It is with profound sorrow that we inform that Jan Laskowski, an acclaimed Polish cinematographer passed away.
Jan Laskowski was born on the 10th February 1928 and made his debut in 1950s. In his career he was inspired by the aesthetics of the Italian neorealism and he became a precursor of the new wave of the European cinematography with his camera work on Tadeusz Konwicki’s The Last Day of Summer (1958) which he also co-directed.
