Deerfield, IL: Dalton Watson Fine Books, 2008. Signed Limited Edition. Hardcover. 12 X 9 1/4 Inches. 301 PP. Near Fine / Near Fine. Item #804
Signed Limited Edition in original issue "glossy" slipcase. Friedman is the only still photographer ever voted to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. His credits include: 'The Sound of Music', 'Doctor Doolittle', 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid', 'Enter the Dragon', 'King Kong', 'Carrie' and 'Grease' among many others. It is the 1980s shots of partiular interest to me of course. Friedman is notably the man behind the still shots used in much of the advertising and promotion for the Rambo films as well as Rocky IV (THE CLASSIC STALLONE SHOTS WITH THE AMERICAN FLAG AFTER HIS DEFEAT OF IVAN DRAGO) and Total Recall.
The work of Dave Friedman is one of the cases where everyone knows the photos, but few look past what they see to discover the origins and/or the creator. Dave holds a special place here at Back in Time and we are always looking for examples of his work. NOTE: THIS IS A HEAVY BOOK AND WILL REQUIRE ADDITIONAL POSTAGE.
