New video documentary from Laura Barisonzi

Carmine Street Guitars at 42 Carmine Street in the West Village New York is the home to the guitar makers Rick Kelly and Cindy Hulej and the story behind a new video documentary from portrait and lifestyle photographer and director, Laura Barisonzi. 

Rick is a famous luthier who makes handmade vintage electric guitars from reclaimed wood from some of New York’s most famous buildings. As the older buildings are being demolished, Rick reclaims these “bones of old New York ” and crafts his signature pieces. He recently started a series of limited-edition Bowery Guitars and his customers have included Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Lenny K and Jim Jarmusch.
