Just Like a Shadow
Jonas Mekas

Steidl, 2000  |  First edition
Hardcover, 224 pages, 210 x 280 mm
Condition: Fine

As editor of Film Culture and founder of the Anthology Film Archives, and through his own films, cult director and the godfather of American avant-garde cinema Jonas Mekas shaped an art form that had a wide influence on mainstream movies and video art. His own works are visual diaries in a staccato style, fully edited within the camera. This book consists solely of enlarged frames from Mekas's films, along with a brief interview in which the Lithuanian-born artist reflects on his career. Presented as static images, the frame blowups at times resemble fuzzier, less-evocative iterations of Cindy Sherman's pictures. There are numerous familiar faces repeated throughout - John and Yoko, Taylor Mead, Robert Frank, Salvador Dalí, and Andy Warhol.
