Gianni Di Venanzo, AIC was praised by all his directors and peers for his care about the style of images and technical perfection. He is also remembered by his ability "... to establish a rapport with each director; a facility for sensing the particular textures they sought after; and sheer tenacity in getting those precise effects onto celluloid." Despite his unfortunate and premature death at 45, he did not disappear into an undeserved obscurity in film history. His style, lighting, framing and composition surpass his passing and continue to inspire, encourage and stimulate newer generations of cinematographers.

He inspired me.

Thanks, those are great compositions. Especially the top one. The use of scale really adds to the emotion of the scene.

One of my favorites, even tho a color film, was this scene from the Coen Brothers Fargo. This image just reeks of despair.

The Coen Brothers have their moments.
