Jacques Henri Lartigue was largely unknown as a photographer until the age of 70. Born in Courbevoie to a wealthy family, he took up photography about the age of 7. Some of his most famous photographs were made as a teenager. His subjects ranged from auto-racing to aviation. Lartigue's use of action in his photographs set him apart from many photographers of the time. After the family money started running out in the 1930's, Lartigue spent the next 30 years making a meager salary off of his paintings. He had a few photographs published in the 1950's, but it wasn't until the 1960's that his work was shown to John Szarkowski at MoMA in New York and he became known as one of the great photographers of the 20th Century. Lartigue was near 70 by the time this happened. Book shown in this video: Jacques Henri Lartigue http://amzn.to/289mCRy Also recommended: Lartigue: Life in Color http://amzn.to/289nfL4
