"You carry Mother Earth within you. She is not outside of you. Mother Earth is not just your environment. In that insight of inter-being it is possible to have real communication with the earth, which is the highest form of prayer." Thich Nhat Hanh

MAN, HE WAS ONE OF THE GREAT ONES

So sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Vilmos Zsigmond on January 1st, here shown on the left. Vilmos was one of my all time favorite cinematographers. I followed his career since McCabe and Mrs. Miller, although The Deer Hunter, Close Encounters, and The Rose weren't too bad either.

I was fortunate to work with him for a couple of days when he was in Palo Alto, California working on a documentary about Edward Teller for Hungarian Television.

Vilmos was a huge influence of my use of color and my method of coverage totally changed after a few short days with him.

Thanks for stopping by.
