Images shows the progression of Lynch's avant-garde style of filmmaking - from his very first short films, to his status as the ultimate cult director with Eraserhead, to the commercial successes of The Elephant Man and Blue Velvet and the creation of his television series Twin Peaks, which made it into - and forever altered - the mainstream. Here are many familiar scenes: the gas-masked Dennis Hopper in Blue Velvet, the squalling baby from Eraserhead, Dune's octopus-faced interstellar navigators, Nicholas Cage singing "Love Me Tender" to Laura Dern in Wild at Heart, and Kyle MacLachlan as FBI agent Dale Cooper. Much of the book, however, is composed of the images Lynch has kept to himself, and these are as fascinating and possibly more bizarre than any of his films. In addition to the stills from his movies, TV series, and theater work, are private, personal, never-before-seen paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography, short works of fiction, and organic art. This is the artwork David creates for himself and his closest friends: photographs of his unusual obsessions from spark plugs and industrial wastelands to dental surgery and bald women, suburban snowmen, and biological artwork, such as "The Fish Kit".

About the author (1994)

Three-time Oscar-nominated director David Lynch is among the leading filmmakers of our era. From the early seventies to the present day, Lynch's popular and critically acclaimed film projects, which include "Eraserhead," "The Elephant Man," "Wild at Heart," "Twin Peaks," "Blue Velvet," and "Mulholland Drive," are internationally considered to have broken down the wall between art-house cinema and Hollywood moviemaking.
