Picture of Places, strange and quiet

Publisher's Description

“When you travel a lot, and when you love to just wander around and get lost, you can end up in the most unusual spots. . . . I don’t know, it must be some sort of built-in radar that often directs me to places that are strangely quiet, or quietly strange.”

Wim Wenders—painter, writer, and one of the most successful contemporary filmmakers around—has assembled a fascinating series of large-scale photographs taken in countries all over the world. From his iconic images of exteriors and buildings to his panoramic depictions of towns and landscapes, this book presents the full range of Wenders’s photography.

This new edition features seven new photographs taken in Germany and Fukushima as well as an essay by Wim Wenders on analogue and digital photography.

Picture of Tarkovsky Films, Stills, Polaroids & Writings

Publisher's Description

Andrey Tarkovsky was the most important Russian filmmaker of the post-war era, and one of the world’s most renowned cinematic geniuses.

Tarkovsky’s films are characterized by metaphysical themes, extended takes, an absence of conventional dramatic structure and plot, and a dream-like, visionary style of cinematography. They achieve a spiritual intensity and transcendent beauty that many consider to be without parallel.

He directed the first five of his seven films – Ivan’s Childhood, Andrei Rublev, Solaris, Mirror and Stalker – in the Soviet Union, but in 1982 defected to Italy, where he made Nostalgia. His final film, The Sacrifice, was produced in Sweden in 1985.

This book presents extended sequences of stills from each of the films alongside synopses and cast and crew listings. It includes reflections on Tarkovsky’s work from fellow artists and writers including Jean-Paul Sartre and Ingmar Bergman, for whom Tarkovsky was ‘the greatest, the one who invented a new language.’

Extracts from Tarkovsky’s own writings and diaries offer a wealth of insights into his poetic and philosophical views on cinematography, which he described as ‘sculpting in time’. The book also reproduces many personal Polaroid photographs that confirm the extraordinary poetic vision of a great artist who died aged only 54, but who remains a potent influence on artists and filmmakers today.

Picture of Images, Still and Moving

Publisher's Description

Abbas Kiarostami (*1940 in Teheran) became known primarily for his films made in the seventies, which were awarded prizes at film festivals such as Cannes (Golden Palm 1997) and Venice. Despite large-scale solo exhibitions at institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the photographic oeuvre of this artist, who studied painting, has yet to be showcased in germanophone countries. Whereas Kiarostami’s films contain haunting images of the human experience, he trains his photographic eye on untouched landscapes, often taking years to develop the images into series such as Snow White (1978–2004) and Rain and Wind (2007). This publication explores the correlation between photographic and filmic vision, between still and moving images.

Picture of Hot Spots: Martin Parr in the American South

Publisher's Description

The documentary Hot Spots: Martin Parr in the American South, examines the photography of Magnum's most controversial and prolific member as he gathers images for his first commission by a major American art museum, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.

Acclaimed Magnum photographer Martin Parr focuses on Atlanta while documentary filmmaker Neal Broffman turns his lens on Parr.

So it begins at the Cactus Car Wash on Ponce de Leon Avenue in a frantic rush of wash, dry, polish and chrome brightness. Martin Parr is out of the car, the camera flashes away. He strikes up a conversation with one of the washers about tips from customers. So begins his first day in Atlanta.

From the first click at the car wash to the Atlanta Steeple Chase, to the doggy daycare, to gallery soirées and tattooed partiers at the Drive Invasion Parr moves across the Atlanta landscape as he likes to do. His journey is guided by humor and instinct (with some help from the locals). Martin Parr's energy and x-ray vision burn through Atlanta like a modern day William Hogarth.

The film features interviews with Susan Meiselas, Philip Gefter, Julian Cox and John Gossage. Hot Spots shows us Martin Parr at his best.

Hot Spots: Martin Parr in the American South is produced by One Production Place in collaboration with Contrasto and Fall Line Press.
The film is distributed by F-Stop Films.

The film and the international edition of the book Up and Down Peachtree, published by Contrasto, run together with the homonymous exhibition beginning on June 9 until to September 2,  2012 at the High Museum in Atlanta, Georgia.

Picture of Hollywood Unseen: Photographs from the John Kobal Foundation

Publisher's Description

"This wonderful book brought back many memories of my endless hours spent in the studio stills gallery posing for countless photographers in a variety of 'turn 'em on' outfits!...Most of the photographs in this fascinating book of pictures, some of which have never been seen before, are of that sweet and innocent kind, overseen by a protective studio system that by the early 1960s no longer existed." Joan Collins

Hollywood Unseen is a tribute to the incredible inventiveness and ingenuity of the great Hollywood film studios: Columbia, Paramount, MGM, Universal, Warner Brothers, RKO and Twentieth Century Fox. From the late 1920s to the early 1950s these studios presided over the 'Golden Age of Cinema', and their publicity departments created some of the most stunning and iconic images of Hollywood's stars ever taken.

Here, for the first time, are photographs showing the 'ordinary lives' of the stars, including Rita Hayworth, Gary Cooper, Humphrey Bogart and Marilyn Monroe. In reality, these photographs were as carefully constructed and prepared as any classic portrait or scene, and they depicted the actors and actresses exactly as the studios wanted them to be seen. The publicity departments cleverly formed an idealised view of the husbands, wives, children, pets, parties, premieres and hobbies of the stars. Ironically, many of the images were only used once or twice, and were then never seen again. Drawn from the extensive archive of the John Kobal Foundation, this book showcases an extraordinary collection of these hidden photographic gems.

