In Memory of Vilmos Zsigmond

The great cinematographer, Vilmos Zsigmond, passed away on January 1st, 2016. His framing of film is legendary, and he could show intimacies in abstract, as well as fill the widescreen with an epic sense of wonder. The art of cinema lost a soldier in Vilmos. Rest in Peace.

Let these screen captures speak for themselves.
