Award-winning international cinematographer who rose to prominence in the 1960s and 70s. Almendros' crisp black-and-white style recalled the early silent masters and he also did brilliant color work for Francois Truffaut (eight features, from 1969's "The Wild Child" to 1982's "Confidentially Yours") and Eric Rohmer (the black-and-white "My Night at Maud's" in 1969 and the sun-dappled "Claire's Knee" in 1970). During this period, Almendros collaborated with producer-director Barbet Schroeder on "More" (1969), "Maitresse" (1975) and the documentaries "General Idi Amin Dada" (1974) and "Koko, the Talking Gorilla" (1978).
