Wim Wenders, the distinguished filmmaker and co-founder of New German Cinema, is also a world-renowned photographer. He has exhibited his large-format, panoramic photographs in Paris, Hamburg, Berlin, Bilbao, Sydney, Shanghai, Rome, São Paulo, Moscow, Copenhagen, New York and Düsseldorf.
This book – published to accompany an exhibition at London’s Photographer’s Gallery – presents his polaroids. It is a photographic road trip through the life of the artist, from his early travels through America’s cinematic landscapes to the German provinces and beyond. The polaroids are accompanied by his own texts, short stories and haikus.
