Donata Wenders has a new book.
Donata Wenders is the wife of director Wim Wenders (whose work I celebrate in Through a Screen Darkly).
And she Wenders has a new book of photography, arriving under the banner of a rave from that great photography critic we all know and love: Bono.
Transformation, transubstantiation: flesh somehow becomes spirit. Donata‚Äôs images feel eternal to me, like they were always going to happen. Observed, not posed. Poised for the next world, a better world, she brings that kind of vision to the here and now.
I learned this from the new Image Update, which has a review.
And here’s Donata’s website.
