Giuseppe Rotunno AIC ASC – February 2021

Dear ACS members, friends and colleagues,

Today we are without one of the greats of cinematography.

The flame has flickered one last time and we are without the Maestro, Giuseppe Rotunno AIC ASC. This sentinel of our art was 98 years young and he shone like a beacon across the cinematographers landscape.

His influence has been astounding and how many of us copied, or at least tried to, that unique style. I was one, and couldn’t even come close, such was the majesty of his images.

The thoughts of us all in IMAGO go to the Rotunno family and to his many close friends, who are no doubt remembering the late, great Giuseppe Rotunno AIC ASC and his legacy.

RIP Maestro……you will live on in our hearts and minds.
