Director of Photography is the custodian of the heart of film
making... as the writers are of its soul .... his tool is a box with a
glass window, lifeless until he breathes into it his creative spirit and
injects into its steel veins,
plasma of his imagination .... the product of his camera, and therefore
of his magic, means many things to many persons - fulfilment of an
ambition .... realization of dreams'
