Sad news: Harris Savides, a modern master of the art of cinematography, has passed away. Savides was a favorite of auteurs like David Fincher (for whom he shot Zodiac and The Game), Gus Van Sant (six films including Milk, Gerry, and Elephant), Noah Baumbach (Margot at the Wedding, Greenberg) and Sofia Coppola, whose upcoming film The Bling Ring will serve as his final credit. Savides was just 55 years old.
