In the film, Pennies from Heaven, the production designers, brought to life several of Hopper's paintings. Based on a television play by Dennis Potter, Pennies from Heaven is a great example of a film loved by some and misunderstood (and hated) by most. Besides bringing to life Hopper's paintings, the film also draws on the photography of Walker Evans and others who invented the iconography of America in the 1930s.
As a photographer, I have always been drawn to the works of documentary photographers like Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Atget, and Arbus. I have also been drawn to the commercial works of Avedon, Bert Stern, Annie Leibowitz, Mary Ellen Marks, Karsh, and George Hurrell; photographers who tell a story.
Okay, I'm now in the mood to appreciate art...and maybe even a little commerce. More later. In the meantime, enjoy this music video, it's very artistic...Kylie Minogue - 'Come into my world' music video
