Bradford Young and the Sacred Frame
Explore the style of one of the most talented cinematographers working today.
Though he may not be a household name yet, Bradford Young is a cinematographer to know. Even before becoming director of photography on the upcoming Solo, Young had already built up an impressive body of work. From Arrival and Mother of George to Selma and Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, he leaves his singular visual mark on each film. In the first installment of our new series, "Language of the Image," we examine the stylistic touches that make Young so unique, including his deft usage of close-ups and color, all of which serve to validate Young’s contention that each frame in a movie is sacred.
