Autour de la Nouvelle Vague (1958-1968)
Image France Editions published a book of Raymond Cauchetier’s photographs about the French New Wave film movement.
Marc Vernet, professor of film studies at the Sorbonne and former director of the Film Library, contributed to the book.
“The force of Raymond Cauchetier’s photos is not due to the outstanding character of the stars he photographs (the actors are almost all beginners), or to the artistic dimension of the filmmakers he works for, as Georges Pierre worked for Alain Resnais, for example. The force of his photos is due to the fact that, before anyone else, before the films were edited and shown, he was able to catch the spirit of the movement which (at the time he took the photos) was to be the New Wave”. – Marc Vernet.
