'Byways' Book Signing with Oscar-Winning Cinematographer Sir Roger A. Deakins

Sunday, January 29 at 1PM PST, the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures presents Oscar-winning cinematographer Sir Roger A. Deakins signing his new book, Byways, published by Damiani Books. Purchase tickets here!

'Byways' Book Signing with Oscar-Winning Cinematographer Sir Roger A. Deakins

Byways is the first monograph by the legendary cinematographer, best known for his collaborations with directors such as the Coen brothers, Sam Mendes and Denis Villeneuve. Byways includes previously unpublished black-and-white photographs spanning five decades, from 1971 to the present.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 rural North Devon in South West England 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, and document a now-vanished postwar Britain. A second suite of images expresses Deakins’s love of the seaside. Traveling for his cinematic work has allowed Deakins to photograph landscapes all over the world; in this third group of images, that same irony remains evident.
