BYWAYS aims to capture what Deakins’ eyes have seen over the past 50 years.
Roger Deakins is one of the finest cinematographers to ever grace this earth. His name conjures up lasting images and groundbreaking films. Deakins made a name for himself in the cinema, but outwardly he was a very accomplished still photographer himself.
Now Deakins is publishing a book called BYWAYS. It contains previously unpublished black and white stills from his personal collection from 1971 to the present day.
Deakins said in a statement: “My work as a cameraman is a collaborative experience and, at least when a film is successful, the results will be seen by a large audience. On the other hand, I have rarely shared my personal photographs and never as a collection. ”
His website further describes the book’s contents and says, “Some of the pictures in this book, such as the ones from Rapa Nui, New Zealand and Australia that he took while traveling with James. Others are pictures that caught his eye as he walked. ” Catch the last light on a weekend or at the end of a day of shooting for projects in cities like Berlin or Budapest Sicario in New Mexico, Skyfall in Scotland and England 1917. ”
I am pleased to review this and see the world through Deakins’ eyes.
This is a must for any Deakins fan. Are you excited?
