The American Society of Cinematographers announced the recipients of their 27th annual ASC Outstanding Achievement Awards. The awards will take place on February 10.
No women were honored of the four awards announced.
While we’re sure Dean Semler, Rodney Charters, Robby Muller and Curtis Clark are certainly deserving of these awards, the problem lies more in the fact that women are deeply under represented in cinematography. In 2011, only 4% of all cinematographers were women.
We know there are great women working as cinematographers. Give them some visibility. If you can’t see it…you can’t be it. (Marian Wright Edelman)
