Oscar-winning British cinematographer Guy Green has passed away aged 92. Green is best know for his inspired, expressionism tinged lensing of David Lean's Dickens classics, GREAT EXPECTATIONS and OLIVER TWIST. The cinematographer rendered the threatening, monochromatic Victorian settings of those films in stark black and white, and through a terrified childs eye. The visions of director Lean and designer John Bryan were completely fulfilled.

Unfortunately, Green got the dreaded "brilliant cinematographer turned bad director" bug (which we've lost TOO many great DPs to), and in 1955 he quit cinematography. A great pity, as he made a great and lasting impression on the world of camera and lighting.

A landmark cinematographer whose contributions to cinema will long be appreciated.
