Newly available in paperback, this beautifully produced album is composed of sixty polaroid photographs drawn from a pool of about 200 taken by the great Russian film director in Russia and Italy between 1979 and 1984. The selection was made by Tarkovskys son and the renowned Italian photographer Giovanni Chiaramonte.
Andrei Tarkovsky, probably best-known for his 1972 film Solaris, is widely considered the finest film-maker Russia has ever produced. He died in 1986. Andrei A. Tarkovsky, born in 1970, is his son. Giovanni Chiaramonte is a distinguished Italian photographer. Tonino Guerra is a prolific Italian screenwriter and was a great friend of Tarkovsky, with whom he worked on Nostalghia.
