About This Book

A rereading of the "seventh art" through the eyes of the most important cinematographers. The Art of Cinematography underscores the essential importance of the figure of the cinematographer in the history of world cinema. A full-blown review that stretches from 1910 to the present day, this volume is illustrated by stunning photographic images in double vision specially reworked by Oscar winner Vittorio Storaro and provides the reader with over 150 profiles of cinematographers in a whole century of cinema. The volume is accompanied by a DVD with images in motion dedicated to the artists included in the book.
