Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

This cinematographer is best-known for his association with childhood friend writer and director Gus Van Sant, though in recent years he has successfully worked with other directors as well. His work is best described as "atmospheric", ranging from the dreamy, almost painterly landscapes of Van Sant's "My Own Private Idaho" (1991) and "To Die For" (1995) to the gritty photojournalistic style of Larry Clark's "Kids" (also 1995). Edwards and Van Sant began working together in high school, shooting the drama "The Happy Organ" and both attended the Rhode Island School of Design.
