Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894-1986): Life in color. He was the best-known “amateur” in the history of photography, discovered by the art world. He began by taking photos the pastimes and customs of his wealthy Parisian milieu. Although known for his black-and-white work, Lartigue loved color film, experimenting with the Autochrome process in the teens and twenties and embracing Ektachrome in the late 1940s. His color work is reproduced for the first time in this book.
