Taos, New Mexico: the lost album of Dennis Hopper | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Drugstore Camera feels like a stumbled-upon treasure, a disposable camera you forgot about and only just remembered to develop. Yet in this case the photographer is Dennis Hopper and the photographs are never before published. Shot in Taos, New Mexico, where Hopper was based following the production of Easy Rider in the late 60s, the series was taken with disposable cameras and developed in drugstore photo labs.

Eyes Wide Open: Profoundly intimate photographs from a young Stanley Kubrick

Eyes Wide Open: Profoundly intimate photographs from a young Stanley Kubrick | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Long before he became a renowned filmmaker, Stanley Kubrick was a wunderkind of photography. In 1945, at the age of 17, he started shooting photo essays for Look, one of America's highest-circulation general interest magazines. Over five years he completed more than 300 assignments, resulting in around 27,000 photographs. 
"Kubrick never separated the mediums of photography and film making," says Lisa Ortner-Kreil, curator of the photo exhibition "Eyes Wide Open: Stanley Kubrick as Photographer", which runs at the Bank Austria Kunstforum in Vienna until July 13. "He always thought of himself as an image developer and didn't mind whether he had a photo camera or a film camera in front of him."

15 Movies That Transformed Cinema In 1999

15 Movies That Transformed Cinema In 1999 | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

This year marks the 15th anniversary of one of the most important years in film. The year 1999 truly changed how movies are made and perceived. Twist endings, low-budget pseudo documentaries, classic book adaptations, darker-than-dark comedies, and that loathsome Jar Jar Binks character: 1999 had it all. Not since the summer of 1989 (Batman, Lethal Weapon 2, Ghostbusters 2, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) has a year been more fruitful and transformative at the box office.

MoMA celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Austrian Film Museum, Vienna, with a major collaborative exhibition exploring Vienna as a city both real and mythic in the history of cinema.

Book: Silver Screen by Tama Hochbaum published by Daylight | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Tama Hochbaum's mother came of age in the 1930s during the Golden Age of the Silver Screen. As a young woman, one of her favorite pastimes was going to the movies. During the last years of her life as she suffered from increasingly poor health with the onset of Alzheimer's, she found great comfort in watching re-broadcasts of the movies of her youth. Hochbaum cared for her mother with daily phone calls and visits as often as she could. Mother and daughter stayed connected by watching movies simultaneously on The Turner Classic Movies station that was on Channel 67 in both their neighborhoods Hochbaum's in North Carolina, her mother's in New York.

Stunning New Book Documents 100 Years Of Black Cinema In Posters | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Since 1973, cinephile John Duke Kisch has been documenting the evolution of African American film through a beloved, but sometimes overlooked medium -- movie posters. From "Siren of the Tropics," starring the inimitable Josephine Baker, to "Cotton Comes to Harlem," an Ossie Davis favorite, Kisch meticulously found and saved the stunning visual advertisements for films that adorned city streets and theater halls. Eventually, he amassed over 38,000 posters from 30 different countries, amounting to a massive visual history of Hollywood's relationship to race and representation.
