DOYLE, Christopher 杜可風
Why I Am Not A Painter
& Of the Film
(limited edition of 200)
Christopher Doyle has been creating beautiful imagery on film over the past four decades, and is regarded by many as one of the greatest cinematographers. He left his native Sydney at the age of eighteen, became a deck hand on Norwegian cargo ships, a cowboy at a Kibbutz in Israel, a quack doctor in Thailand, and then a green agriculturalist in India before making his home in Hong Kong.
He’s been known as Du Ke Feng – like the wind – since the late seventies. The name is derived from The Analects of Confucius which says a man of ‘quality’ should be like the wind.
