Cameraperson (15)


Exposing her role behind the camera, Kirsten Johnson reaches into the vast trove of footage she has shot over decades around the world. What emerges is a visually bold memoir and a revelatory interrogation of the power of the camera.

The critical consensus

Cameraperson is filled with striking shots of Guantanamo Bay, Tahrir Square, the World Trade Center and Wounded Knee Creek but is as much about ethics as aesthetics and builds into an inspirational reflection of Johnson's integrity and unwavering commitment to her art.
