Period : 1918 - 1936

In his survey of cinematographic practice from 1918 to 1936, Cavendish draws attention to the creative input of the cameraman and describes methods of collaboration between directors and camera operators who were often of differing cultural outlooks. He relates his study of film to parallel trends in still-photography and painting, and traces the continuing impact of pre-revolutionary cinematic norms on the production process.
