Daniel Schwartz recalls how, early in his career, he met an eccentric fellow with a Contax camera and six expensive lenses.Jendreyko's 2018 documentary "Beyond the Obvious" is a profile of Schwartz.Jendreyko's film will be screened this week at the Beirut Art Film Festival. Documentary films about noted photographers Christian Frei's 2001 film "War Photographer," on the work of James Nachtwey, say tend to follow in a similar pattern.Naturally they devote screen time to examining the photos themselves and quizzing the photographer. Jendreyko follows this approach, interviewing Gary Knight (a colleague of Schwartz at VII photo agency) and Wolfgang Horner (the photographer's publisher), who share anecdotes about his approach to his work. He also follows Schwartz to the Karakoram region of Pakistan, where he and his Hasselblad are shooting the Batura and Passu glaciers.Over the years, Jendreyko notes, Schwartz's work has returned to the people living in crisis regions and the difficult living conditions they face.
