This photographer captures movement and situations like no other, Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894-1986) was truly a master of his craft.
Combining beautiful technique with humour and thrilling subject matter (he loved fast cars, sailing, swimming, tennis and winter sports) as well as beautiful women. He realised that everything he valued such as happiness and youth, light and beauty were fleeting and so by capturing the moment on film he could preserve it forever.
Enough said, the images speak for themselves and it is amazing to think that they are almost 100 yrs old!
They are exhibited at the Caixa Forum in Barcelona until October 3rd-get there!
