To my sorrow, I read today that Sven Nykvist has passed away. If I mention films like: Sleepless in Seattle, Crimes and Misdemeanors, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, The Sacrifice, Fanny and Alexander, Autumn Sonata, Hour of the Wolf, Persona, Winter Light, and The Silence you will know his excellent cinematography.
His work has inspired me very much as a photographer and will do so for the rest of my life. He certainly was one of the best cinematographers ever.
