Small Axe

Thrilled to watch Steve McQueen’s Small Axe series. The cinematography is amazing — not only are the tones rich, but it’s the way the camera lingers on objects and images; how he utilises the camera moving through crowds or groups so that you feel that you’re physically in the group, in the midst of things and how highlighting objects and images giving emotional and cultural context. It’s giving cinematic context to TV drama by using visuals to tell the story; gives such a different feel to so many dramas.
