After numerous years in the darkroom, Academy Award-winning cinematographer Sir Roger Deakins is, at last, showing his still photography to people in general. Reported through Instagram for Team Deakins, the podcast Deakins produces with his wife and associate, James Deakins, the productive cinematographer will publish a book of his still photography not long from now.
In the post, joined by a highly contrasting photograph of Deakins shooting a camera, it was uncovered that the book will range more than fifty years of photography, which has been “rarely shared” with people in general. Named Byways, the task is “something he’s always wanted to do”, having shot on film in the amazing number of areas he went to as a cinematographer.
Known for his work with movie producers like the Coen Brothers and Denis Villeneuve, Deakins has more than eighty cinematography credits to his name and has been accepted into both the American and British Society of Cinematographers. He has been selected for Academy Awards an incredible multiple times and won twice, accumulating honors for Best Cinematography for Blade Runner 2049 and 1917.
Pictures from the book have not yet been delivered, however, if Deakins’ vocation as a cinematographer is any sign, the work is set to be marvelous. With credits like The Shawshank Redemption, Skyfall, and A Beautiful Mind added to his repertoire, Deakins is no more interesting to the focal point of a camera or how to wonderfully control it.
