Pierre Lhomme 1930 - 2019

It is with great sadness that we learned that Pierre Lhomme, AFC passed away last week at the age of 89.
He was one the most important French cinematographers. He brought his talent with many famous French directeurs including Robert Bresson, Alain Cavalier, Jean Pierre Melville, James Ivory, Jean Eustache and Eric Rohmer. He was also a close collaborator of Chris Marker with whom he co- directed the documentary film “Joli Maien” in 1962.

Nominated 5 times for the Cesar of the best Photography between 1976 and 1984 for the following films “La chair de l’orchidée” et “Judith Therpauve” from Patrice Chéreau, “Le Sauvage” directed by Rappeneau, “Dites lui que je l’aime” and the beautiful “Mortelle Randonnée” films by Claude Miller, he finally got the precious statuette for “Camille Claudel” directed by another famous French cinematographer Bruno Nuytten in 1989 and “Cyrano de Bergerac” from Jean Paul Rappeneau in 1991.

For his family and many friends in the AFC, Imago would like to show his support and friendship.
