Michael S Obit: RIP George Pickow (10 Dec 2010, age 88) (62* d) RE: Sad News - RIP George Pickow (8 Dec 2010, age 91) 16 Dec 10

Sad news. I add my condolences.

I want to note that George Pickow was an accomplished photographer and cinematographer. He shot much of the footage of the Newport Folk Festival (circa mid-1960s) that ended up in the acclaimed Newport documentary, Festival. Somewhere in the recesses of my mind I recall hearing about a tussle between George and Murray Lerner regarding ownership rights. Lerner is credited as director. My DVD copy of the film credits a George Pico as associate producer. I don't know if that's a mistake or a deliberate pseudonym, but it's Mr. Pickow.

If anyone can clarify/add to my understanding of George's role in this film, I'd appreciate it.

His sounds like a life well-lived.
