Brigitte Lacombe – Cinema/Theater
Brigitte Lacombe ranks among the most prominent photographers of the contemporary movie and theater scene in France and the US.
Her black-and-white portraits of actors and directors, among them Jean-Luc Godard, Robert Altman, Woody Allen, Roberto Rossellini, Robert de Niro, Arthur Miller, Gérard Depardieu, Glenn Close, Winona Ryder, Julia Roberts, Meg Ryan, Dustin Hoffman, Jeanne Moreau, Isabelle Adjani, Joseph Losey, to name but a few, bespeak a trust and familiarity between model and artist that is unique in today’s photography. First published in 2001, this first monograph of hers has become a classic of portrait photography.
