Diary of a Set Designer
Diary of a Set Designer is a book of Polaroids that Happy Massee shot over a 25-year period, while travelling the world as a production designer. This photographic journal is a journey through time--a collection of images taken with the nowdefunct Polaroid camera, which at the time was as essential to the art of designing for film as was a measuring tape. The images of personalities, sets, locations, and encounters all tell a story related to Massee's work and travels and the people he met while on them. The images in this book, which was designed by Fabien Baron, are raw, unretouched, and candid and capture his art as well as his life.
