The image to come : how cinema inspires photographers by Serge Toubiana( Book )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Magnum Photos and the Cinematheque Francaise sendt 10 photographers to the movies and asked them to create original work in response to the oeuvre of a film director who has influenced their vision. In carrying out the assignment, Abbas, Antoine D'Agata, Bruce Gilden, Harry Gruyaert, Gueorgui Pinkhassov, Gilles Peress, Mark Power, Alec Soth, Donovan Wylie and Patrick Zachmann have set out to absorb all the mixed media that differentiates the moving image from their own intensely distilled single frames: Beyond prints, projections and film stills, they consider audio-visual material, written notes, soundtracks, and publications, each in his own way exploring the domain of the visible. Among their subjects: Pinkhassov looks at Andrei Tarkovski, Gruyaert at Michelangelo Antonioni, Abbas at Roberto Rossellini, Power at Krzysztof Kieslowski, Soth at Wim Wenders and Gilden more broadly at film noir from the 40s and 50s

Dennis Hopper : on the road by Dennis Hopper( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Director, actor, photographer, artist and art collector, Dennis Hopper was a man of diverse talents who intersected with countless key moments in American culture--particularly, and most famously, in the 1960s. Hopper's great gifts as a photographer are well established, with many of his images having entered public consciousness. This handsomely produced volume looks at Hopper's photography throughout its glory years, from 1961 to 1967. In these years, Hopper carried a camera everywhere, from bars to marches, art openings to freeways. Conceived as a kind of road trip across America, the book runs the gamut of 1960s counterculture and film culture, taking in Warhol's Factory (where Hopper spent much time), film shoots, street scenes, road trips and of course the classic portraits of movie stars, musicians, artists, bikers and activists, from Martin Luther King to Allen Ginsberg and James Brown. The result of exhaustive research into the artist's archives at the Dennis Hopper Art Trust, and with a wealth of previously unpublished images, Dennis Hopper: On the Road offers a first-hand, collective portrait of an era. Dennis Hopper (1936-2010) was an American actor, filmmaker and artist. An exceptional creative talent, his work in film, photography, painting and sculpture gained him both critical acclaim and a high public profile. He won an award at the Cannes Film Festival for 1969's Easy Rider. His photographic work continues to be featured in high-profile international exhibitions."

Sherlock Holmes (1916) by Arthur Berthelet( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long considered lost until a complete dupe negative was identified in the vaults of La Cinémathèque française last year, this William Gillette film is a vital missing link in the history of Sherlock Holmes on screen. By the time it was produced at Essanay Studios in 1916, Gillette had been established as the world’s foremost interpreter of Holmes on stage—having played him approximately 1300 times since his 1899 debut. This newly-restored edition, thanks to the monumental efforts of both the San Francisco Silent Film Festival and La Cinémathèque française, represents the sole surviving appearance of Gillette’s Holmes on film. Presented with optional French and English intertitles and an original score composed and performed by Neil Brand, Guenter Buchwald, and Frank Bockius, Flicker Alley is honored to bring Sherlock Holmes onto Blu-ray and DVD for the first time ever. The film faithfully retains the play’s famous set pieces—Holmes’s encounter with Professor Moriarty, his daring escape from the Stepney Gas Chamber, and the tour-de-force deductions. It also illustrates how Gillette, who wrote the adaptation himself, wove bits from Conan Doyle’s stories ranging from “A Scandal in Bohemia” to “The Final Problem,” into an original, innovative mystery play. Film restorer Robert Byrne says, “It’s an amazing privilege to work with these reels that have been lost for generations. William Gillette’s Sherlock Holmes has ranked among the holy grails of lost film and my first glimpse of the footage confirms Gillette’s magnetism. Audiences are going to be blown away when they see the original Sherlock Holmes on screen for the first time.”
