This week Anthony Lane reviews Ralph Fiennes’s film adaption of Shakespeare’s “Coriolanus.” The photographer Kalpesh Lathigra took the production as an opportunity to shoot two different projects—although, he admitted, he hadn’t read the play. “Julius Caesar was my Shakespeare,” he told me. The first project, was a more conventional series of production stills. The second was a series of large-format photographs, shot with a 5x4 camera, “where the actors are not the prominent players on stage but merely part of the wider tableaux of the set,” Lathigra said.- For more of Lathigra’s photographs from the set:
