Publisher's Description
In early 1972, Swiss filmmaker Iwan Schumacher (b. 1947) bought a Canon half-frame camera while teaching photography at an art school in South London. The small camera accompanied him everywhere he went for a year, resulting in a visual diary which strangely anticipates the way we take cell phone pictures today. His subjects include portraits of young friends and co-workers whose moods see-saw between elation and melancholy, a mother with her children and a portrait of Alfred Hitchcock along with dreamlike landscapes and light abstractions seen through car or train windows. Schumacher takes us on a very personal visual journey through his 124 pictures edited from the 3,000 images recorded throughout 1972. Ironically, after that year, he abandoned photography for a career in filmmaking. Schumachers early use of filmic sequencing engages the viewer in a very personal narrative of moments and memories frozen in time.
