Biography by Sandra Brennan

The camerawork of noted Swedish cinematographer Gunnar Fischer is noted for the ways in which he managed to blend, balance, or contrast black-and-white imagery to create the rich variety of textures, especially with outdoor scenes. He was best known for his collaborations with Ingmar Bergman on such films as The Seventh Seal (1956) and Wild Strawberries (1957). Fischer started out in 1935 as an assistant cameraman and seven years later he became a full-fledged lighting director. In 1960, he and Bergman had a major argument and parted ways.
