Foreword by John Carpenter.
Introduction by Tony Timpone.
John Carpenter’s producing partner Debra Hill hired photographer Kim Gottlieb-Walker to be the unit photographer on Halloween, and Kim soon became part of Carpenter’s filmmaking family, going on to shoot stills on the sets of some of his most iconic films:
Escape from New York
Stephen Kings Christine
Collected together here for the first time is the best of that on-set photography, with iconic, rare, and previously unseen images. All accompanied by exclusive commentary from those involved, including John Carpenter himself, and other key crew and cast.
From production stills, to candids of the stars between takes, and the crew in action, alongside portrait shots of the actors who would eagerly pose for Kim, this book gives an unprecedented glimpse into the action on set with John Carpenter.
The pictures are taken from the collection of Kim Gottlieb-Walker, who served as Carpenter's official photograph on the set of some of his most influential movies. The pictures are accompanied by insight from Carpenter himself and many of the cast and crew involved.
