Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Mary Ellen Mark has worked on over a hundred film sets since 1968, including such legendary productions as Apocalypse Now, One Flew Over the Cuckoo s Nest and Gandhi,as well as recent Oscar-winning productions such as Moulin Rouge, Babel and Sweeney Todd, among many others. Mark s film photographs are a rare archive as she is afforded unprecedented access to the actors and the set permitted for weeks at a time to roam freely. Mark is one of the most talented photojournalists working today and her unique ability to capture gesture and expression enables her to fully reveal the story of life on set. In photographs that range from dramatic moments of Federico Fellini at work on on Satyricon, to the well-known pranksters Jack Nicholson and Dustin Hoffman fooling around on set, from Cate Blanchett and Brad Pitt rehearsing on set in Morocco for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu s Babel, to Johnny Depp in make-up for Tim Burton s Sweeney Todd, we are given access to unguarded moments in film-making and to this rarely-seen world. Some of the film industry s best-known figures have also contributed their own anecdotes of life on set including tales of growing up on set by Sofia Coppola, of the disconcerting experience of night shoots by Helen Mirren, and the work that goes into getting that take from Catch 22 director Mike Nichols. This is a backstage pass to the most famous film sets in history through the lens of an iconic photographer, sure to appeal to film and photography enthusiasts, or to anyone who ever wondered just what happens behind the scenes.

Synopsis : Since the 1960s Mary Ellen Mark has worked on over 100 film sets as a 'special stills photographer', making thousands of documentary photographs of life behind the scenes, rather than conventional still photographs made of actors on camera. This exciting new book presents the best of her images ranging from the first films that Mark shot in the 1960s, such as Fellini's Satyricon, to legendary 1970s productions like Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now and Milos Forman's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, as well as films from the ensuing decades, ranging from Network to Tootsie, from Gandhi to Showgirls. She continues to work on film sets and over the last decade has photographed recent Oscar-winning productions such as Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge, Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritú's Babel, and Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
Over her career, Mark has been given unprecedented access to the film sets she has worked on, roaming freely among cast and directors, and photographing in make-up, during rehearsals, on the set, and off the set to provide a full picture of life behind the scenes. Her experience over the last forty years reveals much about the changes in filmmaking. She recalls in her introduction how she loved to photograph the director's reaction and interaction during rehearsal when he was behind the camera; but now in contemporary filmmaking the director is nowhere near the camera, but rather in front of a video monitor away from the set. Her iconic 1960s portraits of Fellini behind his camera fix this moment in film history and are evidence of the changes in technology.
Mark's portraits from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s reveal the changing nature of celebrity. When she first started working, Mark would be just another person on the set with full access to every cast member. With the rise of the massive power and impact of celebrity, it has become much more difficult for photographers to work on sets, when actors are constantly surrounded by an entourage of publicists, agents, and assistants. Their schedules are carefully planned down to the minute, and it is harder for a photographer to gain access to them. Therefore, Mark's more recent candid photos of major celebrities, such as Cate Blanchett, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, and Nicole Kidman, are rare and particularly special.
Seen Behind the Scene includes beautiful and engaging portraits, documentary pictures that reveal the way a film is made, dramatic moments in direction, and amusing photos that reveal the camaraderie on set - such as Henry Fonda making faces behind Katharine Hepburn, well-known prankster Jack Nicholson turning Stockard Channing upside down, and Dustin Hoffman causing a lot of amusement in his female costume between scenes on the set of Tootsie.
The text for the book comes from a number of high profile actors, directors, and film industry professionals who complete this picture of life 'behind the scenes' by sharing their anecdotes and thoughts about their profession. Among these engaging texts, cinematographer Giuseppe Rotunno remembers how Fellini fled in fear of the white horse in Satyricon, Sofia Coppola recalls growing up on set with her father, and Helen Mirren eloquently describes the disconcerting experience of night shoots to complete this insight into the world of filmmaking.

About the Author: Acclaimed American documentary photographer Mary Ellen Mark (b. 1940) became well known after her photographs of Bombay brothels were published in 1981 in Falkland Road, a book that became legendary and confirmed her status as one of the most prominent and provocative documentary photographers working today. Her pictures are a celebration of humanity in its most diverse and eccentric forms - recurring themes include circuses, gypsy camps, children yearning for adulthood, the poor, and the destitute. Mark has the unique ability to capture gestures and expressions that translate the intense emotions of her subjects. She has received an impressive number of awards and grants for her works, including three National Endowment for the Arts grants, the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and five honorary doctorates. Mark has been photographing on film sets throughout her career and is afforded unprecedented access on film sets by the many directors who appreciate her work producing rare, behind-the-scenes images of some of the most famous figures in film history. She herself has drawing inspiration in her own work from many of the fine directors, set designers, cinematographers, and other crew she has watched - and photographed - at work. Mark lives in New York City
