Pressestimmen

?When The Police toured in the early ?80s, the band brought a photographer to capture the excitement?he also happened to be the band's guitarist. Somewhere between photojournalism and an illustrated diary, the book's photos capture not just the proverbial sex, drugs, and rock and roll, but fans, landscapes, still lifes and occasional passers-by. A must-have for fans of The Police and photography alike.?

Synopsis

In the early 1980s, The Police went on tour accompanied by a photographer who documented the band behind the scenes in a series of candid and striking black and white photos. This talented photographer also happened to be the band's guitarist, Andy Summers. Yes, it's true - the man responsible for the guitar lick from "Every Breath You Take" was not only the backbone of one of the most popular bands of all time, he also possessed a visual gift for composition and mood that allowed him to capture the spirit of The Police better than anyone else could have. This book, somewhere between photojournalism and an illustrated diary, follows The Police around the globe between 1980 and 1983. From the American West to Australia to Japan, Summers recorded not only the band members rehearsing and partying - the proverbial sex, drugs, and rock and roll - he also photographed fans, landscapes, still lifes, and passersby in a reportage style reminiscent of Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank. Containing over 600 photos and filled with diary-style entries, "I'll Be Watching You" is a sumptuous volume beating with musical energy, nostalgia, and atmospheric beauty.

It is a must for photo buffs and Police fans alike.

Wow, Andy Summers Fotoband ist ein Juwel!
Ich habe das Buch ausgepackt und sofort in einem durch verschlungen bzw. die Eindrücke in mich aufgesaugt. Summers hat ein Auge für stilvolle Bilder und witzige Schnappschüsse und seine Zeit mit/in The Police gab ihm reichlich Gelegenheit für einmalige Aufnahmen:

Alle drei Police-Jungs haben eine enorme Ausstrahlung, die in den Fotos gut eingefangen wird und der man sich als Betrachter einfach nicht entziehen kann. Dazu kommen wunderschöne Landschaftsaufnahmen, interessante Einblicke in fremde Städte und andere Kulturen und ein Überblick über das Tour-Leben (erstaunlicherweise sehen die Hotelzimmer und Dressing Rooms immer sehr bescheiden aus, obwohl Andy erst mit dem Fotografieren anfing, als The Police bereits berühmt und (erfolg)reich waren).

Man hat das Gefühl, man ist selbst dabei, wenn Andy die Stille während seinem Morgenkaffee genießt, Stewart zu jeder Tageszeit auf seinem neuerworbenen Banjo spielt oder Sting sich die Zeit mit einem alten, abgegriffenen Taschenbuch vertreibt.

Die Fotos werden durch Tagebucheintragungen von Summers ergänzt, die sich teilweise wie ein oberflächlicher Reiseführer lesen, dann wieder sehr intime Einblicke in die Seele des Musikers geben.
Die Texte sind neben Englisch übrigens auch in Deutsch und Französisch abgedruckt, wobei man sagen muss, dass die deutsche Übersetzung leider sehr wortwörtlich und teilweise auch einfach falsch ausfällt. Andy's "every night the same old tele..." wird zB mit "jede Nacht der gleiche alte Fernseher" übersetzt - ich bin selbst kein Musiker, aber ich bin ziemlich sicher, dass Andy mit "tele" seine Gitarre gemeint hat.

You Gotta Be a Fan for This One 22. August 2008
Von Timothy Haugh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The Police were far and away my favorite band when I was growing up. I recently had a chance to see the last show in their reunion tour at Madison Square Garden, which reminded me again how each of the three members of the group are excellent musicians in their own right. Sting may have had more fame in the intervening years, but Stewart Copeland's drumming is magnificent to behold and Andy Summer's guitar work help define the sound of the band. There is nothing like the three of them together.

So, sitting in the middle of this perfect storm of nostalgia, I decided to take a look at this collection of Mr. Summers' photographs so I could spend some more time in those early years of the `80's. A couple years back, I had read Mr. Summers' autobiography, One Train Later, and enjoyed it quite a lot. I am also familiar with his other photo collection, Throb, which I also liked. Unfortunately, this book didn't quite live up to either of those.

In some ways, this book is a strange amalgamation of those other two books. There are a number of brief informational/autobiographical blurbs with the photos. But the blurbs don't really tell us much and, in the end, neither do the photos. Unlike photos designed to stand alone as art, these are meant to tell a story but, in the end, they don't seem to do that. Certainly, for someone not interested in or somewhat knowledgeable about the band, they would say almost nothing.

