RIP Gilbert Taylor. He was one of the great cinematographers who transformed science fiction with his work on Star Wars and other films. Sadly, Taylor has died at age 99.

Just for the record, on one sadly dies at 99, except perhaps a Vulcan or a Middle Earth Elf. If I die at 99, never let it be said that anyone, including I, am sad.

That said, well done Mr. Taylor, the mark you left on cinema was profound and there are elements of your gifts in every SF and Fantasy film to date.
