To celebrate our exhibition, Light: Works from Tate’s Collection, we’ve curated a selection of titles that showcase the myriad ways in which light can be used to enhance a film.

This collection highlights and celebrates the work of the cinematographer, by exploring the use of natural light, shadow, colour, and black and white photography.

Make sure to check this shelf regularly, as new titles will be added each month.
