RATE AND COMMENT

BIOGRAPHY

Former still photographer who worked as a camera operator for figures such as G.R. Aldo before graduating to director of photography in 1955. Rotunno became one of Europe's leading cinematographers in the 1960s, with his work ranging from the epic, operatic compositions of Visconti's "The Leopard" (1963) to the daguerreotype-influenced style of Monicelli's "The Organizer" (1963). He has shot several of Fellini's films as well as features directed by Mike Nichols ("Carnal Knowledge" 1971), Bob Fosse ("All That Jazz" 1979) and Terry Gilliam ("The Adventures of Baron Munchausen" 1989).
