Overview


Magnum Photos and the Cinematheque Francaise sent 10 photographers to the movies and asked them to create original work in response to the oeuvre of a film director who has influenced their vision. In carrying out the assignment, Abbas, Antoine D'Agata, Bruce Gilden, Harry Gruyaert, Gueorgui Pinkhassov, Gilles Peress, Mark Power, Alec Soth, Donovan Wylie and Patrick Zachmann have set out to absorb all the mixed media that differentiates the moving image from their own intensely distilled single frames: Beyond prints, projections and film stills, they consider audio-visual material, written notes, soundtracks, and publications, each in his own way exploring the domain of the visible. Among their subjects: Pinkhassov looks at Andrei Tarkovski, Gruyaert at Michelangelo Antonioni, Abbas at Roberto Rossellini, Power at Krzysztof Kieslowski, Soth at Wim Wenders and Gilden more broadly at film noir from the 40s and 50s.

He is the recipient of major fellowships from the McKnight and Jerome Foundations, and was awarded the 2003 Santa Fe Prize for Photography. His photographs are represented in major public collections including The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Museum of Fine Arts Houston and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions worldwide. Soth's widely acclaimed first monograph, Sleeping by the Mississippi, was published by Steidl in 2004, followed by Niagara and Dog Days Bogota in 2006 and 2007 respectively. Soth is represented by Gagosian Gallery in New York and Weinstein Gallery in Minneapolis. He is an associate photographer with Magnum Photos.

Donovan Wylie was born in Belfast in 1971. A photographer and filmmaker, his books include The Dispossessed, Notes from Moscow, and Losing Ground. In 2002 he won a BAFTA award for The Train, his television documentary on religion in the former Soviet Union. In 1992, he became the youngest photographer to join Magnum.

Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1946, Magnum photographer Bruce Gilden began exhibiting in 1971 and has since shown his work in galleries and museums the world over. He has received numerous grants and awards including three National Endowments for the Arts Fellowships, a Villa Medicis Hors les Murs, a New York State Foundation for the Arts Grant, the European Award for Photography, and a Japan Foundation Fellowship.
