"James Dean 1955-∞"
The photobook includes still images from the sets of the movie “Giant” along with private scenes of James Dean with the photographer Sanford Roth and Dean in his beloved Porsche 550 Spider moments before the accident.
This photobook hopes to project what Dean, whose short filmography includes Hollywood classics like “East of Eden”, “Rebel without a cause” and “Giant” before tragically killed in a car accident at age 24, would have been like had he been alive today by comparing images from his prime and the role he had as a man in 50s in “Giant”.
By presenting all the contact prints viewers will witness the processes of how entire rolls of film had been exposed, thus know what was before and after the shots with worldwide recognition. This will bring an opportunity for fans of movie, Porsche and photography alike to explore new perspectives.
All 1600 photographs, from James Dean Archives: Seita Ohnishi Collection, have been digitally retouched and restored by a team of specialists over 3-year period.
