inspiration - manhattan (1979) woody allen

sometimes i find i'll revisit a film just for the cinematography and cinematic glory alone. manhattan is one such film.

woody allen and cinematographer gordon willis captured the splendour, the gravitas and also the grit of a city we are all so used to seeing on the silver screen to stunning effect in beautiful black and white.

here are some of my favourite frames from this classic, i can only hope to write such a visual love letter to the cities i've been inspired by in future.
