James Dean walks down Broadway, his collar turned up, his shoulders hunched against the drizzle. This iconic black and white photograph is the work of Dennis Stock (1928 - 2010), and Stock is the subject of Beyond Iconic from Hanna Sawka Hamaguchi. This documentary introduces us to one of the most influential chroniclers of the late 20th century in his own words and through hundreds of his famous photographs. More than a mere biographic documentary, Beyond Iconic also brings us into Dennis Stocks classroom at the Omega Institute, where he taught photography workshops before his recent death. This film does not simply teach us about Dennis Stock and his photographs; it goes beyond and allows him to teach us about the passion of his life.
