Jack Cardiff, R.I.P.

From mountain drop dizzying steep
to lipstick red ravishing deep
D.P.'s patron saint
with film stock would paint
bold colour to make the eyes weep

Jack Cardiff
, a master of Technicolor, was the director of
photography on A Matter Of Life and Death, Black Narcissus
(pictured) and The Red Shoes, as well as many other films.
