Cinematographer Harris Savides dies
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.
