Chris Marker, who died in 2012 in his home city of Paris, was a celebrated writer, photographer and documentary film director. Best known for his films La Jetée, A Grin Without a Cat, and Sans Soleil, he was described by fellow filmmaker Alain Resnais as “the prototype of the twenty-first-century man.”

In this highly original homage, Adam Bartos’ exquisite photographs of Chris Marker’s studio, a workspace both extraordinarily cluttered and highly organized, appear alongside a moving reminiscence of his friend by the film theorist and practitioner Colin MacCabe. The physical structure of the book, incorporating a concertina of images, echoes Marker’s own commitment to radical, innovative form. The result is a compelling homage to one of the most important and original talents in modern cinema.
