I didn't realize this book was published in 1984. As such it is a conversation with contemporary cinematograpers in a historical sense, but not in actuality. The interviewee's are all men and the discussion doesn't contextualize many of the director's or other cinematographers that are referrenced. Also, obviously so much has changed in the field in the past 23 years that in an overall sense the book has relevance, but not practically.
