Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Able to create smooth, flowing images onscreen in stark contrast to his kinetic nature, cinematographer Christopher Doyle has throughout his career shot some of the most memorable films in recent cinema history. His incessantly moving camera and manipulation of light, color and shadow mirrored a dynamic personality that ceased to rest even while having beer for breakfast (his hard-drinking reputation was well-earned.) Doyle's fastidious work ethic led him to take extreme measures to produce quality work - 50-plus takes, long waits for perfect natural lighting and never-ending searches for the right locations were regular occurrences with Doyle. But his perfectionism paid off, earning him many disciples over the years and - thanks to his longtime collaboration with director Wong Kar-wai - helping to create an insatiable hunger for Asian cinema.
