Jean-Paul Deridder Cinema Jean-Paul Deridder (*1963) lives in Brussels. 1984–88: Studied at the Ecole de Recherche Graphique, Brussels. 1990–92: Studied at Stichting Ateliers '63, Haarlem. 2002: Grant from the State of North Rhine-Westphalia in Düsseldorf. The transition from analogue to digital film projection is one of the main issues facing cinemas today. Between 2002 and 2007, Jean-Paul Deridder visited various cinemas in the Rhineland and Belgium, taking large-format photographs of projectionists at their projectors, and of the auditoriums themselves. The Belgian photographer’s Cinema series offers us an alternative view of the history of the movie theater—a history seen through the eyes of the projectionists, whose era will soon be superceded by that of digitalization. Our Collector’s Editions will excite anyone with an interest in film. The pictures of the Odeon in Cologne and the Metropol in Bonn convey Jean-Paul Deridder’s fascination for the world of cinema beyond the silver screen, a passion which allowed him to capture the personal relationship between the projectionist, the film itself, and the projectors they use every day. As Jeffrey Vanhille of the Cinema Lumière in Bruges put it: “The moment the film starts . . . you get goose bumps; that’s still the magic of it.” Delivery on receipt of payment, including delivery charges, which may be made by invoice or credit card.
