Winner of the Oscar honorary award in 2010 "for unsurpassed mastery of light, shadow, color and motion", the American cinematographer is most known for The Godfather trilogy and collaborations with Woody Allen.
Has definitely been growing on me as one of my absolute favorite cinematographers as I've been going through the '70s. My favorite is still by far All the President's Men with its incredible use of open spaces, shadows, and of course those amazing split focus diopters.
But man, almost anything of that decade (plus The Purple Rose of Cairo) would be a worthy winner. Gotta check out more of his post-70s stuff.
