About the Author
About the editors:
Paul Duncan has seen lots of films and read lots of comics and books. He wanted to share his enthusiasm for these subjects so he published magazines about comics (Ark) and crime fiction (Crime Time) before launching a series of small film guides (Pocket Essentials). He has edited more than 40 film books for TASCHEN, and wrote Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick in the Film Series.
Bengt Wanselius was a freelance photojournalist for every major magazine and publishing house in Scandinavia from 1967 to 1985, his assignments taking him to war-stricken areas of the Middle East and other places of unrest or revolution in Yugoslavia, Nicaragua, Haiti, and Cuba. Equally at home doing advertising for Unilever, Kodak, and Ericsson, or taking stills for film directors Bille August, Bo Widerberg and Liv Ullmann, he splits his time between TV, dance, theater, and book assignments. He spent 15 years as the house photographer at the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm, recording the work of internationally well-known theatre directors such as Arthur Miller, Andrzej Wajda, Robert Lepage, and Ingmar Bergman. His long collaboration on 20 productions with Bergman ranged from theater and opera to television, creating a unique photographic documentary of Bergman's works.
