Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810943859, Hardcover)

The first comprehensive examination of the cinematographer's art, Making Pictures presents incisive analyses of 100 visually stunning films--radical classics like Battleship Potemkin (1925), Jules et Jim (1965), and The Elephant Man (1980)--along with a complete technical and creative history of the cameraperson's unique craft. The 500 illustrations include a wealth of location shots and expository stills, and contributions by seminal figures in the field make this an essential reference.
