"The personal choice of 150 cinematographers, each accompanied by a “trademark film", obeys the sole criterion of heart and soul. They are the cinematographic co-authors who have accompanied and inspired our individual careers for generations - artists whom we admire and identify with profoundly, and look on as the ultimate models of cinematographic creativity. Great personalities who have led us to discover, made us dream, taught us to love, and then become part of THE ART OF CINEMATOGRAPHY. In essence, this is a tribute to cinematographers from cinematographers. It is in this spirit that those who have produced the volume wish to thank all the authors and co-authors of the films included in this tribute to the art of cinematography for having made so many masterpieces of world cinema in the course of the past Century."
