403 Polaroids with 36 Stories 2017
Wim Wenders opens a treasure chest of Polaroids taken during the 1970s and 1980s. Here are portraits of friends, actors and personal heroes; souvenirs of places and events from the life of a young traveling filmmaker; impressions of his first trips to the US, shots of movie icons on American TV screens, the cinemas of provincial Germany in the 1970s, and much more. The adventure of shooting films around the world becomes an almanac of adventure, curiosity and tranquility.
Wenders‘ instant photographs are interwoven with his own stories, memories and flights of fancy that weave the images into an intimate and poetic journey. Instant Stories is a photographic road movie of the director’s early years.
Instant Stories is available in German (Schirmer/Mosel 2017), English (Schirmer/Mosel, Thames & Hudson 2017) and Italian (Jaca Book 2018).
