary of Robert King is an appreciation of his own environment and the director shares these elements along the way.

We get to meet an amazing human being and architect, Robert King, who inspires us to look around and find meaning and wonders in building details all around us.

The man's love extends to viewing the buildings in our lives and the parts of them, as personalities, worthy of shedding a tear for.
