The magazine of the photo-essay
August 2019 issue
Lartigue a retrospective
“A free, really high quality photo-essay magazine.  Fabulous!” Stephen Fry. British actor, writer and film maker
The best of the master French photographer’s work “When I think about my photo collections (and I rarely do),  I say to myself, ‘The only ones that have a chance of entertaining me in the future are exactly the ones that don’t interest me as I’m taking them today.’ It won’t be the beautiful, appealing, more or less elaborate pictures that I fashion with so much effort and delight  (and sometimes even love). Instead, my favorites will be random photos of inconsequential details taken haphazardly, capturing  a momentary slice of life that’s fleeting and soon outmoded.” Lartigue, 1920.
