jacques henri lartigue – master of the snapshot

looking back at jacques henri lartigue photographs recently, i was smitten by the snapshoty aspect of it. and actually it makes total sense, at the time photo was only for technical usage as well as rich people that could afford it. and lartigue was not only rich but he was young and has plenty pf time to laugh around. so the prohibitive price of a single snapshot had people only doing contrived picture, when jacques henri was snapping around. somehow, there is this kind of fresh and great aspect to his work that you see a lot those days on blogs and candid shot photographers portfolio. not sure if the vintage aspect makes me not being really objective, yet he seems to remain the master. love it! by pp.
