Following the success of The Drowned Man, Punchdrunk have announced the publication of their first ever book – a coffee table sized collection of previously unseen photography by Julian Abrams which captures the world of the show and its inhabitants. Take a look at a selection of images below (click picture to enlarge).
The Drowned Man, which is Punchdrunk’s biggest show to date, was seen by over 200,000 people during its year long run. Inspired by Büchner's fractured masterpiece Woyzeck, the production took place in a vast building in Paddington transformed into a seedy Hollywood underworld filled with dreamers from the fringes of the movie industry.
Published to create a lasting memory of Temple Studios, the new hardback book, which will be 330mm x 280mm, will feature over 130 full colour and never before published photographs taken in the final few months before the doors of the studios closed forever. It will be released in June as a Limited First Edition print run to mark the anniversary of the show.
The book is priced £49 + delivery – and as a self-published title, is available to buy at www.tdmbook.bigcartel.com.
