Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Preeminent Mexican cinematographer of the 1940s and 50s whose mastery of chiaroscuro earned him international acclaim. Figueroa appenticed in Hollywood under Gregg Toland and, after returning to Mexico, worked extensively with both Emilio Fernandez--for whom he shot "Maria Candelaria" (1943) and "Maclovia" (1948) among many others--and Luis Bunuel, with whom his collaborations include "Los Olvidados" (1950) and "Nazarin" (1958). John Ford's "The Fugitive" (1947) and John Huston's "Night of the Iguana" (1964) and "Under the Volcano" (1984) benefitted from Figueroa's brilliant compositions of his native Mexico.
