He was the highly successful editor of Conde Nast House & Garden and has had the opportunity to work with the best local and international photographers - notably Fritz von der Schulenberg - as well as art directors and features writers to capture the outstanding interiors put together by interior designers such as Graham Viney, Stephen Falcke, Stefan Antoni and Boyd Ferguson, architects like Johann Slee and Silvio Rechs and inspired homemakers from Sandton to Graaff Reinet to Plettenberg Bay. Paul Duncan is now Head of Design, Menswear & Homeware at Woolworths and as involved with design and South African innovation as ever, with more books in the pipeline.
Reviews - What do customers think about Stanley Kubrick (Midsize)?
Nice piece of Information! Jan 1, 2004
This book is not a very orthodox look at kubrick's work,but you will have a nice read about his career early stage as a photographer. The author talks about how Kubrick made it all the way up to be one of the greatest (or the gratest?)filmakers ever,and also talks about each of his films with some interesting details and stories of the director,so give it a shot...you'll enjoy it!
Kubrick's career, in pictures Dec 14, 2003
This is a book-length essay on the films of Stanley Kubrick, accompanied by an enormous number of beautiful photographs. Most of the photos are stills from the films (as you might expect), but there are also quite a few shots of Kubrick at work. The examples of his work for Look magazine and stills from his first two movies are a nice touch.
The essay covers familiar ground for those who know his career: Growing up in New York playing chess and composing photographic essays, the early noir films, and then the classics: Lolita, Dr. Strangelove, 2001, The Shining, etc. The entire body of work is covered, including Eyes Wide Shut. The final pages feature promotional posters for half of the films and an extensive bibliography of books and articles for further reading.
If you're a Kubrick fan, you'll enjoy this. You won't learn anything new, but that's okay. If you aren't a fan, this book will make you want to see Kubrick's films --- the photos from the 2001 soundstages, in particular, will make you want to rediscover that film.
