Largely known as one of the ten most influential cinematographers of film history, Haskell Wexler is remembered for films such as Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf? (1966), Bound for Glory (1976), and Days of Heaven (1978). Wexler received a Lifetime Achievement Award by the American Society of Cinematographers, and five Oscar nominations over the course of his career, which lasted six decades.

The Art Institute’s Flaxman Library has a large collection of Wexler’s movies that can be checked out for free. The F staff will definitely be taking advantage of that in order to remember Wexler’s significant contribution to film history.
