ED LACHMAN talks the cinematography of CAROL: Interview Exclusive


A visually poetic cinematographer, some of Ed Lachman's most beauteous works have been with director Todd Haynes, and that includes the Oscar nominated CAROL. Calling CAROL "a culmination of a lot of our work together. It grew out of 'Mildred Pierce.' It's a later time period, but the feeling of it is the same.", Ed's passion for this film (and using film) is beyond evident as he interprets emotion through lighting and lensing. The cinematography of CAROL is in complete synergy with Phyllis Nagy's richly nuanced screenplay. Ed took time out of a busy schedule to speak with me in this exclusive one-on-one interview about CAROL. Take a listen to what he had to say. . .
