Hello Roger,

I recently watched the film "Light Keeps Me Company" about Sven Nykvist. This quote is attributed to him: "Today we make everything so complicated. The lighting, the cameras, the acting. It has taken me thirty years to arrive at simplicity."

It seems that so many regarded his work and his person very highly. I'm wondering if you ever met him and if so, what that was like? Also, do you have any thoughts about his work and his notion about simplicity, particularly in this age where technology is often the main focus?

Thanks for sharing your time and thoughts on this site.
