[ English ] [ français ]

We were deeply saddened to learn of the death of cinematographer Romain Winding, AFC, on 20 July 2023 at the age of 71, following a long battle with illness. He passed away in his home in the Ardèche where he had been living for several years. We will remember him as a delicate, discreet, precise and elegant person whose talent shone in over sixty feature films and made-for-TV movies that he shot.

Born into a family of filmmakers, he had a rigorous personal ethics, and was faithful to director Benoît Jacquot and also worked with many other directors. Romain was awarded the César for Best Cinematography in 2012 for Les Adieux à la reine.

The cinematographers of the AFC send their friendly condolences to Josiane, his spouse, and Claire and Arthur, his children.

We will soon publish an article about Romain’s career and personality.
