About Bright, Bright Day
This is a book of previously unseen photographs by the legendary Russian filmmaker Andrey Tarkovsky (1932 – 1986). The focus of the book is an array of unseen Polaroids from the Florence based Tarkovsky Foundation. This is maintained by the filmmaker’s son. Taken in Russia and Italy between 1979 and 1984, the photographs range from romantic landscapes and studied portraits then to private shots of the auteur’s family and friends. Also including the distinguished scriptwriter Tonino Guerra.
They demonstrate the singular compositional and visual poetic ability of this master image maker. Many of the Polaroids created in Russia complement and also extend the personal imagery of the film Mirror (1974). Equally rewarding cross fertilization is apparent in other images. Such as those from Italy while he was travelling with Tonino Guerra and preparing Nostalgia (1983).
Tarkovsky is considered by many to be one of the greatest filmmakers the world has ever seen. Although he made just eight feature films before his life was tragically cut short by cancer, at the age of 54, each is an artistic masterpiece and a major landmark in world cinema.
