That's a great link, I really enjoyed looking through those shots. Hadn't heard of him before.

Re: Famous French street photographer

Thanks for the link, what a great photographer! I love the humour present in much of his work. I would guess that the only reason he is less well known than Henri Cartier-Bresson is that his name is more difficult to pronounce! His work is certainly right up there with HCB.

Re: Famous French street photographer

Maybe my sense of humour is 'twisted', but I liked the pictures of the 'nude in the window' with people looking in.

I also liked the pictures of loo's - especially the one up in the air. See if you can spot it.

Thanks for the heads up and link.

David.

Re: Famous French street photographer

wow wicked link mate, thanks for sharing. Over the years iv seen a few of those photos before (the one of Picasso with bread roll fingers and the one of Giacometti a personal fav of mine). Had know idea who they were taken by, really like the bird po statures and helicopters lol very Banksy, you can certainly see where he gets it from.
