Description

Hello everyone and welcome back to Mystery Scoop. A seven year old boy acquired a photographic camera in 1901 and made history. Jacques Henri Lartigue, was a French photographer and painter, most famous for his photographs of the leisure activities of France’s middle and upper classes in the early 20th century. He was one of the first artists to use the Kodak Brownie camera for snapshots, photographing in the early stages, his friends and family playing, racing, making kites, gliders and moving on to other numerous sporting and fashion activities at the time. Lartigue often captured his subjects mid-gesture as in real life, creating a new visual language for the 20th Century. He is often referred to as "The boy who photographed La Belle Époque of France". He continued taking photographs and maintained written journals about them throughout his life. He only became internationally famous in his late years, when his photography work was discovered and exhibited in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, in 1963. Lartigue left behind more than 100,000 photographs, 7,000 diary pages and 1,500 paintings.
