“Roger Deakins is one of the true living legends of filmmaking,” says conference director Dr. Maria Elena Gutierrez. “Throughout his career, he has captured some of the most iconic and memorable images ever committed to the screen, from Tim Robbins exulting in the rain in The Shawshank Redemption, to Ryan Gosling exploring a dust-shrouded Las Vegas in Blade Runner 2049. Roger’s
unique vision is unparalleled, and it is a privilege to honour his achievements at VIEW Conference 2021 by presenting him with this year’s VIEW Visionary Award.”
