In the below video from the New York Film Festival, cinematographer Ed Lachman discusses his long-standing relationship with director Todd Haynes and his work on their latest collaboration, Carol.
"I've been very fortunate to work with a lot of visual directors. And that's been a big support for me what I have people who understand that images are about ideas, and they're not just about aesthetic pleasing images.

"When I work with someone like Todd Haynes...he's someone who always uses cinematic language to comment, not just for aesthetic reasons."
