In front of the lens are Lartigue's family and friends. Much of the charm surrounding his photographs come from their spontaneous feel - as if he is capturing a light-hearted moment of joy or excitement with those he is closest to rather than a...

Have to say Thank You for showing me someone I hadn't heard the photos very much. The lack of color adds depth here. If in color, don't think they would convey such feeling. Very enjoyable.

Lartigue's photos are important not just because of his choice of subjects and the artistic value. He took great pains to learn and perfect the technique of stop action. I think of all the times of history, Paris in 1920's with the range of artists had to be one of the most interesting. They all spent time together, challenged each other to work better.

I love Lartigue's work, and I especially love the subject matter which shows the different costumes of the 1920's, and of course I absolutely love black and white photos. His way of stopping action right in the middle is such a great technique.
Thank you for sharing Carrie.

I often wonder whether we imagine people in the past as 'stuffier' than us because of the way they had to stay so still for early photographs. Thanks for these, Carrie.
