BOOK SPOTLIGHT: Jeff Bridges: Pictures Volume Two
powerhouse books
Apr 7, 2020
Taking pictures of coworkers on the job results in compelling photographs, especially when those people include the likes of Meryl Streep, Robert Duvall, Julianne Moore, Olivia Wilde, and Matt Damon, among others. Unique photos from his earlier work were first shared in Pictures: Jeff Bridges (powerHouse Books, 2003). Now, drawing on his most recent film work, Jeff Bridges: Pictures Volume 2 expands on Bridges’ intimate vision of Hollywood behind-the-scenes. Included within are rare looks at the famed actors, top directors, talented costumers and makeup artists, skilled and creative set and art decoration, and the rest of the passionate crews involved in such memorable movies as True Grit, Crazy Heart, The Giver, TRON: Legacy, and Hell or High Water. Together, these pictures provide glimpses of the art, craft, and sleight of hand behind the magic of motion pictures. Jeff Bridges: Pictures Volume 2 also celebrates Bridges’ mastery of the special effects made possible with the distinctive Widelux panoramic camera.

Bridges’ proceeds from Jeff Bridges: Pictures Volume 2 will be donated to the Motion Picture & Television Fund, a nonprofit organization that offers charitable care and support to film-industry workers.

Academy Award-winning actor Jeff Bridges is widely adored as a jewel of American cinema, with dozens of leading credits to his name. For more than 30 years, on numerous film sets, Bridges, with his specialized panoramic camera, a Widelux F8, has captured behind-the-scenes views of the creative world of moviemaking. Now, 16 years since his first collection of photography, comes Volume Two.
