Item description for Donata: Islands of Silence by Ulf Meyer zu Kuingdorf...
Although she has spent many years assisting her husband, filmmaker Wim Wenders, Donata Wenders is a celebrated photographer in her own right. Her access to some of the most important creative figures of our day---musicians, artists, actors, and dancers---has given her opportunities to catch her famous subjects in rare moments of unselfconsciousness. Presented in an elegant package that features a linen jacket and gold embossing, these sumptuous black-and-white images of celebrities and ordinary people illustrate moments of exquisite contemplation, which she likens to "islands of silence." Accompanied by essays from novelist Siri Hustvedt and critic Mark Gisbourne, these glimpses of everyday life remind us of the world we all inhabit, regardless of our fame.
