TV tip: Fred Lebain on ARTE

2008-06-02

Who remembers Fred Lebain? This Paris-based photographer is well known amongst Lomographers for his fabulous Mes vacances avec Holga photo book. Last week I accidentally stumbled across a TV program called “Künstler Hautnah/l’art et la manière” on French/German TV-channel ARTE. The program was dedicated to Fred Lebain; in a 25 minute feature you get an insight into his work and life – including the work on “Mes vacances avec Holga”, the photobook “Irasshaimase” on Japan where he used mostly cross-processed photos, and a recent project on still-life photography with chocolate-covered objects. Definitely recommendable to anyone interested in creative analogue photography (that should be you)!
