One of the most important cinematographers of the 20th Century was the Englishman Frederick A. Young. He was born in 1902 came already in contact with the film business in 1917.
He made a name for himself during the 30's in cooperation with Herbert Wilcox. Only in the 30's he was responsible for the camera for nearly 70 movies. It was Wilcox who led him to Hollywood where he also rose to one of the most respected cinematographers.
The 60's marked the absolute zenith of his career. Together with director David Lean he created high-quality work of the best. In the movie „Lawrence of Arabia“ (62) there is a legendary sequence in which actor Peter O'Toole watchs the turn up of a person on the horizon. And who has seen "Doctor Zhivago" will surely remember to the wonderful photographed pictures.
Young was nominated five times during his extensive film work and
got the statue in 1962, 1966 and 1971.
The likeable cameraman Frederick Young died in 1998 in London at the age of 96.
