Group Editor and Art Direction

world-film-locations

The city continues to play a central role in a multitude of films, helping us to frame our understanding of place and of the world around us. Whether as elaborate directorial loveletters or as time specific cultural settings, the city acts as a vital character in helping to tell a story and these are the issues that have prompted the creation of the World Film Locations book series. Each book explores and reveals the relationship between the city and cinema with short bite-sized texts about carefully chosen film scenes, illustrated throughout with evocative movie stills and complimented by short but insightful essays about themes, ideas and key historical periods relating to each individual city.

The trees are a visible testament to the moment they were struck, an instant frozen in time.
