Wim Wenders. Pictures from the Surface of the Earth

Including insightful quotes from Wenders, and writing that explores the nature of vision from childhood to adulthood and the component categories of the photographer’s eye. Wenders’ use of an old panorama camera is testament to his desire to replicate a more authentic image undisturbed by digital manipulation and tampering. And yet, this book still engages with the question of reproduction, imitation, sincerity and perception. Multiple images highlight the ‘angle’ of the viewer, and the way in which land and cityscapes infer various experiences. An extremely touching compilation of philosophical and photographical contemplations accompanied by the striking trademark colours and compositions mastered by Wenders.
