About this Episode
Ed Lachman is one of the great modern-day masters of light and lens. He’s left a mark on the craft of cinematography, through a combination of talent, insight, and intuition and intelligence. He’s quite simply, fantastic. His use of color is innovative and experimental, his use of camera is sensitive and delicate. Ed never makes a shot because he’s “just shooting”, he always searches for the motivation behind the composition. His work speaks for itself; it is always gorgeous and elevating the material.
