Product description


"Writing with Light, which may be the most stunning book ever published by a cinematographer, is most distinctive not in its images but in its prose--or rather, the relationship of Storaro's philosophical musings on the symbolic qualities of light to the shots from his films."--FilmMaker Magazine, Spring 2003

". . . [Writing with Light] is an erudite, stimulating and highly personal take on cinema in particular, and image-making in general, by one of the finest directors of photography working today."--Sight and Sound (UK), Spring 2003

"A must for cinephiles."--Premiere Magazine, May 2003

About the Author
