Lartigue’s Pursuit of Simple Pleasures
A few “snaps” as one of the greatest photographers of the 20th Century, Jacques Henri Lartigue, culled them for his personal album. He was rumored to have created one hundred and twenty such photographic albums.
While he was most famous for his stunning photographs of automobile races, planes and fashionable Parisian women from the turn of the century, (the sun-hatted beauty at top was the mesmerizing Renée Perle, Lartigue’s muse and wife) he was also known for capturing life’s simple pleasures.
He led a charmed life dedicated to the pursuit of happiness.
One might assume he found it.
