Review Text

Como fotógrafo especial en los platós y los exteriores de la trilogía El Padrino de Francis Ford Coppola, Steve Schapiro tuvo la oportunidad excepcional de presenciar el trabajo de actores legendarios en algunas de sus interpretaciones más memorables. Schapiro inmortalizó a Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, James Caan, Robert Duvall y Diane Keaton en fotos que desde entonces se han convertido en imágenes emblemáticas, reconocibles al instante e imitadas hasta la saciedad. Reunidas por primera vez en este libro están las mejores fotografías de Schapiro de las tres películas de El Padrino, cuidadosamente reproducidas a partir de los negativos originales. Con ensayos y entrevistas que cubren la trilogía en su integridad, este libro contiene más de 400 imágenes a color y en blanco y negro.Las imágenes de Schapiro nos llevan tras las escenas de esta épica e inimitable saga cinematográfica, revelando el proceso de trabajo del director, captando las atmósferas y las personalidades involucradas y proporcionando interioridades de cómo se hacía la historia del cine.
