The veteran Russian DOP will receive a lifetime achievement award at this year’s festival, which takes place in November.
The annual Camerimage Cinematography Festival will present legendary Russian DOP Yadim Yusov with a Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s ceremony, which will takes place in Bydgoszcz, Poland (November 24 -December 1).
Most renowned for his collaborations with director Andrey Tarkovskiy on films such as Solaris and Andrei Rublev, Yusov’s career has spanned over seven decades, with his most recent work coming on Andrei Proshkin’s Apelsinovyy sok in 2010.
He won the cinematography prize at the Venice Film Festival in 1988 for The Black Monk, and has been nominated for three Nika Awards – the Russian equivalent of the Oscars – triumphing twice.
He was also a member of the jury at the 1984 Cannes Festival, and more recently he was presented with the Golden Camera 300 for Lifetime Achievement at the 2004 Brothers Manaki Festival, an international cinematographers festival.
A selection of Yusov’s films will be shown at Camerimage in honour of the award.
