lucien-clergue-ArlesThe photographer, born in Arles in 1934, was close to Pablo Picasso despite their age difference. "The photos of Clergue are God's sketches," said the painter to his young friend. In the mid-1960s, he also worked on the creation of the Réattu museum's photo collection, which became the first Fine Arts museum to host photographic works by international artists, such as Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, Robert Doisneau, Man Ray , Dora Maar ...

In 1969, he founded, with a small group of photographic friends, the Rencontres de la Photographie ...

He is also one of the founders of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie (located on Boulevard Victor Hugo, opposite to Luma), the only art school in France exclusively dedicated to photography.
