Open Road by Wim Wenders
• The Open Road by Wim Wenders
Stunning landscapes by Wim Wenders, with the US views, Germany, Cuba, Japan, Canada, Israel, and not only reveal his preferences similar to those that find reflection in his films - the spirit of a traveler with a thirst new anguish and mythology, which inspires open road. Photos convey a sense of awe before the desert panoramic scenery. In the book "4 Real & True 2!" Wenders, we can see his passion for the borders and their displacement (there are a few shots the GDR and the Golan Heights). Also there is the memory of the tragedy of 9/11 (photo taken in November 2001, on the spot analysis of blockages in the area of Ground Zero, it looks like a scene from Postapokaliptika). And, like Wenders' films, we see his tenacious gaze of the artist: a chain of shop windows in the town of Butte, Montana - Wenders writes - "looks like as if I was walking on my favorite picture," Early Sunday morning, "Edward Hopper; Photo "Landscape Wyatt," rich in gold and gray tones, could be one of the animated pictures of Andrew Wyeth. In his explanations in a new book, Wenders, first of all, emphasizes the role of the art of photography as a defender of reality "from the hurricane a virtual second-hand": You can believe my eyes when I look out of the window in the morning and find out:
This way, this garden, the skyscraper, all they exist, they're just like me!
You'll be able to look at all this with the same confidence.
