Вим Вендерс — выдающийся немецкий режиссер, обладатель многочисленных призов главных кинофестивалей мира, автор знаменитого «Неба над Берлином» и многих других художественных фильмов, принесших Вендерсу мировую известность.

С середины 80-х он начинает параллельно снимать оригинальную этнографическую документалистику, увлекаться фотографией и продюсировать множество крупных международных проектов.

В течение многих лет старая панорамная камера сопровождает его во многочисленных путешествиях по миру и во время съемок. В итоге он собирает все эти фотографии в одной книге «Картины с поверхности Земли».

Его пейзажи просто гениальны -  пустыни и горные цепи, улицы Гаваны, Хьюстона, Техаса, Берлина, Иерусалима - все они пронизаны тишиной, молчанием и невероятным спокойствием.

К сожалению, в интернете нигде невозможно найти эти фотографии в нормальном размере, за что извиняюсь, просто очень хочу поделиться тем, что есть. Официальный сайт - http://www.wim-wenders.com/photography/photography.htm

At The Horizon: The Rocky Mountains, Montana

Summers are short in Montana
and the sky bigger than anywhere else.
Those hay rolls looked like pawns in a giant chess game.

Havana From Across The Bay

Taking the tunnel under the river
and coming out on the other side,
you were in a different world.
Havana was an apparition
out of the future
of her own past.

"Safeway", Corpus Christi, Texas

A few moments ago,
someone probably stood on the yellow step
in front of that door,
smoked a cigarette,
flipped the butt into the hot street
and went back to work inside.
Behind the wall and its promise
of a safe way,
it was certainly nice and cool.

"Blue Range", Butte, Montana

I found out later
that this building had once been a brothel.
A red light district
to really get the blues...

Joshua And John (Behind), Odessa, Texas

I can guess
how the wives
of the drivers 
of the busses
of the Calgary Baptist Church
in Odessa, Texas
called their husbands
when they came home from work.

Indian Cemetery In Montana

The wooden church next to the Indian Cemetery 
was all boarded up.
I walked around for an hour 
and read all the names on the graves.
Some of the men had died in the Vietnam war.
Travelling Wolf had died before.
According to the cross on his grave
he was 22 years old,
when Edward Curtis photographed the Blackfeet Indians
in this part of Montana, in the year 1900.

Lake Galilee Before Sunrise

Every now and then a fish jumped up.
Birds were flying by in the far distance.
Nothing had changed, it seemed, 
on Lake Galilee,
since Jesus had stopped here one morning,
two thousand years ago...

"Entire Family", Las Vegas, New Mexico

Houses have faces
and characters,
like people.
This one, with the wrinkles on its forehead,
made me laugh and feel sad
at the same time.

The Road To Emmaus, Near Jerusalem

Dust Road in West Australia

I remember the name of the deserted farm
this dust road was leading to:
"Gordon Downs".
There was a tennis court in the overgrown garden,
and it was still fenced.
Birch trees were growing out of its red clay,
and birds were nesting on the umpire's chair.

"Entrance", Houston, Texas

Why do so many parking structures
look so ugly,
if they can look so perfect, too?

Street Front In Butte, Montana

Early morning,
not a soul on the streets of Butte, Montana.
It was as if I had walked into my favorite painting 
of Edward Hopper:
"Early Sunday Morning", painted in 1930.
It was Sunday, indeed.

After A "Tote Hosen" Concert At The Westfalen Stadium, Dortmund

With all that loud music still ringing in my ears,
the shouts and the hammering
of the roadies disassembling the stage
seemed muted,
like an eerie silence,
forever the soundtrack to this picture.

You couldn't buy much in the groceries,
neither in Havana, nor in the country shops
on the other side of the bay.
Food was difficult to find, especially vegetables.
On the other hand: I never saw a beggar...
