“In the Spirit”

Along with George Nierenberg’s 1982 documentary, Say Amen, Somebody, one of the biggest influences on the production of By and By has been the photography of Michael P. Smith.

By and By producer/director Joe Compton was friends with Mike, and this video from the Historic New Orleans Collection gives some insight into why By and By is very much a tribute to Smith’s preservationist work.
