Product Information

"The authentic quality of witness that attends Marker's reflections and pronouncements in his cinematic work is evident in the two hundred photographs in this collection... Accompanied by text in Marker's inimitable voice, the collection stands as further testimony to his commitment to record not just social struggle but the poetry behind it." The New Yorker "What [these photographs] do demonstrate abundantly is Marker's endless curiosity about human (and animal) physiology, and the shy, seductive promise of what Buber called the I-Thou encounter."
