Known as one of Europe’s most dashing actors during the 1960s up to the 1980s, Alain Delon became famous early in his career for his breathtaking good looks. His acting days began shortly after he was scouted by producer David O. Selznick during the 1957 Cannes Film Festival. Delon deferred the offer of contract from the American film producer, but he nevertheless starred in his debut film in 1957, and went on to establish a name for himself in his home country.
The handsome French-Swiss actor, who was compared to French actors Gerard Philipe and Jean Marais and American actor James Dean in his youth, must have caught the attention of the feral pigeons in the photo above shot in Venice by Jack Garofalo (more photos here) in 1962.

Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
