Looking at the New Wave in London

Jul 12, 2010

In March, we let you know about the underheralded Raymond Cauchetier, the unofficial photographer of the New Wave, by linking to an informative essay on cinematographer John Bailey’s blog. Now, if you’re living in London, you can see Cauchetier’s work, in a special exhibition at the James Hyman Gallery. On display from July 14 to August 28, the show, coinciding with Cauchetier’s ninetieth birthday, will offer a selection of iconic photographs from the set of Godard’s Breathless (including Belmondo and Seberg’s famous Champs-Élysées stroll), plus others from such films as Jacques Demy’s Lola and François Truffaut’s Jules and Jim.
