The great German film director Werner Herzog celebrated his 60th birthday in September 2002. This large-format volume provides an extensive appreciation of him in words and pictures. Swiss photographer Beat Presser worked together with Herzog and his favourite actor Klaus Kinski for many years. In 100 photographs that are in part spectacular he reveals the dynamism and rousing strenght of the great filmmaker. Companions like Volker Schlöndorff, Peter Berling, Herbert Achternbusch, Lena Herzog and Claudia Cardinale as well as Hans Helmut Prinzler provide their personal view of the Herzog phenomena. A Werner Herzog filmography together with a list of his opera productions rounds off the book.
With contributions by Herbert Achternbusch, Peter Berling, Claudia Cardinale, Lena Herzog, Werner Herzog, Hans Helmut Prinzler and Volker Schlöndorff.
