Today, thousands of filmgoers enjoyed Star Wars: The Force Awakens and appreciated its style and cinematography which mirrors the work of the franchise’s earlier films. The earlier films, and other others like it, were shot by an older generation that young movie fans may not even know their names.
 

This last week, Hollywood lost the legendary cinematographer, Vilmos Zsigmond, best known for his work on Close Encounters of the Third Kind, who died on January 1, 2016 just five days after fellow cinematographer, Haskell Wexler who was known his work on numerous documentaries and stress-inducing Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Two great directors of photography – two distinctly different styles of work.
