In preparation for shooting the film Paris, texas in late 1983, Wim Wenders traveled the West equipped with a 6 x 7 medium format camera searching out subjects and location that would bring that desolate landscape to life. For several months he drove the empty highways of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California, transfixed by the vastness of a country saturated with light and color and energizedby the American cowboy mystique. This collection of lush, colorful photographs magnificently displays what Wenders’ practiced eye sought out: dramatic and visually arresting images, haunting vistas, and the poetic dilapidation of a country touched by man but ruled by nature.
Specifications - 23,5 x 25,5 cm. Hardcover.
Wim Wenders, who was born in Düsseldorf in 1945, is internationally renowned for his movies, such as “Wings of Desire”, “Pina” and “The Salt of the Earth”. But he acknowledges: “Photographic work is the other half of my life”. Unlike the film maker, the photographer Wenders dispenses with modern technological means. His photographs, which, in the truest sense of the word, he regards as an interaction of light (phos) and painting (graphein), are analogue creations, made without artificial lighting and without tripod. His images depict landscapes, more than often abandoned, bearing testimony to humanity without a single man present in them and engaging themes including memory, time, loss, nostalgia and movement.

The creator of some of the most popular, enduring images of late 20th-century art, Keith Haring was also an iconic figure of the downtown New York scene in the 80's.
Christina Clausen's documentary offers an affectionate, deeply personal glimpse into Haring's life, from his early years growing up in a small, conservative Pennsylvania town to his heyday as a world-renowned artist, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Madonna, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Grace Jones, Yoko Ono, among many others.
Lacking a formal narrative, Andy Warhol's art house classic follows various residents of the Chelsea Hotel in 1966 New York City, presented in a split screen with a single audio track in conjunction with one side of screen.
