1998 photo-eye Best Retrospective. This elegant, ample monograph is a thorough retrospective of the work of French master, Jacques-Henri Lartigue. Taking up photography in the year 1900, at the age of six, Lartigue was fascinated with time, motion, and love--gracefully capturing the essence of the modern era. As an amateur, his perceptive brilliance caught the attention of the world's finest collectors and curators. This monograph reproduces many of his panoramic images as gatefolds.
