Leading Danish cinematographer who by the age of 40 had some 50 credits under his belt, mainly in Scandinavian films. Salomon quickly built a reputation in Hollywood as an adept director of photography on epics, difficult shoots, and special effects extravaganzas. These successes soon led to directing assignments in TV and features. Salomon's credits in Denmark and Europe include Henning Carlsen's biopic of Gaugin, "Wolf at the Door" (1987), "The Flying Devils" (1985), and "The Baron" (1979). In Hollywood, he has worked on "Zelly and Me" (1988), "Torch Song Trilogy" (1988), James Cameron's underwater spectacle, "The Abyss" (1989), which earned him an Oscar nomination, Ron Howard's "Backdraft" (1991), for which he was Oscar-nominated for visual effects, and Howard's "Far and Away," his first film shot in 65mm.
