Parisian Jacques Henri Latargue began taking photographs from the age of eight and recorded snapshots of his life right up until his death in 1986 at the age of 92, and more than 250 of the images are on display at the IMS until September. Far from highlighting the important historical events through which he lived, the pictures are familiar and free, showcasing a privileged life with friends, fast cars and family trips and the progression of techniques he employed and his first work with colour images. Extracts from personal diaries accompany the visuals, many of which only came to light later in his life, leading to exhibitions in New York, an official commission from former French president Valéry Giscard d'Estaing and spreads in major global publications including Life Magazine.
