Full Description
Stories and photography intermingle on the pages of this gorgeous homage to '70s and '80s cinema and celebrity. Including rare and never-before-seen images, Through Her Lens is a wonderful collection of images and memoires that capture the spirit of the age. From unexpected late-night calls from Romy Schneider, to a stay at Paul Newman's home in Connecticut; from working on set with Bernardo Bertolucci, Werner Herzog, Steven Spielberg and Sydney Pollack, to lounging poolside with Raquel Welch; Sereny reveals her favorite moments from working behind the lens. This is the first photographic retrospective of Sereny's star-studded career, including nearly 100 never-before-seen images complemented by Eva's own stories.
About the Author
Eva Sereny started to pursue her career in photography in the late '60s and she quickly rose to prominence in her field, despite that photography was very much seen as a 'male' art. She shot the greatest stars of the day - Paul Newman, Marlon Brando, Jane Fonda, Robert Redford, Mia Farrow, and many more. Her work on film sets developed her passion for cinematic direction; her short film 'The Dress', starring Michael Palin, received the British Academy Award (BAFTA) and the Chicago Golden Plaque. Having her work featured on the covers of major magazines, such as The Sunday Times Magazine, Observer Magazine, Vogue, Elle, Paris Match, Harper's Bazaar, Time and Newsweek, Eva's credentials are as glittering as her photographs. Now retired and dividing her time between London, Rome and Sydney, Eva Sereny, in collaboration with Iconic Images, is proud to present Through Her Lens.
