Titel: Charlie Chaplin: A Photo Diary
This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: A few years ago, a sensational discovery was being made when, in Charlie Chaplin's estate, an extensive photo archive was found. It consists of thousands of glass-negatives, negatives and photoprints of Chaplin's life. Chaplin has documented his life with passionate enthusiasm: private photographs taken by his friends, his family and his children have been collected as well as "official" photographs made during shootings and work in the studios. So far, these photographs have never been published. From this tremendous find photographer Michel Comte has put together a sensitive album which shows a Charlie Chaplin hitherto unknown. Here, the trips around the world are in the fore, the "snapshots" with artist colleagues, persons in public life, with relatives, children and grandchildren. The large-format volume begins in 1909, and ends with a color photograph taken immediately prior to Chaplin's death on December 25th 1977. This book presents an artist who has been "acting" throughout his life, and who "has been in the limelight" in his private life, too. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_usedgood_3882437928
Inhaltsangabe: In 1999, a sensational discovery was made among the affects in the estate of Charlie Chaplin: an extensive photography archive consisting of thousands of of negatives and prints from the actor's life were discovered. Chaplin documented his life with a passionate enthusiasm: private photographs taken by his friends and family were collected and kept, along with more public photographs taken during the course of his career on movie sets and in studios. These are never-before-published images, and from this treasure trove the photographer Michel Comte has edited a sensitive photo album which shows a hitherto unknown Chaplin. Here, the trips around the world and the snapshots with colleagues, children, and grandchildren are brought to light; a new view of the iconic artist. The Unseen Chaplin presents an artist who was on stage throughout his life, whose private life as well as his public life was spent in the limelight. Opening in 1909, when he was 20 years old, and closing with a color photograph taken just prior to his death in 1977, this large-format volume, which includes an essay by Sophia Loren and statements by other friends from the film industry, will be a beautiful and fitting tribute to the life of one of the seminal entertainers in American history.
