A Short Film On Photography Featuring Juergen Teller, Petra Collins, Nobuyoshi Araki, And Arne Svenson


‘Reely and Truly’ is a new documentary from London-based photographer and director Tyrone Lebon. The 30-minute film honors the contemporary photographers, including Juergen Teller, Petra Collins, Nobuyoshi Araki, and Arne Svenson, analyzing their practices. The film has a free structure with an unconventional narrative, moving from one photographer to the next, all connected together by recorded conversations between the filmmaker and his father, fashion photographer Mark Lebon.

The film is shot on all available celluloid formats (including 65mm, 35mm, super 16mm, 16mm, and super 8mm). It is also a part of the ongoing ‘Reely and Truly’ Lebon's project which will complete in a book of photographs, texts and films about the practice of over 30 contemporary photographers and will be published by DoBeDo in late 2015. In conversation with Creative Review, he reveals that the project not only tested his eye but also his stamina and determination, admitting that photographers are an elusive breed. It required two years of inquiry, for instance, to get the ear of Teller, an artist whom he had revered since boyhood.

This project pays tribute to all the great artists and photojournalists, but at the end of the day, it's all about his creator. The effect and all the valued experiences, he has earned from this hard but exciting research.
