It is with great sadness that I heard the news this morning in Istanbul; Aussie cinematographer Andrew Lesnie died after having a heart attack on Monday. Only 59, he was a masterful lensman and artist, as well as a warm, thoughtful and enthusiastic bloke. Those who worked with him cherish the experience and are gutted. Vale Andrew.
