My father Gillo, directed "The Battle of Algiers" in 1966, the year I was born.
When I was a boy, I wanted to be a director just like him
but I was fascinated by photography.
I took black-and-white still pictures of everything,
flowers,architecture,people on the streets,and beautiful light.
I also enjoyed playing with chemical processing.
It was like magic when the images came out…Cinematography is the
art of telling stories by the way you frame and light, and with the
atmosphere you create. Every movie can be lit and shot in different ways,but I try to give to each one its own visual arc.
I’m a very intuitive person. I push the director and he pushes me.
Every collaboration has a different alchemy,but the main thing is that
everybody is making the same picture.
You have to love your work and respect everyone on the project
if you expect something good to happen.
