Full Description

The magnificent coffee table book Philip Glass – Dots on Paper by Andreas H. Bitesnich is about the life and work of the famous pianist. He is one of the most important pioneers of American minimal music and composed the film music for well-known films such as The Illusionist, The Truman Show, Fantastic Four and Cassandra’s Dream.
In 2010, the Austrian photographer Bitesnich met the composer Philip Glass together with the conductor and long-time friend Dennis Russel Davies and was immediately fascinated by the musician. A close friendship developed between the three. For five years he accompanied the composer on concerts and tours and recorded these journeys and performances in his photographs. During this time, he was also a guest in Glass’s private New York flat and was allowed to photograph the composer in his most private surroundings.
The result is an intimate portrait of Philip Glass as a musician, which is now available to all his admirers in this unique coffee table book.
The entire coffee table book is a real work of art. The format and cover are reminiscent of a record cover, the photographs used are mostly in black and white and technically perfect. You can feel the reverence that Bitesnich has for Glass speaking to the viewer from these pictures.
