Some Photographs by Jacques Henri Lartigue

"Louis Ferrand and my big cousin Jean Haguet"

"Zissou and Madeleine Thibault"


"Zissou's invention breaks down"

"The "bob with a sail" on a breezy day"

"Zissou flies!"

These are just a tiny handful of the amazing photos, captured moments, of Lartigue's life. His photographs are such a window into a world we have almost lost. The photos on this page are about playing around his family's country home in France in the first decades of this century. Lartigue's life, and his photos of his experiences reach much farther. We suggest finding a collection of his photos in a bookstore or library; it's worth the time.
