robby müller (1940-)
bio from wim wenders site:
"robby mueller was born on april 4th 1940 in villemstad, curacao, on the dutch antilles. he studied at the filmacademy in holland from 1962 to 1964 and started to work as a director of photography soon afterwards".
certainly one of the most interesting living cinematographers, he has worked with wim wenders, lars von trier and jim jarmusch among others.
his filmography includes: the american friend, repo man, paris, texas, to live and die in l.a., down by law, barfly, mystery train, dead man, breaking the wave, and dancer in the dark.
a great example of his craftsmanship is the ending sequence of dead man, when the canoe drifts out into oblivion (see image below).
