The images of Jacques Henri Lartigue from the beginning of the 20th century were first exhibited by John Szarkowski in 1963 at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) in New York.At the time, the curator presented Lartigue as a mere amateur. This was the starting point for the artist to rethink his life, his way of working and his oeuvre.
Starting from the traditional practice associated with the amateur photographer - gathering his images in photo albums - Lartigue made an impressive body of work, laying out his life in an ensemble of 126 large sized folios. 
When he was over 70 years old, Lartigue used these albums to revisit his life and mixed his own history with that of the century he lived in, while symbolically erasing painful episodes.
