Photography featured in films... all you ever wanted to know!

Still photography and the moving image has always gone hand in hand. I came across this wonderful site, the Cine-Tourist, which amongst other things lists the movies, since 1895, that feature photography. We can all think of Antonioni's Blow Up from 1966 and Hitchcock's Rear Window from 1954, but I'm sure like me, you've probably under-estimated the number. The site was created by one Roland-Francois Lack who teaches both French and Film at University College London. And oh, if you're also into maps the site provides an index of movies featuring cartography. There are also some fascinating links that are well worth exploring.
