Many know him from his work as a painter. However, Jacques Henri Lartigue had a second set of eyes, a pair that saw the world through his camera lens. In this world, he took around 120,000 photos, both under a professional and personal umbrella. Of those photographs, only about 40% were in color, most documenting his life and loves. Today it's the ones of his last love, Florette Ormea, that I'm drawn to.
"I have never taken a picture for any other reason than that at that moment it made me happy to do so," Lartigue once said. A statement that shows in the lightness and beauty in his personal photography.
