Jacques Henri Lartigue
About a year or more ago I came across a book at an antique store called Lartigue's Riviera, this was my first time experiencing Jacques Henri Lartigue's photographs. The book was quite out of my price range, but I was totally smitten with his photographs and how ahead of his time he seemed to be. The images really provoke something profound in it's viewers, with amazing lighting and feeling in each and every one of them. And amazing composition and great framing! My friend Ali recently sent me a link to this Livejournal, where I got all of these images from, and it just reminded me how much I love his work. I want to blow up all of these images and hang them from my walls. His work really makes me long for the past and how there was such beauty in every little thing.
