The Archers: Powell and Pressburger Portraits/Portrety Fred Daniels
The Archers: Powell and Pressburger Portraits/Portrety Fred Daniels by Nigel Arthur & Ewe Reeves is the first monograph on artist and photographer Fred Daniels who studied art in Paris where he met Auguste Rodin and Scottish colourist J. D. Fergusson. One of his first photographic commissions was from Fergusson's wife the prominent dancer Margaret Morris who was a contemporary of Isadora Duncan.
These images captured the imagination and notice of 'Vogue' magazine and admired for the way Daniels created form and movement with a plate camera. This made him an ideal candidate for stills photography in the film industry. Fred Daniels was noticed by E. A. Dupont who signed up Fred Daniels as the stills photographer on 'Piccadilly' (1929)
