Vanity Fair on Hitchcock


Vanity Fair just recently printed a photographic (and textual) retrospective on Mr. Hitchcock's work, a pictorial series of stills representing some of the director's best known films reimagined and reshot with actors from today's Hollywood by photographers Art Streiber, Julian Broad, and Norman Jean Roy. The printed photos, which collected embody a beautiful revisualization of the included films, feature actors like James MacAvoy and Emile Hirsche in scenes like the dining-car conversation from Strangers on a Train (see included) and attempt to recast the Hitchcock allure onto those some of today's most prominent filmmakers. The series is a thoroughly enjoyable endeavor and a glad recommendation: do check it out (here).
