Celebrated cinematographer Robby Müller, best known for his work on films by Wim Wenders, Jim Jarmusch, and Lars von Trier, has died at 78.
 
Dutch publication Het Parool reports that he died at his home in Amsterdam, after several years of vascular dementia which left him unable to talk or move independently.
 
In a Twitter post, Jarmusch said: “We have lost the remarkable, brilliant & irreplaceable Robby Müller. I love him so very much. He taught me so many things, & without him, I don’t think I would know anything about filmmaking.”
 
Born in Curaçao (then part of the Netherlands Antilles) in 1940, Müller was described as “one of the greatest film artists of the last half-century”.
 
After studying at the Netherlands Film Academy, Müller was apprenticed to cinematographer Gerard Vandenberg and worked as a camera assistant on a number of his features in Holland and Germany.
