Wenders, Wim


1st Edition
Soft cover

Square 4to. Laminated photographic wrappers. A little age-tanned. Unpaginated [xix pages introduction + 62 photographic prints, mainly printed on recto]. Introduction (an interview with Wim Wenders) in German. First paperback edition (1987). *** 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 energized by the American cowboy mystique. Even in the twentieth century, it was a landscape that had lost none of ist evocative, mythic power. 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.
