BYWAYS. Photographs by Roger A Deakins
About this deal
To a lot of us aspiring cinematographers and filmmakers, he is a tremendous inspiration and influence. I feel like I’m starting from scratch and I can start a new chapter because the ones I’ve taken are in the book, and that’s it. Spanning five decades, the hardcover curated by Deakins and Damiani books is a snapshot of single frames from the beaches and coasts of England to field shots in Germany while on set. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. I like trying to do that in my photographs, and I think that is something I’m conscious of trying to do.
There’s just something about the simplicity of his paintings and the use of different elements that seem out of place with one another.His career accolades also include two Independent Spirit Awards, numerous critics’ awards, and the Career Achievement Award from the National Board of Review. I would go off by myself wandering around during the day with my camera and then at night I go in the darkroom when nobody was around, and had the best of both worlds. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Sometimes, I would drive at the same location and wait for a late day thunderstorm to produce the shot I’d pictured in my mind such as that of the lightning bolt.
There are the images that document a vanished postwar Britain, as well as a collection of photos that express his love of the seaside, and finally frames from around the world caught while traveling for his cinematic work.Throughout the extraordinary cinematographic career that followed, Deakins continued taking photographs as his passion for moving and still images grew. A note from FRAMES: if you have a forthcoming or recently published book of photography, please let us know. For many years, he has enjoyed capturing the serene beauty and rugged charm of coastal areas, mainly in his home county of Devon – a beloved place the now primarily LA-based cinematographer still visits when possible.
