The American Society of Cinematographers has selected British d.p. Gilbert Taylor to receive the org’s 2006 international achievement award.

Kudos, presented to a cinematographer whose main body of work was created outside the U.S., will be presented during the 20th annual ASC awards ceremonies at the Century Plaza Hotel on Feb. 26.

Taylor’s career, which started as an assistant cameraman in 1929 when he was 15, includes nearly 70 cinematography credits, including “Dr. Strangelove,” “A Hard Day’s Night,” “The Omen” and “Star Wars.”

He received a lifetime achievement award from the British Society of Cinematographers in 2002. Taylor, who is 91, retired about 10 years ago.

“Gil Taylor was an amazingly versatile cinematographer,” said ASC president Richard Crudo. “He worked in black and white and color, in virtually every genre from science fiction to humor, drama and fright films.”