Still, there are some good shots here. It's clear to see that Mr. Summers is at the beginning of developing a real talent. I particularly liked the wide shots of some of the arenas they played and Andy's more "private" hotel room pictures. But you have to sift through a lot of stuff to find those jewels. For someone not really invested in the band, it would be too much work.

Crashingly good! 2. November 2007
Von P. Swindells - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A very well put together coffee table tome. Stunning photographs of one of the best 70's- 80's iconic bands. Well worth every penny of my hard earned cash, a joy to look at from cover to cover or just merely dip into in an add hoc way. Well recommended for any fan of the band or from a photographers standpoint. Seriously good reportage style of photography.

On the outside looking in... 15. Oktober 2007
Von Karen J. Brady - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Andy Summers is more than a brilliant guitarist. He's an amazing photographer. His technique is very "shoot at the hip" and really gives people a birds-eye look into The Police during the high point of their career. His pictures are beyond beautiful. They are intimate portraits with small journal excerpts that describe feelings and emotions that go with the pictures being displayed. It's like being right there in the action...all these years later.
Truly Insider's View of the World of the Police 13. April 2008
Von James R. Holland - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Even though I have five exhibition prints from this book hanging on my home's walls, I'm still somewhat amazed at how good a photographer Andy Summers really is. While it's always been my feeling that an artist can have great talent in more than one discipline, Andy is a true Renaissance man. He is famous for his music as part of the popular band "Police," he is also a wonderful writer as well has a super sensitive photographer. His autobiography is also fascinating and a must read for fans of the Police!
With the same passion that he puts into his guitar music, Andy also provides an intimate view of just what it was like to tour with the Police in the years 1980-1983. This Taschen Coffee Table Photographic book is large format 375 pages chuck full of brilliant B&W pictures. Despite what most fans would imagine, being a member of the group made the picture taking more difficult than if a non-member of the band was doing it. When the world is pressing in on you from all directions and crying out to touch you, it's difficult enough just to survive. Having the presence of mind to photograph those adoring fans even as they attempt to smoother you with their love is a skill in and of itself.
My personal favorites from the more than 600 images included in the book included a picture of a smiling Sting in Japan. He has five Nikon Cameras--three motorized and two single shot versions hanging around his neck and is trying to drink a can of fruit juice at the same time. And while candid pictures of the members of the band are usually the most attention grabbing, Summers is particularly effective when he is photographing close-ups or details of the world the band encounters. Long after examining the book numerous times, many of the images that remain fresh in the mind are pictures of subjects such as warped buildings reflected in glass windows, an empty room service tray in the hall outside a hotel room with a ray sunlight spotlighting it, "Help" written on a roll of toilet tissue running across a carpet from a mysterious door, a bathroom scene with a large guitar case sitting next to a toilet but with a naked leg sticking out from behind the case and resting against the wall, a tiny skin diver exploring the tile bottom of a bathtub, a series of party pictures showing a beautiful pair of stocking covered legs being held straight up in the air by a large bunch of helium filled party balloons. The last photograph in that series shows the balloons all stuck on the ceiling of the hotel room and the rest of the mysterious beautiful women still wearing the white stockings and lingerie but standing just inside the adjoining room.
There are too many wonderful pictures to describe in this short review. I've not even mentioned the pictures that I purchased for display in my own home. Andy Summers has an excellent eye as well as a good ear. The book will provide the reader with a feeling that they have shared part of what the members of the Police experienced during the three years covered by the photographic essay. There is only one criticism I have with the book and that is the type that is used for all the text. It was obviously intended to resemble the actual type written diary entries that are used to caption the photographs. Unfortunately, on the black ground of the book that style of text reproduction is sometimes difficult to read. The captions are all repeated three times, first in English and then again in two additional languages. The buyer of this book won't be disappointed. If they are, just think that this is basically the same book that many people bought as an autographed and numbered limited edition for $600 per copy. The buyer of this edition doesn't get the autograph or number but they do get the rest of the entire experience. While looking at the pictures, it's almost as if the reader can hear the music, feel the excitement and the popping of the electricity.
Worth more than a flip through 19. Juli 2010

While it would help to be a pretty big fan of the police to enjoy this book, its not all that necessary. Andy Summers has proven himself as a truly talented photographer. It is very easy to interpret his view from what he saw through his camera lens. Each black and white photo is a window into the Police's journey, and what Andy happened to see along the way. Not to mention the little journal entry type blurbs really make what you see have some meaning. I was brilliantly surprised with this book. I would definitely recommend it to anyone at all.
