As this finely crafted tribute shows, Italian cinematographer Carlo Di Palma’s life and career ran even deeper than the contributions he made to cinema. A child of the Second World War, Di Palma emerged from Rome's rubble as a 20-year-old in 1945, and found himself in the magical moment of Italian neorealist cinema. His father was a camera operator; his mother sold flowers on the Spanish Steps, which, in his own estimation, gave him a natural sense of colour.
It was his innovations in colour with Michelangelo Antonioni's Red Desert and Blow-Up in the mid-1960s that set him apart as a genius of the medium. A glorious celebration of a humanist and an artist of uncommon talent.
