About the Book
My interest in photography, paradoxically perhaps, grew from my love of the cinema. I’ve been long enamored with the films of Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch, Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles—among countless others. The cinematography of Gordon Willis—particularly on The Godfather and Manhattan—was my first realization in the artistic importance of lens-work. I’ve tried to channel this inspiration with Traumnovelle, to present images with a cinematic flavor, and that tell a story—or rather where each images tells the single frame of a much larger story.
