Happy Birthday Jack Cardiff: 18th September 1914 - 22nd April 2009
For his inventions, imagination and sheer audacity, there has never been another colour cameraman like Jack Cardiff…Jack’s lighting and composition in Black Narcissus and The Red Shoes would have infuriated Delacroix, because he couldn’t have done any better himself, in imagination or in chiaroscuro. - Michael Powell.
You begin to see flourishes, with a camera cut, or a piece of composition, or the length of a shot; you begin to realise that he’s using the lens like brushstrokes. It’s a painting he’s made…Paintings that moved, extraordinarily, moved not only visually, but emotionally and psychologically also. - Martin Scorcese.
I wouldn’t start to dare to compare myself to what Turner did, but I’ve learnt a lot of lessons from Turner. You should be bold, and you should go out and do something that’s different and bold, and that’s the whole essence of photography in a sense. - Jack Cardiff
The best way of seeing how fabulous Jack’s work is - other than watching it of course - is to watch Cameraman (2010) Craig McCall’s documentary about him, filmed when Jack was still around and working, in the mid 2000s. Not only is is informative and entertaining, you also get to meet Jack, who is bloody lovely.
Just finished this one on my friend @mikequinn__ #tattoo #girl #classic #traditional_tattoo #ochoplacas #miami #realtattoos #javierbetancourt (at ochoplacas)
Happy Birthday, Greta Garbo! | 18 September, 1905 – 15 April, 1990.
“She has this great appeal to the world because she expresses her emotions by thinking them. Garbo does not need gestures and movements to convey happiness, despair, hope and disappointment, joy or tragedy. She registers her feelings literally by radiating her thoughts to you.” – Clarence Brown
That fabulous face.
