Harris Savides, cinematographer for 'Milk' and 'Zodiac,' dies at 55

Harris Savides, the cinematographer behind some of the most visually striking films and music videos of the last 20 years, passed away today. He was 55.

A native New Yorker, Savides started out his career as a fashion photographer.

From the start, I recognized his talent (I was one of the only critics to praise the generally lambasted Alien 3, his first feature, and I stand by my admiration for its creepy art-horror spell). Yet on the most fundamental level, I wasn’t truly drawn to his work. READ FULL STORY
