Personal Quote:

[on photographing Samuel L. Jackson's scenes in Django Unchained (2012)] Skin naturally reflects in a way that makeup doesn't. So we had to figure out a way to light him. Because the primary story circles slavery, of course every shot will, in one way or the other, deal with the contrast of black and white. I hope we succeeded. See more »
