    Cinematographer Owen Roizman has died at the age of 86. The US Association of Cinematographers (American Society of Cinematographers) mourns the loss of one of its best representatives, who trumped especially in the heyday of New Hollywood cinema in the 1970s. According to a statement from the organization on social media, Roizman passed away after a long illness.

    The Hollywood Reporter also reports that Roizman passed away last Friday (January 6) after spending several months in a hospice.

    His most famous works include The Exorcist (1973) and French Connection (1971) – both directed by William Friedkin – and Network (1976).

    Roizman received a total of five Oscar nominations over the course of his career. Roizman was also on the list for Tootsie (1982) and Wyatt Earp (1994). Nevertheless, the experienced cameraman, who also made extensive use of street photography in his work and cultivated a partly documentary style, always got nothing. In 2017, however, Roizman received an honorary Oscar.
