About this deal

T. the Extra-Terrestrial: The Ultimate Visual History—the definitive account of the motion picture phenomenon and a must-have for fans of the beloved Steven Spielberg classic. And I was unhappy until I started taking photographs as a way to help illustrate a book cover or something like that. Given the opportunity to see some of his personal work, not under the direction of others is not an opportunity I'll easily pass up. A documentarian can approach the work with anger or sarcasm or irony, as well as love or compassion. Here, Chris Cotonou goes behind-the-scenes in the making of the film's car chase segment in which he arguably topped The French Connection.

Byways' includes previously unpublished black-and-white photographs spanning five decades, from 1971 to the present. Byways" is the first monograph on the photographic work of iconic Oscar-winning cinematographer Sir Roger A. I’m very lucky that Pete Franciosa got behind it, and he found a publisher (Damiano in Italy), and they were supportive of the idea. Nominated for an Oscar 15 times, he has won the award twice for the films Blade Runner 2049 and 1917.Deakins few hobbies although it is more often an excuse for him to spend hours just walking, his camera over his shoulder, with no purpose by to observe.

You wonder if she’s shocked by the naked lady lying face down in the sun or is she dreaming of being somewhere else other than Western Super Mare. Traveling for his cinematic work has allowed Deakins to photograph landscapes all over the world; in this third group of images, that same irony remains evident. All limited-edition and sale items or where items are noted in the product description are final - no exchanges no refund.

However, for Deakins, photography has often been a solitary endeavor, an antidote to the ‘enjoyable’ yet intensely collaborative process of working on films.

With black-and-white images, the viewer looks at the content and the composition of the light more than anything else. In the introduction to the book, Deakins says, “I am not a still photographer and I won’t pretend to be one at this stage in my career. Renowned for his collaborations with some of the most distinguished directors of our time, Deakins has, over the years, bestowed his unique vision on such celebrated titles as The Shawshank Redemption , Fargo , A Beautiful Mind , Skyfall , Blade Runner 2049 , and 1917 . Byways started as something specific and became more about things I have observed throughout my life. After graduating from college Deakins spent a year photographing life in rural North Devon, in South West England, on a commission for the Beaford Arts Centre; these images are gathered here for the first time and attest to a keenly ironic English sensibility, also documenting a vanished postwar Britain.
