“FRAMING THE WORLD” EXHIBITION
Thursday November 9th, 2017
In this line of work, everything starts with the skilful placement of the camera and creating the right composition of the frame. That is why I encourage you to see the exhibition of stills by cinematographers of the ASC and IMAGO. I would like to stress that the first meeting of these two associations took place during the opening of our Festival in 1993. It was then that IMAGO was created, initiated by Vittorio Storaro, who presided over the jury. Another member of the jury was Victor Kemper, President of the ASC. He took the opportunity to encourage a dialogue between cinematographers from Europe and the US – a dialogue concerned with copyrights and occupational requirements as well as the artistic values and technological conditions of the art of cinematography. I am glad to know that this cooperation has been flourishing now for 25 years. I would also like to take this opportunity to wish all the members of IMAGO many artistic successes, Golden Frogs at the upcoming instalments of the Camerimage Festival, Oscars, and many other awards at festivals which have followed in Camerimage’s footsteps and begun to recognise and appreciate the creativity of cinematographers."
