Way before the advent of social networks, the first, and sometimes only, visual contact you may have had with a movie was its poster. To return to this enlightened approach and escape the hard selling, marketing campaigns of today's releases, this book pays tribute to the artists who celebrate the era when cinematographic posters made us dream. Presented by ARTtitude, this collaboration features the contemporary work of 58 different artists from the PosterSpy art community, one of the most influential groups devoted to alternative posters. The nearly 300 posters presented here cover a diverse range of genres and eras, from pop culture favorites like Star Wars and Goonies to the Wes Andersen filmography to horror and sci-fi classics. Each piece reveals intensely creative and detailed representations of films that ask the viewer to see the film in a new way and challenges the visual package included with the original release.
Hey, I'm Jack.

I’m a 25 year old photographer, cinematographer and creative.

My passion goes back to when I used to create small stop motion animations on my first ever phone. When I was 14 I was given a Fuji Bridge camera which I took to Japan and since then I’ve been into photography and video work.

Although my background is in design, I couldn’t stand A level design at school so I dropped that and took a media course. This is when I was exposed to the world of filmmaking

Throughout my work I try to keep one thing prevalent, beautiful imagery. There’s no set definition for what makes a beautiful shot, but I always aim to create one.

I shoot on two cameras, the Canon 5D Mark III for my photography and I shoot video on the Panasonic GH5.

I have a lot of experience with photo re-touching, colour grading and manipulation.
