James Dean. Dennis Stock
Stock captures the essence of James Dean in a stunning series of images of the actor with family, friends and colleagues as well as alone, reading, sleeping, lost in thought, in the frozen fields of Indiana, on a rainy day in Times Square. It was an extraordinary collaboration of two people, Stock and Dean, in full command of their talents, to the extent that the project and their friendship have been dramatized in a feature film, itself called Life, directed by Anton Corbijn and starring Robert Pattinson as Stock and Dane DeHaan as Dean.
These iconic photographs taken at the dawn and high noon of a brief and brilliant career are presented with Dennis Stocks original text and a later introduction by Joe Hyams, the author of the definitive biography of Dean.
