A boxing match in Brooklyn; life in postwar Bosnia and Herzegovina; the daily routine of a Nigerian midwife; an intimate family moment at home: these scenes and others are woven into 'Cameraperson', a tapestry of footage captured over the twenty-five-year career of documentary cinematographer Kirsten Johnson. Through a series of episodic juxtapositions, Johnson explores the relationships between image makers and their subjects, the tension between the objectivity and intervention of the camera, and the complex interaction of unfiltered reality and crafted narrative. A work that combines documentary, autobiography, and ethical inquiry, 'Cameraperson' is both a moving glimpse into one filmmaker’s personal journey and a thoughtful examination of what it means to train a camera on the world. "Kirsten Johnson’s ‘Cameraperson’ won Grand Jury award at Sheffield Doc/Fest 2016. It is a moving, contemplative work of self-reflection and ethics of the stories we tell through looking at others." - Luke Moody, Director of Film Programming at Sheffield Doc/Fest ★★★★ "A beautifully curated collage of outtakes" - Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian ★★★★★ "A fascinating and unique meta-documentary" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
