Steven Spielberg (USA, b. 1946) was the boy wonder of the new Hollywood of the 1970s. Taking Orson Welles as his model, he made Duel aged only 25, following it up with a string of successes that brought him the adulation of the studios. As a fan of special effects, and entirely attuned to the shift towards younger film audiences, he took entertainment to new heights with films such as Jaws (1975), Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), ET (1982) and Jurassic Park (1993). His more recent incursions into science fiction (AI, 2001; Minority Report, 2002; War of the Worlds, 2005) and historical films (Schindler''s List, 1993; Saving Private Ryan, 1998; Munich, 2005) have brought him international critical recognition. He is also involved in production through his studio Dreamworks and is undoubtedly one of the most influential figures in contemporary film.

Pedro Almodovar (Spain, b. 1951) single-handedly represents the revival of Spanish cinema as part of the cultural flowering of the Movida Madrilena in the 1980s. New York was first to hail the unbridled imagination of this provocative director, whose films are filled with transsexuals, neurotics (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, 1988) and even drug-addicted nuns (The Law of Desire, 1987). In his maturity Almodovar has continued to draw inspiration from his underprivileged childhood in a remote corner of La Mancha, making melodramas bursting with heightened passions expressed by unforgettable actors such as Penelope Cruz (All About My Mother, 1999; Broken Embraces, 2009) and Gael Garcia Bernal (Bad Education, 2004).

Stanley Kubrick (USA, 1928-99) was a master who took the art of filmmaking further than any other contemporary director, a creative perfectionist whose work now fascinates new generations. He started out as a photographer before moving into film noir aged barely 25, after which the power and originality of his work soon brought him box-office success. In the 1960s he lived and worked in London, away from the scandal caused by his adaptation of Lolita (1962) and from the major studios, from which, uniquely, he was able to wrest total control of his films. He made only a dozen features in 50 years, each of which displays an extraordinary degree of technical and aesthetic invention. From the sci-fi 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) onwards, each of his masterpieces explores new genres and controversial topics, such as Vietnam (Full Metal Jacket, 1987), violence (A Clockwork Orange, 1971), horror (The Shining, 1980) and sexuality (Eyes Wide Shut, 1999).

Hendrick Beikirch, or ECB, is seeking to change our perception of what graffiti is or can be by extending its limits. ECB is a German painter working on large-scale black and white or grayscale murals in public spaces worldwide. This new book is a compilation of the artist''s work, and provides insight into that work through both interviews and photographs of his process and execution. ECB looks for new approaches and blurs the lines between fine art and graffiti. The scale of his outdoor murals does not take away from the familiarity created in his portraits, often of anonymous faces, making the work accessible to the masses. The astounding scale he works at is made evident in one of his best-known works, ''Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.'' Located in Busan, South Korea, the mural of a local fisherman is over 20 stories and measures 230 feet, making it Asia''s tallest mural. Photographs in the book show the work in progress, as well as its context situated against inspire him.

Live from New York, it''s Saturday Night! The complete history, on stage and behind the scenes On October 11, 1975 at 11:30 p.m., NBC viewers who tuned in to the network''s new late night show saw a sketch featuring John Belushi repeating, in a thick foreign accent, nonsensical phrases about wolverines being read to him by head writer Michael O''Donohue. Abruptly, O''Donohue clutched his heart and collapsed onto the floor. Belushi paused, raised his eyebrow, and then did the same. Posing as the stage manager, Chevy Chase entered the set and feigned confusion before breaking character and announcing to the camera: "Live from New York, it''s Saturday Night!" Now, as SNL celebrates its 40th anniversary, TASCHEN brings you the ultimate tribute to the show. To research this book, editor and author Alison Castle was given not only full access to SNL''s archives, but also the rare opportunity to watch the cast and crew at work.

Nicolai Howalt

In stock: In stock

Light Break takes, as its point of departure, the historical practice of medical phototherapy, which doctor and Nobel laureate Niels Ryberg Finsen (1860-1904) developed and practised in Denmark at the end of the nineteenth century. This involvement with medical history has led visual artist Nicolai Howalt into a field of photographic work where sunbeams hold central importance. In individual one-off photographic pieces, Howalt investigates and visualizes visible and invisible areas of the light spectrum, and the power of the life-giving as well as destructive radiation of sunlight. Inspired by Finsen''s method, and by making use of Finsen''s original coloured filters and lenses as well as contemporary coloured filters, Howalt was able to absorb select areas of light from the sun, allowing the remaining areas of the electromagnetic spectrum to pass through Finsen''s original rock crystal lenses onto photosensitive paper (C-print). This unique method of light exposure resulted in a series of original

When Aaron Huey first visited South Dakota''s Pine Ridge Reservation in 2005, he didn''t expect that it would be a world-altering experience. He began the project as an objective photojournalist''s look at poverty in America. But after spending eight years documenting the residents of Pine Ridge, his professional and personal outlook has changed dramatically. His book, Mitakuye Oyasin, which was published by Radius Books in July, is perhaps just the tip of the iceberg of Huey''s work with the Lakota. ''The whole book was almost more like a prayer or a poem than a documentary. It was like a ceremony, and I didn''t realize it until the end. I didn''t experience that place in a linear way and, at the end of the day, I didn''t want to put it together in that way,'' Huey said. ''It''s a big stack of images that a lot of people wish there was more explanation for and I didn''t want to give it. I didn''t want to walk everybody through every image.''
