Michelangelo Antonioni, one of Italy's most influential post-war film directors whose portrayals of modern angst and alienation won him a cult following, has died aged 94.

His 1966 cult favorite “Blow Up” was a huge influence on me. Last Summer, while in London, I actually retraced and photographed the location of many scenes from the film.

Goodbye Michelangelo Antonioni and thank you!
