To mark Raymond Cauchetier’s 95th birthday, and to coincide with the publication of a new monograph on his work, James Hyman Gallery is delighted to present a new exhibition: Raymond Cauchetier’s New Wave. The exhibition includes never-before-editioned photographs selected from Cauchetier’s own private archive.

One of the most influential and innovative film-set photographers of his day, Cauchetier – who still lives in the same Paris apartment in which he was born in 1920 – was for many years the unacknowledged genius behind some of the most iconic images of 1960s French cinema. Following a sustained campaign to have his work recognised, and with events such as the 50th anniversary of the release of Jean-Luc Godard’s A Bout de Souffle (Breathless) in 2010 driving a resurgence of interest in New Wave cinema, Cauchetier is now ale to claim his rightful place in French photographic history.
