A Light dimmed!


Sven Nykvist died today. He was one of my favorite cinematographers. He'll always be associated with Bergman, but he did do so much more, and he was a great cinematographer. I put him in the same league as Nestor Almendros another cinematographer who passed some time back, but they were very similar. They used simplicity and achieved dramatic results. There is so much more to say about him and his work, but it will have to wait till another post. He was 83 and he was considered the Master of light. God speed Herr Nykvist.