Picture of With Marilyn:  An Evening 1961

Publisher's Description

"For 30 years Douglas Kirkland has made his living by doing what some photographers might gladly do without charge: taking pictures of glamorous celebrities. In creating the kind of poster-perfect images publicity agents dream of - Marilyn Monroe clad only in silk sheets, for example - he has few peers." Andy Grunberg, The New York Times

"Though portraiture is a great strength - [Kirkland's] initial apprenticeship was with Irving Penn - it's his journalistic eye that makes for the most striking images." Fred Schruers, Portfolio Magazine

On assignment for Look magazine to photograph the movie star in 1961, Douglas Kirkland photographed Marilyn Monroe and made history for both himself and for the actress. Working in the intimate confines of an unmade bed, the result - still amazing today - is a series of some of the most spontaneous and flirtatious photographs ever taken of this film legend. They made the photographer's career and added a new facet to that of the actress.

The complete collection of the shoot is accompained here ina book that belongs on the shelf of every collector, devotee, and connoisseur of the icon that was Marilyn Monroe, the genius that is Douglas Kirkland, or both.

Picture of Metropolis
Publisher's Description
Fritz Lang’s Metropolis (1927) is a defining film of the silent era and science fiction genre. But the work of the film’s still photographer Horst von Harbou has remained obscure. Von Harbou, brother of Thea von Harbou, Lang’s then wife and co-screenwriter of Metropolis, photographed filmed scenes as well as off-camera action, and made an album of thirty-five photographs which he gave to the film’s young star Brigitte Helm. The book Metropolis is a careful reconstruction of this album, showing the photographs and some of their backsides which feature hand-written notes. Von Harbou’s photographs not only offer a rare insight into Lang’s film, but have been crucial in reconstructing missing scenes from it.

Picture of Human and Animal Locomotion Photographs

Publisher's Description
English photographer Eadweard Muybridge was a pioneer in visual studies of human and animal locomotion. In 1872, he famously helped settle a bet for former California governor Leland Stanford by photographing a galloping horse. Muybridge invented a complex system of electric shutter releases that captured freeze frames—proving conclusively, for the first time, that a galloping horse lifts all four hooves off the ground for a fraction of a second. For the next three decades, Muybridge continued his quest to fully catalog many aspects of human and animal movement, shooting hundreds of horses and other animals—and of nude or draped subjects engaged in various activities such as running, walking, boxing, fencing, and descending a staircase (the latter study inspired Marcel Duchamp’s famous 1912 painting).

This resplendent book traces the life and work of Muybridge, from his early thinking about anatomy and movement to his latest photographic experiments. The complete 781 plates of Muybridge’s groundbreaking Animal Locomotion (1887) are reproduced here. In addition, Muybridge’s handmade and extremely rare first illustrated album, The Attitudes of Animals in Motion (1881) is reproduced in its entirety. A detailed chronology by British researcher Stephen Herbert throws new light on one of the most important pioneers of photography.

Picture of Sanctuary
Publisher's Description
While visiting Rome, world-renowned photographer Gregory Crewdson was invited to tour the legendary Italian film studio Cinecittà, where directors such as Federico Fellini and Roberto Rossellini shot their iconic works. He found the elaborate film sets had fallen into ruin and was captivated by their decaying beauty. He knew immediately that he had found his next project. While Crewdson’s earlier series were enormously elaborate and required massive production crews, custom-built sound stages, and hired actors, he returned to Rome with only a small team and worked mostly with available lighting to create haunting black-and-white portraits of crumbling façades and deserted streets. However, all this does not really indicate a break with his earlier series, for the dramatic subtext so often found in his photographs, the uncanny feeling that they bring the past back to life, remains.

Picture of Sam Shaw
Publisher's Description
Charming photographs of icons from the history of cinema: Marlon Brando, Paul Newman, Audrey Hepburn, Sidney Poitier, Marilyn Monroe—and countless others

The amiably spontaneous pictures taken by Sam Shaw (1912–1999) are well known: the native and life-long New Yorker shot countless cover photographs for Life and Look in the fifties and sixties, and later also took the still images for the films he produced himself. Shaw and Marilyn Monroe were friends, and he captured her unique aura in countless unpretentious portraits. During the filming of The Seven Year Itch, he staged his probably best known picture with her: Marilyn standing over a subway grate, a waft of air blowing the skirt of her white dress above her knees.

Sam Shaw also portrayed almost every major Hollywood star of his day, consistently capturing the moment in his quest for truthfulness, with enthusiasm and from a new perspective, just as if he were selecting the camera angle for a film sequence. The researcher and author Lorie Karnath, the book’s editor, enhances the publication with very personal memories of her long-time friend.

Picture of Dennis Hopper and New Hollywood
Publisher's Description
Dennis Hopper – a rebel with a cause called New Hollywood. The road movie Easy Rider, 1969, was a huge commercial hit and a seminal film for the American new wave. In the United States that Hopper both depicted and embodies as a young man, rock music met with pop art, realism cohabited with psychedelic experience, and the producer-driven Hollywood of old caved into the demands of a new generation. An inverted image of the American dream and a borderline icon for the greatest film directors of modern times (Coppola, Peckinpah, Altman, Wenders, Lynch , Ferrara), Dennis Hopper has always kept one foot in the anti-establishment, but the other in mainstream cinema and television series. A true chameleon, he has crossed the borders of fiction and reality, art and cinema. This work, accompanying an exhibition conceived and organised by the Cinematheque Francaise, showcases masterpieces from Dennis Hopper’s collection that encapsulate the American counterculture of the last forty years. From Andy Warhol to Ed Ruscha, from Roy Lichtenstein to Jean-Michel Basquait, the selection, which also includes a number of Hopper’s own paintings and photographs, brings to light the relationship between Hopper’s artwork and his cinematographic career.
