I saw over at Seth's that Sven Nykvist passed away. Many of my favorite Ingmar Bergman films were shot by Nykvist, who managed to find stark and devestating beauty in those bleak landscapes.





I certainly claim no technical expertise when it comes to cinema--but know that many films I admire a great deal owe much of their beauty to Nykvist's mastery.

As I've blathered about before, in my 'yout' I wanted to be a cinematographer,and Nykvist was always one of my main inspirations.
