Stephen Goldblatt

Director of photography Stephen Goldblatt has created palettes and tapestries that are visually delectable, exhibiting a bold approach to cinematography. He earned his first Academy Award nomination for "The Prince of Tides" (1991), in which he created for director Barbra Streisand a lulling, inviting and enveloping aura in the Carolina sequences which contrasted to the abusive horrors of the children's lives, and made the subsequent screeching lighting understandable. His work on his second Oscar-nominated effort, "Batman Forever" (1995), moved in yet another direction, with a flashy color scheme and contrasts of light and shadows which, while not as dark as the first film in the series, nevertheless bowed to expressionism.
