The work in this book is drawn from a project which cinematographer Peter Suschitzky has been working on for the past seven years, on and off between his activities in the film industry. Suschitzky decided to take up this project after years and years of photographing life all over the world. He wanted to find a theme which he could work on at home and in his own time. He knew that it would be hard to do anything original with the theme that he had chosen, as so many painters and photographers, great and small, have worked on this subject before him. Nevertheless he felt that he had to put his own imprint on the subject. Naked Reflections also includes a small but extremely fine selection of Suschitzky’s most important other work.

“In a hidden and cramped atelier in an unknown, possibly non-existent city, we discover naked women. The bodies of these women are palpable, humid, breathing. They are not abstract, not modern, they are real”…
Excerpt from text by David Cronenberg

Peter Suschitzky started his career as a cameraman at twenty-one, in documentary films destined for German television, in Latin America. When he returned to London, good fortune brought him his first feature film, aged twenty-two. Thereafter, Suschitzky’s luck endured and he has been the director of photography on around fifty films, including The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Star Wars Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back, Crash, Naked Lunch, A Dangerous Method, Cosmopolis, Mars Attacks, and Maps to the Stars. His most recent work can be admired in Tale of Tales, directed by Matteo Garrone. His many accolades include the New York critics award for cinematography (for John Boorman’s Where The Heart Is), the 2009 ISFF Manaki Brothers Life Achievement Award, and seven Genie awards for Best Cinematography, all of them for movies he shot with David Cronenberg.
