The acclaimed photographer and later cinematographer, Wolfgang Suschitzky died recently at the grand old age of 104! His best known film was probably the seminal 1971 British gangster drama Get Carter,directed by Mike Hodges and starring Michael Caine. It obviously runs in the family, as his son is Peter Suschitzky BSC,ASC, and grandson is Adam Suschitzky BSC.

Thank you, that obituary totally passed my by. How sad.

For some reason Peter is no longer a BSC member.


Really? I wonder why?

According to the BSC site Peter resigned in 2008 but no reason is given.
