Freeze Frame:

Society of Motion Picture Still Photographers

January 30th - February 23rd, 2003

Panel Discussion: February 8, 4pm

Freeze Frame is an extraordinary exhibit celebrating the artistry of those photographers working in the shadows who are nevertheless the ones responsible for summing up the memory of an entire motion picture in a single, commanding still photographic image.

Since the inception of the motion picture, still photographers have toiled in anonymity to capture a record of virtually every scene for historical as well as publicity purposes. More than a century later, the set photographer continues to play a vital role in front of and behind the cinematographer’s camera. Indeed, there are a number of movies that have been lost and the only evidence in existence are the stills.

Whether recording those special dramatic moments that happen on the set or making portraits that emphasize the magic of individual on-screen and off-screen talent, unit photographers must understand the ambitions of the film they chronicle and be ever alert to those photographic opportunities that distill the essence of a project into a form that stands by itself in testimony on the printed page.
