Studio: A Remembrance of Chris Marker
(50 items available)
Chris Marker (1921-2012) was a celebrated French documentary film director, writer and photographer, best known for his films La Jetee, A Grin Without a Cat and Sans Soleil. In this highly original book, Adam Bartos's exquisite photographs of Marker's studio, a workspace both extraordinarily cluttered and highly organised, appear alongside a moving reminiscence of his friend by the film theorist, Godard biographer and practitioner Colin MacCabe. The novelist and poet Ben Lerner provides a fulsome introduction to the work of Marker, Bartos and MacCabe. The physical structure of the book, incorporating an array of gatefold images, echoes Marker's own commitment to radical, innovative form. The result is a compelling homage to one of the most important and original talents in modern cinema.
