Rob in L.A.

Thanks for writing this tribute. Sven Nykvist is one of my favorite cinematographers. When I was in high school, in the pre-home-video days, I was lucky enough to have a PBS station that, for a while, regularly showed Ingmar Bergman movies (along with several other art films from the Janus catalogue), and Nyqvist's black & white cinematography on most of these films (Gunnar Fischer shot the earlier ones) helped me to truly appreciate how light and shadow blended to create a compelling chiaroscuro image on a two-dimensional surface. A milestone in my personal cinematic education. Thanks again.
