160pp, 155 duotone illustrations. "Byways" is the first monograph on the photographic work of iconic Oscar-winning cinematographer Sir Roger A. Deakins. Beautifully designed and produced by Bologna's Damiani Editore, it presents one hundred and fifty-five previously unpublished black and white photographs spanning five decades, from 1971 to the present. After graduating from college, Deakins spent a year photographing life in Southwest England's rural North Devon on a commission for the Beaford Arts Centre. These images are gathered here for the first time and attest to a keenly ironic English sensibility, while also documenting a vanishing postwar Britain. A second suite of images expresses Deakins' love of the seaside. The book's third - and final - collection is of landscapes photographed all over the world while traveling for his cinematic work, in which that same irony remains evident"."Sir Roger Alexander Deakins CBE is an English cinematographer best known for his collaborations with directors such as the Coen Brothers, Sam Mendes, Martin Scorsese, Alex Cox, Frank Darabont, Denis Villeneuve, and more.
