"The ideal artist is unwilling to sacrifice his or her individuality to anything or anyone, particularly commercialism or outside control. Such artists often work in seclusion and their creations are uniquely pure. Gordon Brinckle was such an artist. In The Projectionist, Kendall Messick has preserved Brinckle’s important body of work in a way that is equal to the artistry of the author himself. His photographs are both tender and authentic in the greatest sense, and I found myself as close to his subject as I ever could have hoped to be."
- Albert Maysles
