Hello everyone,

I'm a student of cinema from Iran and I'm working on a paper on the relationship between still photography and cinema.

 

I've read in an interview with Roger Deakins that Andrew Dominik had used a lot of reference still photographies for creating the atmosphere of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford .

However i cant find the names of any of these reference pictures that they've used for this film. Can anybody help me find them ? or link me to a site that has them?? i would appreciate it very much

Have you tried the ‘Getty’ library. There are thousands of photos pertaining to this period but there are also numorous fakes so it is difficult to know which ones are genuine.

The British library and Harvard archives have a very comprehensive collection of period photos but I assume you are trying to get actual copies which were used by researchers for the film. May I suggest you contact Andrew Dominik via Linekin and ask him where he got his photos.

Tracking down genuine photos is a time consuming job so be prepared for a long haul. Btw, I assume all you want to know is how accurate is the film against the original photos.
