Lartigue represents my ultimate lifestyle job.  He was not a fashion photographer, he was a photographer that lived the fashion of his time.


Every time I look at one of his books, it reminds me to recognize and shoot the simple beauty of my life.

    La Cote d’Azur de Jacques Henri Lartigue.
    Magnificient book of photographs of the 20′s and 30′s.
    He was a photographer but also a painter and a writer.

    Every now and again something from before gently nudges perspective back into place…

    I own and love this book and I’m a huge Lartigue fan. There’s sadness among the beauty though for the lost Riviera of dirt roads and uncrowded beaches. And Lartigue, sensitive as he was to the depiction of simple moments, enjoyed great wealth and was able to frame out imperfection from both his life and his images. This isn’t a criticism; as I said, I’m a fan, but one cannot look at these pictures without thinking about what isn’t shown.

    I love it! Looking at the book cover, the woman featured seems almost like a statue.

    Admit it or not, fashion is part of our life. Wearing right dress at business is also important. For other info about fashion ask help from image professional.
