THE AMAZING STEPHEN H. BURUM

Stephen H. Burum, one of my favorite cinematographers, is getting the lifetime achievement award from the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC). Some of his credits include:

CASUALTIES OF WAR, BODY DOUBLE, SNAKE EYES, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, THE OUTSIDERS, RUMBLE FISH, CARLITO'S WAY, THE UNTOUCHABLES, THE WAR OF THE ROSES, and HOFFA.

Getting up there in age, he hasn't worked in the last few years. But his work over the years, especially with director Brian De Palma, has been outstanding.

Yeah I can see why he was selected. Though I am a bit sad it wasn't Mathias Neumann. Oh well, I guess there is always next year.
