Cinematographer Harris Savides has died at the age of 55.

Savides, who worked with filmmakers such as Gus Van Sant and David Fincher, died on Wednesday night, his representatives at The Skouras Agency in Los Angeles confirmed.

They did not give a cause of death.

Savides was known for vividly recreating the hazy hues of 1970s cinema in films like Fincher's Zodiac and Ridley Scott's American Gangster, and for mesmerisingly fluid, long takes with Van Sant in movies including Last Days, Elephant and Gerry.

The last film he shot was Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, based on the true story of teenagers who burgled celebrities' homes, which is due out next year.

Savides also shot several influential music videos, working often with director Mark Romanek on clips including Michael Jackson's Scream and Madonna's Rain.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
