Polaroids from the set of Jim Jarmusch’s DOWN BY LAW
in honor of their new blu-ray of Down by Law (which is out today!), Criterion has posted a collection of Polaroids from the set, photos snapped by assistant cameraman Jack Anderson while Jarmusch was testing certain set-ups for the shoot. on the back of each Polaroid, Anderson jotted down all the pertinent camera details that Jarmusch would require for production: t-stops, lens types, focal distances, etc…
for what it’s worth, the blu-ray is gorgeous (black & white films tend to benefit most from these HD upgrades, at least to my eyes).
If you have been thinking about submitting a photo book for our blog, please send your submission soon. We need more books to keep this blog going for the rest of our goal of 200 Days. More info here about submitting. Thanks.
