A photojournalist with Magnum who traveled around the world, Eve Arnold also worked on the sets of more than 40 Hollywood movies. At the end of a session, Arnold always took a parting shot of the hands?and sometimes the feet?of her sitters, for luck and for her personal records. Beautifully presented in a board-bound album with a die-cut slipcase, here are portraits of such luminaries as Isabella Rossellini, Orson Welles, Marilyn Monroe, and Jimmy Stewart, with an unexpected focus away from their iconic faces. Here too are less famous hands, old and young, hands gripping guns and holding flowers, performing surgery and playing cards, painting, saluting, and blessing. N° de ref. de la librería 2698
Sinopsis: A gorgeous collection from one of the world's legendary photographers- capturing human hands in all their vitality.
At the end of a session, photographer Eve Arnold always took a parting shot of the hands -and sometimes the feet- of her sitters, for luck and for her personal records. Handbook with Footnotes brings together two hundred of these superb pictures.
A photojournalist who traveled around the world, Eve Arnold also worked on the sets of more than 40 Hollywood movies. These photographs, therefore, which span her career, include such luminaries as Isabella Rossellini, Orson Welles, Marilyn Monroe, and Jimmy Stewart, captured in unguarded moments and with an unexpected focus away from their famous faces. And yet the celebrity portraits are just some of the highlights in a far-ranging and deeply moving portrait of humanity. Here are old hands, young hands, hands gripping guns and holding flowers, performing surgery and playing cards, painting, saluting, and blessing.
With this beautifully produced book, Eve Arnold establishes herself once again as a major photographer of our time.
