    I've only just found out about this photographer. His pictures of nudes reminds me of the way Hopper painted light. His pictures of 1950s-60s Paris remind me of Nouvelle Vague films of the same period.

    I first heard of him as one of the photographers in Steichen's 'Family of Man' exhibition. He was mates with Cartier-Bresson and some of the other Magnum photographers. He's fantastic.

    You should try to find a copy of the Family of Man book. There are some real gems in there from a whole host of photographers from the 1950s.

    He was sued by one of the people in a photo, under the French law about owning the copyright of your own likeness, or whatever it is... Even though the woman actually liked the photo!

    Caught snapping
