Description - Saved: My Picture World by Diane Keaton

A visual autobiography of a kind as only Diane Keaton could tell it, via the celebrated star's idiosyncratic and personal collections and ruminative texts, Saved offers an unprecedented glimpse into the mind of the legendary film star. The book begins with an homage to movies - curiously, to old b-grade horror flicks, such as Attack of the Puppet People - a passion that manifests in a collection of rare film stills showing large-brain aliens with crablike hands and terrified men with eyes growing from their shoulders. In a second chapter or collection, the reader encounters 'Cracked', a startling selection of crinkled and neglected negatives: found portraits that speak of the past through the broken lens of time. Even more intimately revealing are photographs taken by the star herself, be they of pigeons while on downtime from the set of Reds in London or of the 'greeters' of Hollywood Boulevard, caught at the other end of her Rolleiflex camera lens, now revealed as the seen, the experienced, the remembered, the cherished. But this is only the beginning, the surface of a very deep dive into the wellsprings of one of the great creative talents at work today. The book is an invitation to dive in.
