Robin Holland's great portrait of German film director, producer, screenwriter, author, actor and opera director Werner Herzog
Twenty-Four Pieces of Life Advice from Werner Herzog, some of them pretty well applicable to photography too. Just three plucked from the list as a sample for you:
8. There is never an excuse not to finish a film.
20. A badge of honor is to fail a film theory class.
24. Get used to the bear behind you.
According to BAM, "Herzog never saw films or television as a child and made his first phone call at the age of 17."
(Thanks to David Lobato, and to Robin for sending me the full file of her portrait of Werner)

Roy: "The newly revised edition of conversations with Werner Herzog is published as Werner Herzog: A Guide for the Perplexed: Conversations with Paul Cronin. It's absolutely outstanding and nothing at all like any other book by any cinema 'auteur' I've read previously. Just like his films really. Although I've been watching them ever since Aguirre, Wrath of God was first released I was amazed to see just how many he's actually made. His reflections cover a huge range of subjects and he has something interesting to say about everything he touches on. Brilliant."
