Welcome to the first installment of a mini-series celebrating some of the world’s greatest cinematographers.
I was rooting around on the net a few weeks back when I discovered this website. It is with the kind permission of Piotr Jaxa that a few of his portraits will be presented here for your enjoyment. I have also included some selected stills highlighting the artistry of the men featured.
Cries and Whispers, 1972
Winter Light, 1962
Through a Glass Darkly, 1961
