We kick off the month with Jacques Rivette!
Although François Truffaut has written that the New Wave began “thanks to Rivette,” the films of this masterful French director are not well known. He is the director of “La Belle Noiseuse”(1991), “Va Savoir” (2001) and “Celine and Julie Go Boating”(1974). Check out these portraits of him by Martine Franck at the Museum of French Monuments, in front of a sculpture of the door of the Reims Cathedral! Franck was a well-known Belgian documentary and portrait photographer, and the second wife of Henri Cartier-Bresson. A member of Magnum Photos for more 32 years, Franck was also co-founder and president of the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation.
