Distinguished Italian cinematographer Gianni Di Venanzo started out as a camera assistant during WWII and worked on several important neorealist films with such directors as Visconti, Rossellini, and De Sica. He became a full-fledged director of photography in the early '50s and became known for his ability to use lighting and camera techniques to strongly evoke a variety of moods. Though he worked with other great directors, including Fellini, Di Venanzo's best work can be seen in some of Michelangelo Antonioni's films of the '50s. Di Venanzo died while filming The Honey Pot at the age of 45.
