I’ve just realized Raymond Cauchetier is the photographer responsible for so many of the amazing new wave production photographs that exist… It all started when Cauchetier was introducted to Jean-Luc Godard while Godard was still working at Cahiers du Cinema. Godard eventually hired him to be the production photographer on the set of his first film, Breathless. Cauchetier was never professionally trained, but developed his near-perfect sense of timing while doing some aerial combat photography while in the French Air Force. He was hired as the set photographer for a number of new wave films, creating images as iconic as the films themselves.
