A collection of Lartigue’s iconic images, loaned by the French Ministère de la Culture and William Mora Galleries, will be exhibited at Manning Clark House from October 5—31, 2014. This is a rare chance to see work by one of the founders of modern photography in limited edition platinum prints.
French photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894—1986) worked as a painter for most of his career. A love of sport triggered an interest in photography and his earliest work was devoted to sports events— the French Grand Prix, the French open tennis championships and early flights of aviators such as Roland Garros, Louise Paulhan, Gabriel Voisin and Louis Blériot. His images were produced on glass negatives, autochromes and film and appeared in sporting magazines.
Gallery opening hours: Thurs – Sat, 9:30am – 2:30pm
