About this item

Film stills represent both visual traces of film and their own type of photographic image. They are taken on set during filming by specially commissioned photographers in accordance with a complicated and elaborate procedure, re-staging film scenes specifically for the still camera, transforming film from a moving to a static medium. This book is turning the spotlight on this hybrid genre in a comprehensive presentation. Conventionally (mis)understood as mere references to the film, reflecting the cinematographer's or the director's view, here film stills are explored as an autonomous photographic genre, requiring to be considered independently from the film itself.
