Finally films of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger reached Poland! 15th-22nd of November during Camerimage Festival we will be able to see those gems on a big screen. See us there as we will bring the book on Archers portraits!
This is the first of half dozen of photographs, which Fred Daniels selected as his finest works, which first appeared in ‘Tatler and Bystander’ magazine in 1949.
‘The ultimate test of a picture – he says – is can you live with it?’ For Fred Daniels it evoked ‘unforgettable moments of an autumn twilight in the woods’.
According to his words the finest picture shall possess ‘a sense of perspective, a feeling of tranquility mingled with feelings of mystery and enchantment’.
‘If a picture is capable of doing that for you it’s a very good picture…whoever made it’
Fred Daniels used Kodachrome color film at Pinewood Studios. The only surviving example is this portrait of Jean Colin from The Mikado 1939. Scanned from the original 10 x 8 transparency.
