Vierny began his film career making news documentaries in Africa and shot his first feature, "Le Bel Age," in 1958. He is known for his crisp lighting and deep-focus photography and has often worked with Alain Resnais, notably on "Hiroshima Mon Amour" (1959) and "Last Year at Marienbad" (1961). In the 1980s, Vierny had become director Peter Greenaway's cinematographer of choice, reaching American audiences with the strikingly shot "The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover" (1989) and "Prospero's Books" (1991). His final film was "The Man Who Cried" (2001), directed by Sally Potter.
