Discussing his role behind the camera, Kirsten Johnson arrives at the vast collection of images pulled over decades around the world. What emerges is a memoir revealing bold look and a questioning of the power of the camera. A boxing match in Brooklyn; life in post-war Bosnia and Herzegovina; The daily work of a midwife in Nigeria; An intimate family moments at home: the scene and others are woven into cameraperson, a tapestry of images collected during the career of twenty-five years as a documentary cinematographer Kirsten Johnson. Through a series of juxtapositions episodic, Johnson explores the relationship between the creators of image and their subjects, the tension between objectivity and the intervention of the camera, and the complex relationship Contact unfiltered truth and narrative crafted. A hybrid work that combines documentary, autobiography and ethical research, cameraperson is both a reflection of the movement of a filmmaker’s personal journey and a thoughtful examination which is to train a camera in the world.
