Book Description

Feb. 10 2009
As the official photographer on the set of Watchmen, Clay Enos was there at every stage of production as director Zack Snyder filmed the adaptation of the legendary graphic novel.

As well as his day-to-day duties making sure there was a visual record of the production, Enos also made time to work on a very special project: a collection of black-and-white portraits photographs.

From the lead characters, including of course Rorschach, the Comedian, Dr Manhattan, Nite-Owl and all the other Watchmen, to supporting characters and even extras in the crowd, his lens captured them all. With its wealth of exclusive photographs, this stunning book is a unique look into the world of the film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for serious fans of the movie May 21 2009
By K. Cole
I recommend this book for serious fans of the Watchmen movie who want to soak up every detail of the universe created in the film.

Large full page photos show detail in costumes, props, and make-up that you would never see in even a high-def version of the movie.
Did I say large photos? This book is MASSIVE. Seriously, of all the "coffee table" books I own, this is the first you could put legs on and actually use as a coffee table!

If you are not a Watchmen fan but happen to be into photography as a hobby or profession, this could be of special interest to you as well.

I might recommend the "Watchmen: Film Companion" and "Watchmen: Art of the Film" more for casual fans, but this book completes the set nicely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watchmen Photographic Orgasm Feb. 27 2009
By Tim Lasiuta - Published on Amazon.com
Whew....this is one amazing book. With unfettered access to the Watchmen film set, photographer Clay Enos has captured 'moments' instead of action (which have been captured in the Art of the Film).

The full page portraits freeze the entire cast of the film from the prostitute to Rorschach and inbetween. When you see the film and notice a character you might like to see in more detail, this is the reference you need.

Surprisingly, the black and white imagery accentuates the nostalgaic nature of the film.

Photographs capture the soul, and Clay Enos has a mitful. May they treat him kindly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watchmen Portraits - Outstanding Collection Feb. 28 2009
By S. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This oversized photo book is one of several Watchmen related books published on the eve of the film's release. It is an amazing collection of black and white photos of the cast from the film. They are not so much photos from the actual film, but of persons who are involved with the film. Nearly 200 pages, all full page photos without text. Most are photos of people, and some photos of props. There is an index which identifies the photos. It is a very cool book, a must for Watchmen fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Portraits of the Watchmen Crew = Very Stylish March 12 2009
By James J. McCormick - Published on Amazon.com
Watchmen: Portraits

Quick sidenote: Don't look through this book if you haven't read the graphic novel or watched the movie. There's actually some spoilers throughout, which when you see them are quite fantastic.

I got this book alone with Watchmen: The Art of the Film and Watchmen: The Film Companion on the same day a week before the film came out. I was tempted to look through them, peruse the pages and see what the film had in store. I held off with the latter 2, but I jumped into the Portraits book and devoured it, looking at each picture. What's cool about it is that they don't just showcase the stars of the film, but all the extras in the background and even the stunt doubles and stand ins for the various cast members.

If you love to see the making of a movie in any way imaginable, I suggest getting this film and the other 2 as soon as you can. A great coffee table book for all your friends to see.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lush Phtography Nov. 19 2009
By Tim Janson - Published on Amazon.com
The last book is the biggest, and most expensive of the Watchmen Books from Titan, and the most mercurial, as there is no text outside of a one page introduction by Director Zack Snyder. Clay Enos was the official photographer ob the set of the film and this book is the result of his efforts. As the title suggests, this book is devoted to full page, black & white, photos of every character, and every extra in the film. These are high-resolution photos, sometimes of full figures, and sometimes just head-shots...extreme close-up head shots. Often times of people who are not done justice by extreme close-ups. There are no titles or any text on the pages to detract from the art. The back of the book does provide a photo index to give you the name of each character. The black & white makes the book special. It gives a sense of grittiness to the photos that you would not have with color. At $50, this is a book for the true, hardcore fans and collectors.
