Began his career in British film at the age of 15 and graduated to cinematographer in the late 1920s. Young went on to illuminate a host of British and Anglo-American productions and enjoyed a productive long-term association with director David Lean, earning Oscars for his color photography on such lush spectacles as "Lawrence of Arabia" (1962), "Doctor Zhivago" (1965) and "Ryan's Daughter" (1970).
Young also shot Vincente Minnelli's richly textured "Lust For Life" (1956) and Gene Kelly's "Invitation to the Dance" (1957), a film that integrated live action with animated footage. An octogenarian, Young directed his first film, "Arthur's Hallowed Ground", in 1985.
