Gordon Willis

Gordon Willis, my favourite cinematographer, died the other day. He earned the sobriquet “The Prince of Darkness’ with his control of light. He emulated Rembrandt. But he also controlled composition like an Old Master.
I plan to re-watch some of his classics, Manhattan, All The President’s Men, And The Godfathers, as a celebration of his inspiring images.

All board artists are well advised to study his work.
