The Wellman Lens

The Best Shots from The Indy‘s Paul Wellman

We made it. Weekend One of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival has come to a close, and, so far as we know, everyone made it through alive, despite Paseo Nuevo soirees, Montecito hoedowns, and Biltmore bashes. Hopefully, we even learned a thing or two about the world (thanks to all of the globally involved cinema) and about the private and professional lives of Helen Mirren, Will Smith, and Sacha Baron Cohen. This week offers plenty more, so keep your pace steady.

We’d like to take this time to offer this four-day retrospective from Indy photog Paul Wellman. Here’s a slideshow of his images to date.
