Raymond Cauchetier

Raymond Cauchetier discovered photography at the age of 25 when he created the French air force’s press service in Indochina. His first album, Ciel de guerre en Indochine, published in 1953, was highly successful. His work has been presented in Japan, where he is considered a major photographer, and the United States. The 1961 Smithsonian Institution show Faces of Viet-Nam toured the country for two years. In the late 1950s he began shooting film sets and within a few years became the unofficial photographer of the New Wave. Today his cinema photographs are exhibited worldwide.
