BLOW-UP: ANTONIONI'S CLASSIC FILM AND PHOTOGRAPHY
Hatje Cantz, 2014, First edition. 277 pp., 9 1/4" X 11 1/2"
This publication examines "Blow Up" from a photographic perspective, investigating in detail the photographic and art historical stances presented in the film as well as the genres it represents. The stylistic devices discussed range from social reportage, fashion photography and pop art to abstract photography - and how, incidentally, Antonioni discovers soft focus as an artistic device.
