Description
Wim Wenders (born 1945) started taking photographs at the age of 7. By the age of 12 he had equipped himself with his own darkroom, and by 17 he had acquired his first Leica. A few years later he was to emerge as a leading light in the New German Cinema movement of the late 1960s, making his feature-length directorial debut with "Summer in the City" (1970). Throughout his subsequent global acclaim as a director, Wenders has doggedly maintained his life as a photographer. In fact, the two careers have served each other well, as many of his photographs are created while location-scouting for films. His image repertoire of neglected industrial buildings, vacant lots, cemeteries, dilapidated urban niches and courtyards expresses a mixture of bemusement, melancholy and dislocation. "When you travel a lot, and when you love to just wander around and get lost, you can end up in the strangest spots," Wenders says. "It must be some sort of built-in radar that often directs me to places that are strangely quiet, or quietly strange." These strange and quiet color photographs are accompanied by poetic captions, some of which elucidate what is depicted while others lightly supplement with an anecdote. This new edition of "Places, Strange and Quiet "features seven new photographs taken in Germany and Fukushima as well as an essay by Wenders on analogue and digital photography.
