9780068815167: Past-Present

In Past/Present, accomplished writer, playwright, and artist Francois-Marie Banier turns his camera on celebrities and people in the streets, creating an extraordinary collection of photographs. Here are the famous and the unknown captured with an artist's eye and a writer's insight. Film directors from Satyajit Ray to John Huston have sat for him, as have writers such as Samuel Beckett and Louis Aragon. In extended photo essays, Banier's photographs reveal rare insight into the personalities of Vladimir Horowitz, Yves St. Laurent, Isabelle Adjani, Johnny Depp, and other well-known figures.

This photograph collection is destined to take its place next to Richard Avedon's Evidence and Alexander Liberman's Then/Now. Banier, 49 years old, half Hungarian and half Parisian, shows in this book thirty years of an obsession: to immortalize the beauty of time while observing its work, to answer the question he has already asked in his own novels. In Past Present, we see the breathtaking results of his unspoken dialogues with well-known personalities and enigmatic passersby, his record of the moment when the public mask fell away and the real self was revealed.

This photograph collection is destined to take its place next to Richard Avedon's Evidence and Alexander Liberman's Then/Now. Banier, 49 years old, half Hungarian and half Parisian, shows in this book thirty years of an obsession: to immortalize the beauty of time while observing its work, to answer the question he has already asked in his own novels. In Past Present, we see the breathtaking results of his unspoken dialogues with well-known personalities and enigmatic passersby, his record of the moment when the public mask fell away and the real self was revealed.

From the Author :

It's a wonderful gift when they finally accept to be themselves in front of the camera, when their eyes say, "Yes, I am like this." It is up to me to translate this into black and white.

An image is transformed by the various experiences which our eye and our memory impose on it every time we look at it. It is, for the imagination, both an end and a beginning. I write sometimes on my photographs to continue the dialogue. Photography: not to stop the world turning, as I once naively thought, but to find its center.
