THE POWER OF CINEMATOGRAPHY: A Love Letter to Cinema

THE POWER OF CINEMATOGRAPHY: A Love Letter to Cinema

Film has an undeniable power. The power to make you believe. The power to make you feel. The power to make you desire. But all of this wouldn’t be possible without beautiful, stunning, striking and memorable visuals. In honor of the greatest shots ever put to film, many of them that have influenced my life and work, here is a compilation of some of cinema’s best.
ENJOY!!!
