Byways is the first monograph by the legendary Oscar-winning cinematographer Sir Roger A Deakins, best known for his collaborations with directors such as the Coen brothers, Sam Mendes and Denis Villeneuve. Byways includes previously unpublished black-and-white photographs spanning five decades, from 1971 to the present.

After graduating from college Deakins spent a year photographing life in rural North Devon, in South West England, on a commission for the Beaford Arts Centre; these images are gathered here for the first time and attest to a keenly ironic English sensibility, also documenting a vanished postwar Britain. A second suite of images expresses Deakins’ love of the seaside. Traveling for his cinematic work has allowed Deakins to photograph landscapes all over the world; in this third group of images, that same irony remains evident.
 


Sir Roger Deakins (b. UK, 1949), CBE, ASC, BSC, is one of today’s most acclaimed cinematographers. Nominated for an Oscar 15 times, he has won the award twice for the films Blade Runner 2049 and 1917. He has been nominated 10 times for BAFTAs, winning five. Other Oscar nominations: Denis Villeneuve’s Prisoners; the Coen brothers’ Fargo; Martin Scorsese’s Kundun; Stephen Daldry’s The Reader; Sam Mendes’ Skyfall and Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, to name a few. His British colleagues have honored him with 11 nominations and 7 wins at British Society of Cinematographers (BSC) events. His countless career accolades also include two Independent Spirit Awards, numerous Critic’s Awards, and the Career Achievement Award from the National Board of Review. In 2020 he and his wife and collaborator James Ellis Deakins started a podcast called Team Deakins dedicated to the world of film. Byways (2021) is Roger Deakins’ first monograph and his photographs have been exhibited in US and Europe. In February 2022 he was knighted by Prince Charles for outstanding service to film.
