Photography and film are very similar and complementary arts. A basic demonstration of this is the fact that there are no great films without a great director of photography!
With this collection in numbered limited edition, YellowKorner would like to showcase the world of cinema as seen through the lens of photographers.
Contrary to popular belief, photographers are not simply focused on taking portraits
of the greatest actors and directors of their day. They also capture their acting skills, the complexity of this profession that fuels so many dreams, and the ‘other side’ of Hollywood, behind the scenes.
Through this series, (re)discover the history
of cinema through its greatest films, from Kubrick to Tarantino, Audrey Hepburn to Brigitte Bardot, without forgetting the beautiful Marilyn Monroe.
