Sandro : Raw
14 YEARS OF STEPPENWOLF /
One of today’s foremost photographers, and a master of portraiture, Sandro is internationally renowned for capturing expressive images over the past 30 years. We designed this 250-page limited edition, hardcover book to showcase his extensive body of work for the Tony Award-winning Steppenwolf Theatre Company.
“Raw” focuses on the purity of emotion. It is a meticulously composed ensemble of portraits supported with accents of Sandro’s process – including film strip edges and red grease pencil mark-ups. With the book’s primary focus on emotion, an inspiring introduction sets the stage with three retrospects written by each founder – juxtaposed with a combination of historical newspaper clippings.
The physical book reflects the volume of this collection. It is twelve by fifteen inches and two inches thick. It weighs roughly eleven pounds and is enclosed in a sturdy slipcase, wrapped in rich history. Each copy of this limited edition series includes a high-quality print and is signed by the artist.
