Picasso & the Camera...


During his life, Pablo Picasso (Spain, 1881-France, 1973) had the most diverse bonds with photography and photographers of his time. He used the camera to capture what happened in his studio and at home, to study his works and express his new ideas, to document his creations and photograph himself many, many times...

Picasso collaborated with many photographers, such as Brassai, Dora Maar and André Villers. He made home-movies of his own family and friends and worked with cinematographers like Luciano Emmer and Henri-Georges Clouzot, who captured Picasso's creative process.
His life was documented by the majority of the most talented photographers of the 20th century, becoming a true world icon.
